Lovely old inn hidden down alley, chunky tables, classic décor and sectioned off areas. Beers from Chiltern

Blackthorn _ left this review about The Farmers Bar at The Kings Head

An attractive old pub owned by the National Trust just off of Aylesbury’s market square, it was reputedly built in 1455 and, appropriately given the pub’s name, a number of kings have apparently stayed here over the years, including Henry VIII. There is a good sized central courtyard which was presumably for the benefit of horses at one time, but is now an attractive outdoor seating area. A courtyard bar has also recently opened here meaning that drinks can be purchased without having to return to the main bar within the pub.

The main bulk of the pub is off to the right as you approach from the market square and consists of several interconnected rooms. There is also a dining area off to the left which we did not investigate. Décor wise, it doesn’t have quite the olde worlde charm that you might expect, and whilst there certainly are still some notably old features, it has clearly also undergone renovation works over the years. Dark wooden boards were on the floor, whilst the low ceilings had the requisite black wooden beams, although these were fairly sparse in some areas. There were some areas of exposed brickwork although these had all been painted with dark grey paint whilst elsewhere was cream plasterwork. Several pictures of the local area were on the walls, and a number of old beer barrels had been pressed in to use as tables. Seating was a mixture of old wooden pews, a couple of old sofas and regular tables and chairs.

The menu offered a decent looking selection of pub grub dishes, with options such as grilled chicken, sausage and mash, burger, scampi & fries, and so on. Our beer battered haddock with chips and mushy peas was a pretty good dish, not as generous as some perhaps, but a tasty bit of fish and most enjoyable.

Beers on tap were predominantly from Chiltern Brewery, with their Pale Ale, Beachwood and Cobblestone and these were joined by Swannay Adrift. Ciders meanwhile were Stowford Press and Cornish Orchards Farmhouse. All in all, it certainly seems to be one of the better pubs in the centre of Aylesbury, not that that’s really saying much, and well worth popping in if you’re in the area.

Old Boots left this review about The Farmers Bar at The Kings Head

An old inn owned by the National Trust, almost hidden up an alley off the market place. Bits of half timber, proper board floors and mix of pub and unpubby furniture. Various spaces & rooms in a variety of styles and sizes. Dreadfully middle class but it has excellently kept beers mainly from Chiltern, four out of six casks were from them, there's also six keg taps not from the national brand stable, some of these are from Chiltern as well. Mainly buff walls with a collection of prints and photos to engage the attention. Very pleasant but a little pricey for my northern pocket at £3.55 for a 3.9% beer but maybe ok for the area.
