76 Woburn Road, Heath and Reach, LEIGHTON BUZZARD, LU7 0AR
Tracy Balen took over this free house on the outskirts of Leighton Buzzard in 2015. The wood-beamed bar is cosy with an open fire, or in summer take your refreshments out to the pretty courtyard garden with its children's play area. Cask ales are well represented from the likes of Tring, Hopping Mad and Vale, ably supported by cider from Westons, draft lagers and quality wines. Food served in the bar or restaurant follows traditional lines with ploughman's, jackets, sandwiches, paninis, grills and pub favourites like bangers and mash; gammon steak, chips and egg; or mushroom risotto.
