Bar menu
Open all year

There are new owners at this 300-year-old pub, set in a secluded no-through-road village deep in the Bedfordshire countryside. It’s a comfortable, cosy and traditional place, with a cottage-style interior and a pleasant beer garden with views across the fields to distant woodland. You’ll find a good range of real ales and ciders in the bar, while the restaurant menu covers pub classics like steak and ale pie and ham, egg and chips; a choice of burgers, and various steaks or a mixed grill, while fish mains might include sea bass. Start with pan-seared scallops on garden pea mash; garlic mushrooms; or whitebait.
