Jon Adriaenssens: Chef of the Year - Winner
Milton Keynes Food & Leisure Awards 2017
Milton Keynes Pub of the Year 2018
A la Carte
The restaurant side of the building is exactly that, a restaurant. In the evening, we serve an interesting and always fresh a la carte menu and leave the burgers and steaks (except on special nights) to other fantastic and well established pubs in the area. Our fish is delivered fresh daily and never frozen. Our cuisine style is French / British and cooked with both traditional skill and modern methods. The menu consists of four starters, five main courses and four puddings, by keeping our menu seasonal and concise we can always offer you the best quality and freshest food. We are still a pub at heart so there is no formal dress code.
We would suggest that the restaurant isn't suitable for under 14's in the evening, but of course well behaved children of any age are always welcome. We do not offer a children's menu.
We would also like to remind people to ring ahead if they do not have a reservation, We only have a tiny restaurant and kitchen, we'd hate to have to turn you away, it's a long walk to the next place!
Our set January to November 12.30pm until 1.45pm. Served in our restaurant only.
Wednesday to Saturday.
A smaller menu with all of the care in preparation and ingredients but with a great price!
Sunday, we adapt our a la carte to offer a range of award winning Sunday roasts complete with proper homemade gravy, freshly cooked vegetables and big homemade fluffy Yorkshire puddings! We extend our lunch service too from 12.00 until 3pm to give more people the chance to enjoy a family lunch with us.
Sundays are booking only and can book up months in advance, please don't hesitate to call if you have a special Sunday planned.
We are very proud of our suppliers and local producers.
