I visited with my husband and some friends for a Thursday lunch just after Easter. It was quite busy with a good atmosphere in the dining room. The menu looked good with a great value set lunch menu. We however went on the a la carte menu with the tempura tiger prawns and a burger. We got 6 prawns that... More

Fantastic food, great service, lovely atmosphere. Perfect place to go on a summers day and sit in their beer garden with a cold glass of Prosecco. We have visited this place several times and has never let us down.

Have had several excellent meals here over the years, but very disappointed this evening. We pre-booked a table, but then had to wait over an hour from placing our food order to receive it. Okay if you are having a leisurely evening meal, but we were just looking for something fairly quick but nice to eat and a drink. Food... More

We were on our way out for the evening and chose this place for it's location nearby, we didn't book but were early and despite them having a fully booked dining room for a big party later, they fitted us in. The meal was lovely, one of the best we'd had in a long time. We were not rushed and... More

Been here a few times, the pub itself is beautiful and lovely to sit outside when it's warmer. Food is lovely but booking is definitely advisable as it gets busy even on a weekday.

This is the 1st time eating here, as a family celebration. Staff were friendly and overall service was great. I've been struggling with pub grub lately as a newly turned vegetarian, but the chestnut wellington was so good that I didn't even need to use the accompanied gravy! The sticky Toffee wasn't overly sweet either.

A very busy establishment so advisable to book in advance if wishing to eat in main restaurant. It has a large rear ga4den and tables outside the frontage to be able to enjoy a drink and enjoy the country setting. A short walk from the Holiday Inn Express hotel through a lovely quiet setting.

Thank Marjoram46

This Little Gem is a beautiful 13th century thatched country pub & restaurant, which has undoubtedly changed over the years, yet retains a wealth of original features & oozes a rustic, rural charm. (Just remember to duck when entering!) Our orchard beer garden is ready for summer & is the jewel in our crown. Have a nose around and you'll find all sorts of wonderful herbs and fruit, all of which are used in our kitchen... You'll find us in the heart of the original Milton Keynes Village, the perfect backdrop to savour our delicious menu. Everything is freshly made in our open kitchen and changes in line with the seasons, using the best local produce we can get our hands on, served in the comforting surroundings of our restaurant. Something to note... If you think your veggies are top of the crops then bring them along...we accept them as currency! Accompany your better half, family or whole party ...we cater for all, providing half portion sizes for children's meals, customized set menus for your party & un-intrusive service for those special nights out for two. Planning a shindig? Just let us know & we'll take all the hard work off your hands...(It helps that we love a party!) We can't fail to mention that we're a proper pub ...Boasting top credentials from Cask Marque, you'll find a nurtured selection of real ales in our bar (2 of which change weekly) along with some great lagers, premium spirits and a wine list as long as your arm! We're located just a stone's throw away from the centre of Milton Keynes, so whether you've had a day at the office, been cheering on your team at Stadium:mk or had a hard days shopping at thecentre:mk, we're the perfect spot to stop & recharge those batteries! We look forward to welcoming you soon! Wanida (General Manager)
