Villiers is a spectacular 18th Century 49 bedroom hotel situated in the heart of the historic market town of Buckingham. Villiers Hotel started life some 400 years ago as the Swanne upon the Hoppe, changing to The Swan and The White Swan in a short period of time.
Acquired in January 2017, Villiers has undergone a major refurbishment to all front of house areas and The Old Town Hall which provides all the meeting, serviced offices and function space. The Historic Ballroom has been brought back to life and now hosts events including Faulty Towers Dining Experience and ‘An Audience with Bernie Marsden’, both sell out events.
Looking for a venue in Buckingham for a special occasion then Villiers Hotel could be the perfect option.

Dukes Bar & Restaurant
All great hotels need a fantastic eatery for their hungry guests, and the ever-popular Dukes Restaurant & Bar is exactly that. Having held an AA rosette for more than 14 years and having featured in the very first Michelin Guide and in each guide ever since, the cuisine at Dukes is evidently some of the highest quality around.
The chef brigade takes great pride in delighting the diners with their sumptuous and locally sourced modern British dishes. The à la carte menu changes with the seasons, and the set-price market menu makes for a great value alternative. If you know someone who’s deserving of an indulgent treat, why not attend one of Villiers Hotel’s vastly popular afternoon teas? Served in the Dukes Restaurant, snug or lounge, warm your extremities by the roaring log fire and tuck into something scrumptious when the chilly weather sets in, or make the most of the sunnier months and eat al fresco, sitting on the courtyard terrace while sipping a glass of fresh Champagne alongside your decadent treats.
The chef’s selection of freshly cut sandwiches with homemade cakes, scones and pastries can be enjoyed each day, with the Battenberg being a particular favourite.
The Dukes Bar has maintained all the character and ambience of the old coaching inn, with flagstone floors, inglenook fireplace and original beams. A well-stocked bar of real ale, beer, wine and spirits are on sale alongside the bar and snug menu, which is sure to have something to sate your hunger.
