A good sized pub set slightly back from the road in the centre of what was once a village, but is now part of the Milton Keynes metropolis. Although the outside appearance is stone built and quite traditional, it has a somewhat more contemporary feel once you get inside.

It's an L-shape pub, and off to the left inside the door is a small area with a pool table and darts board. To the right is a fire-place with plenty of large logs stacked up, although this was not in use on a recent visit. Elsewhere is a smaller fire-place with a plasma mounted above it, which was turned off. Flooring is mostly wood strip, with patterned carpet at the rear and the walls were a mixture of pale white and gold wallpaper and a very neutral paint.

The food menu was a very basic "pub grub" affair with options such as Ham Egg & Chips, Chilli Con Carne, Fish & Chips and a Giant Yorkshire Pudding and most of these were priced around the £5 - £6 mark which seems very reasonable. There was also a small specials board, although the barmaid pointed out that it was actually an "additions" board rather than a specials board, presumably because the listed dishes weren't really that special, e.g.; Warwickshire Rarebit and a Cauliflower Cheese Tartlet. My Chicken Curry was a decent enough dish with generous chunks of tender chicken and came with a couple of mini naan breads, rice and mango chutney. If I was being critical I would say that it could have done with a bit more flavour, but for the price it was really very good. If you're making a special journey, be aware that food is only served on certain evenings and even then only at restricted times such as 5:00 - 7:00. Furthermore desserts are only available on a Sunday lunchtime.

Beers on tap were Fat Cat's Hell Cat, Oakham's Vagabond, Young's Bitter and Doom Bar. The solitary cider was Strongbow, unfortunately.

It transpires a lot of people end up going in here because they've actually come to see the pub over the road, only to find it doesn't live up to it's reputation. this place is brill - good beer and friendly service. And really helpful to the pedestrian whose map reading isn't much good.
