We are a welcoming picturesque 17th Century country gastropub with an unusually large range of Organic wine. In our first year, we have been nominated for "Best small pub un North Bucks 2016". We pride ourselves on our locally sourced, seasonally influenced, freshly cooked gastro menu. Located just outside Aylesbury in the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside our 17th Century pub is the perfect place to unwind in front of a roaring log fire, or feel the warmth of spring and summer in our generous and peaceful walled gardens and outdoor patio. We are within three miles of Whitchurch, Watermead, Buckingham Park and Bierton and offer the tranquility of a country pub. We can cater for functions such as parties and anniversaries, business events or wakes in our dining room or, when warmer, on our patio. We also cater for families with members who need or choose to eat a particular diet - most of our menu is gluten and dairy free and we have delicious options for vegetarians and vegans. We are both family friendly - high chairs are available - and dog friendly (one side of the pub has a flagstone floor). If you enjoy our food and service you may also consider us to meet your outside catering needs.
