But bad if you are a couple or two couples wanting to chat. Everyone has to shout to be heard over the music. Poor food, don't have the risotto which is actually a savory rice pudding. Very 'can't be bothered' service. It seems that they...More

Unfortunately ate here today with colleagues. Slowest service ever for lunch cover. Food was poor. Scallop is just that you get one loaded with cheap cheese sauce. Chicken salad arrived with hair and without croutons. Fish cake soggy and swimming in sauce. Chips undercooked. Coke...More

We booked a table on Father's Day because I'd previously been for a work lunch and had a lovely meal. We weren't disappointed this time! Excellent food and very professional, friendly staff. Love it and will recommend to friends, family and colleagues. Thank you x

I ate here with a group of colleagues. The Inn knew we were coming. They knew when we were arriving. They knew when we had to leave by. They knew what we would be eating as this was pre-ordered. And yet... It took 45 minutes...More

Super little thatched pub; not something one would expect in Milton Keynes. It’s cosy in the winter with a roaring fire and cool in the summer. The garden is beautiful and a lovely place to relax and enjoy sunny days.

Two couples arrived for lunch and were seated - all well so far. We ordered, and our starters turned up and mine, a scollop at £6.75 was tiny - hardly occupying a scollop shell. Delicious, but barely a mouthful. Then the nightmare arrived. A mixed...More

We went out as 4 couples for dinner. Atmosphere and the ambience and the service was excellent. Food wasn’t as expected as portion sizes were very small even for a small eater like me. Prices were very way above the normal prices. My friend ordered...More

This Little Gem is a beautiful 13th century thatched country pub & restaurant, which has undoubtedly changed over the years, yet retains a wealth of original features & oozes a rustic, rural charm. (Just remember to duck when entering!) Our orchard beer garden is ready for summer & is the jewel in our crown. Have a nose around and you'll find all sorts of wonderful herbs and fruit, all of which are used in our kitchen... You'll find us in the heart of the original Milton Keynes Village, the perfect backdrop to savour our delicious menu. Everything is freshly made in our open kitchen and changes in line with the seasons, using the best local produce we can get our hands on, served in the comforting surroundings of our restaurant. Something to note... If you think your veggies are top of the crops then bring them along...we accept them as currency! Accompany your better half, family or whole party ...we cater for all, providing half portion sizes for children's meals, customized set menus for your party & un-intrusive service for those special nights out for two. Planning a shindig? Just let us know & we'll take all the hard work off your hands...(It helps that we love a party!) We can't fail to mention that we're a proper pub ...Boasting top credentials from Cask Marque, you'll find a nurtured selection of real ales in our bar (2 of which change weekly) along with some great lagers, premium spirits and a wine list as long as your arm! We're located just a stone's throw away from the centre of Milton Keynes, so whether you've had a day at the office, been cheering on your team at Stadium:mk or had a hard days shopping at thecentre:mk, we're the perfect spot to stop & recharge those batteries! We look forward to welcoming you soon! Wanida (General Manager)
