We had our extended family over from Italy for a special meal. Nothing available on menu that we wanted. We booked the table a week prior to dining. Staff were very accommodating and we were having a make do meal and the evening was drawing to a close. The pub was empty and our children were happy playing causing no upset or trouble to any other visitors. (There were no other people in the pub). The landlord then stood up and berated the children for making too much noise and disturbing his meal with his wife and kid in the corner. We were told off like naughty school kids and embarrassed everyone concerned, adults and children alike. When challenged the landlord made out like he had all of our best interests at heart when really he wanted peace and quiet, (9pm at night). Our bill came to just over £200 but this did not seem to matter. Personally I thought that if he wanted the pub to himself he should have closed. Kids should be made to feel welcome, especially as there is a kids menu on offer. This totally ruined our experience and we will not be visiting again. We were eating in this restaurant 1-2 times per month and the bill was never less than £80 when we were visiting as a family. He should be thinking of this when making diners feel unwelcome. We would strongly advise anyone with a family wanting to eat here to think again. He has lost our business now and is a very rude man, unprofessional, greedy. He let himself down and his staff. Go to the red lion on Leighton buzzard rd instead.
