The village of Turville is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and this Grade II listed, 16th-century inn, originally known as the ‘Bullen Butcher’, (a reference to Henry VIII’s treatment of his second wife Anne Boleyn), enjoys beautiful country views. The Well Bar and the Windmill Lounge both feature original beams, open fires and a friendly, laid-back atmosphere. Children and dogs are welcome, and the large sunny garden and patio areas are perfect for alfresco dining. You can expect to find locally sourced produce on the menus, where hearty pub classics rub shoulders with less traditional offerings. The pub speciality is home-made pies, with a choice of pastry and accompaniments or for lunch try a ploughman’s or a burger, while dinner might begin with grilled garlic king prawns, or ham hock terrine with piccalilli; before moving on to pheasant with mini pie, Savoy cabbage and parmentière potatoes; or roasted butternut and gorgonzola ravioli with rocket salad and sage butter dressing. Round things off with chocolate pecan pie, vanilla ice cream and pecan praline shards or crème brûlée with langue du chat biscuit.
