We really enjoyed the food here, and they had a fantastic selection of gins!! Only small issue was that the service was a little disjointed and could have done with being a bit more attentive. However we would definitely go again!

Former resident of Olney, I’m always drawn back to this pub for a guaranteed GOOD meal. This visit didn’t disappoint- fish and chips -lovely crispy batter and loads of chips! Steak n kidney pie, great pastry (all round!) lashings of excellent gravy! Son had Thai curry and was a little disappointed-he felt it could’ve been more spicy. Pud of raspberry crème brûlée was perfect!
Great atmosphere-we ate in the dining section of the bar, nice buzz but not too noisy to hold a conversation. Highly recommend for quality of food, menu choice and good pub atmosphere.

Haven’t visited for a while but the food is still excellent and great value for money. The Whitebait followed by the Hake was enjoyed greatly as was the Supreme of Chicken and the Goats Cheese salad with beetroot & walnuts.
A lovely traditional pub with great food amazing value too!

Service was ok with polite but rushed staff.

Chips were poor and steak was cooked as requested but somewhat tough with a salad that was hardly even decoration.

Scampi came with no peas and with equally poor chips.

The desert, a sticky toffee pudding, was well worth going back for again.

The relatively high price for the disappointing meal leaves us reluctant to return.

Lovely lunch served by attentive and friendly staff. My fish and chips were very tasty and the special of lobster linguine was also delicious
