Detailed Information

Situated in the heart of the North Buckinghamshire countryside, along the beautiful Ouse Valley, stands the picturesque village of Clifton Reynes, with its quaint cottages and period houses. The 12th Century St. Marys Church is a little gem, and definitely worth a visit. Among the cluster of homes which go to make up Clifton Reynes, is The Robin Hood. A true country pub with a superb atmosphere. According to The Good Pub Guide – The Robin Hood is;A pleasant stone built pub, small & unpretentious. Friendly landlord, good service, well kept Greene King IPA & Abbot Ale with an extensive range of good food. We certainly wouldn\\\\\\\’t argue, and we hope you wont either. The superb menu has been created by our chef to cater for all tastes. From the exotic starters to traditional Sunday Roasts. The Special is an ever changing gastronomic experience, while the core menu reflects the need to provide from a light snack to the very best in traditional and contemporary cuisine. The first record of a licensee dates back to 1577, although local historians believe there was an inn on the site prior to that date. Originally The Robin Hood & Little John, quite how it got this name so far from Sherwood Forest remains a mystery. Prior to 1824, it was called The Carpenters Arms, and before that, The Rising Sun. Popular belief is that The Robin Hood name was encouraged  byThe Green Boys of Clifton a local band of volunteers, formed by the Reverend Cathcart to repel Napoleons army. A kind of Napoleonic Dads Army. A tenuous link perhaps but then, this is how legends are made! The tie between village & pub is still strong. In the lobby is a photograph of The Robin Hood in 1917. Standing outside is the then landlady, Alice Huckle, with her 2 year old daughter. Alices Grandson still lives within sight of the pub! The Robin Hood is surrounded by beautiful countryside, with 3 public footpaths converging at the pub. There is a wonderful walk over Clifton Heights with views of Olney that are truly breathtaking. The Three Shires Way passes the door popular with both walkers and horse riders. There is also a footpath to another charming village, Newton Blossomville & across the river Great Ouse to Turvey. We hold many events during the year, ranging from charity quiz nights & music festivals to special gastronomic evenings & banquets. We even put on a pantomime in a marquee in the garden in February! We can cater for all types of parties, be they Wedding Receptions, Birthdays, Anniversaries or, just a great time, or no reason at all. We have a large garden with plenty of grass to wear the kids out. A large patio area which isn\\\\\\\’t too far away from the bar. A light and airy conservatory which overlooks the garden. A warm & cosy lounge bar with an inglenook fireplace & log burning stove for those crisp winter nights. In the lounge, we have an extensive photo collection of Stage TV & Film Robin Hoods, from Douglas Fairbanks Jnr. To Kevin Costner. As a truly traditional country pub, we still have a public bar with the most traditional of games in these parts, Table Skittles. A game originally started by the shoemakers of Northampton.
