I remember a pet shop about there, early 60's, had a brilliant parrot, "Good morning, can I help you" when you walked in ... sounded exactly like the owner.

The pet shop ( with the parrot) was owned by Mr Hearn

It's a free country, adopt whatever PC stance you want. Just don't tell me which stance I should take just because it clashes with your opinion.

Andrews (Menswear) was The Mans Shop and was of course in the High Street.
Robertsons Butchers was run by Tom Robertson who still has a butchers in Little Chalfont to this day.
There was another butchers Allum & Glandfield next to Claydons (now Birrings) tucked back by where the Tile shop used to be.



So going on from here.
It seems there was a pub named “The five bells” it stood where “ The Bakers Arms “ used to be. In the early 1700’s.

Old records suggest Chalfont St Peter used to be known as 'the village of the seven pubs', which must have been an inordinately large ratio of pubs to villagers even back then.

Wandering down the High Street to just past the garage at Gravel Hill it used to be:  

Bakers Arms (ex 5 Bells) (R), White Hart (L), Carpenters Arms (R), George (R), Greyhound (L), Kings Arms (R), Rose & Crown (L), Wagon & Horses (R), Coach & Horses, (R) ... add to them: Jolly Farmer, Three Pigeons

... some pub crawl.

There used to be nine pubs in Chalfont St Giles, two at Three Households, (one was demolished for housing), the other being the White Hart, Milton's Head (now demolished), Fox & Hounds, the Feathers (now the Stone Place restaurant), the Crown (now Costa Coffee), Merlin's Cave, the Pheasant (now a Vet's), and the Ivy House. I've drunk in all of them except the one that was demolished at Three Households. How times, (and pubs), change!

The pub at the Three Households that was demolished was Uncle Toms Cabin. I remember it vaguely as I went into it at a young age, Kids didn't really go in pubs in them days, Have great memories of sitting outside it.
