A quiet village setting, deep in the Bedfordshire countryside, just adds to the appeal of this cosy 300-year-old pub. There’s a beer garden with views across the fields to distant woodland, and a traditional, cottagey interior. A good range of real ales can be found in the bar, while the restaurant menu covers pub classics like sausage and mash, a choice of burgers, various steaks, and freshly battered cod, or maybe lamb hotpot, homemade beef lasagne or chick pea and potato curry. A traditional roast is served on Sundays, a gluten-free menu is available, and the specials board changes regularly.
