Please note we STRONGLY advise calling ahead during December if you wish to come for LUNCH OR DINNER as tables are very limited with just a handful available now until January



Our village pub & restaurant is situated in picturesque Emberton, one mile from the pretty market town of Olney, famous for John Newton's Olney Hymns, Amazing Grace and the world's oldest pancake race. 

In a grade II listed building, at over 200 years old it's a bit rough around the edges but we have a big heart and we work daily to improve it bit by bit. We believe we're quite unique in our area. 

We concentrate not on the decor but ensuring we deliver a fun and interesting experience. A traditional public bar serving great unique drinks and a quirky restaurant with heart and passion. MK Food Awards Chef of the Year 2107, Jon and partner, Sophie, are not only only the owners but work tirelessly, hands on, in the business every day.


We are a small independent family run free house pub with an intimate restaurant. Chef-owner Jon & Sous Chef Brendan have worked all over the world and alongside some of Britain's great chefs. Our award winning restaurant serves our acclaimed Modern European à la Carte menu from Tuesday Evenings through to Saturday Evenings and our fantastic value Set Lunch Menu at Lunch times from Wednesday to Saturday. We finish the week with a highly regarded and exceptionally popular à la carte Sunday Lunch menu. Michelin trained owner and front of house manager Sophie and her young team ensure an impeccable yet relaxed level of service whilst bringing a fine dining service style to the pub.

Booking is advisable at all times as our restaurant has only a few tables and books up quickly often weeks and months in advance.

Our main bar is old fashioned and is used as a great meeting place for locals, clubs, committees and professionals. A beer enthusiasts dream village pub, we've won many awards for our Real Cider, Real Ale, European & Craft Beers. We have a small snug area now equipped with tv showing live sport on both BT Sport and Sky Sports. If you want to watch your favourite team please ask. First requests secure what matches and sports are shown. If you're unsure.... please call us.
