Graham Coombs left this review about Old Millwrights Arms

From the outside a fairly average-looking pub with a large Greene King sign, but going in I was pleasantly surprised by a nice row of handpumps facing the door. Generally U-shaped round a central bar, tastefully furnished with tabled areas to each side and soft chairs in the middle, plus a garden behind. Perhaps a little bit too comfortable for comfort, and the large screen showing a jungle waterfall for no apparent reason was rather unnecessary. On the pumps were an excellent range of beers from the likes of White Horse and Hook Norton, while I was drawn to a rather nice Elgoods Blackberry Stout in excellent condition (Cask Marque). Well worth the walk out from town.

Pleasant L-shaped bar, lots of space, a little bit out of the mail town centre. Good choice of real ales

A substantial street corner pub located just a short stroll across the canal from Aylesbury town centre, first impressions weren’t great with a Greene King sign outside but fortunately there was a very extensive range of beers on tap, by no means just the run of the mill offerings that one associates with that brewer. Add to that a delightfully cheerful barmaid (despite her tattoos and purple hair) and I could quite imagine settling in here for a few had I not had a table booked at the nearby Broad Leys.

Internally, it’s a single, open-plan L shape room with a wood strip floor. Dark brown painted wood panelling was on the lower part of the walls, with some flock wallpaper and plain plasterwork elsewhere. A large map on the ceiling was an unusual feature and a small brick fireplace with wood burning stove was off to one side. One table had a massive pile of board games stacked up on it, whilst a large TV screen was showing a football match. Some pale brown Chesterfield style bench seating was at the front of the pub, whilst a number of chairs had apparently been laid from old beer barrels – not just sawn off to make a stool, but a proper arm chair. A courtyard garden was at the back of the pub, and whilst not especially attractive this was still a pleasant enough spot. We didn’t study the food menu, but did see a few pizzas and burgers coming out.

Beers on tap were Tring’s Colley Dog, Greene King IPA, Tring’s Side Pocket for a Toad, Loddon Reading Best, Farr Brew Bitter, Timothy Taylor Landlord and Abbott Ale, whilst a board on the wall displayed a further selection that was coming soon. Ciders too were well represented with Abrahall’s AD, Farmer Jim’s Rootin Tootin and Aspall’s Suffolk. All in all, well worth a visit.
