Cosy 16th Century village pub overlooking fields. A rustic haven surprisingly close to Milton Keynes. There are two bars, a comfortable saloon with pews set either side of tables and a traditional, and usually quiet public bar, which doubles as a function room. There is a gazebo smoking area and a pub garden. Good traditional food served. Convenient for walkers using the nearby Swans and Shires Ways, who no doubt find the pub’s open fire makes it an especially welcome refuge in winter. Holds many charity events – a weekly quiz on Tuesdays at 9pm, bingo, horse- and dog- racing evenings and hog roasts twice a year, normally at Bank Holidays. Morris dancers visit the pub regularly in summer.The pub closed on September 16th 2018, and reopened under new management on 9th November 2018 following a minor refurbishment.
