It's a nice place. We used the SoM recently traveling for 3 days into MK to a JW.org convention. . . The pub is traditional, the setting is stunning and the food; good solid pub grub! The staff are friendly and the landlady is accommodating. The room was nice (6) with the only criticism being that the bathroom desperately needs... More

We went for lunch today (May Bank holiday). We know this pub and it is always a great place for a decent pint. Today it was Sharp's Doombar and Timothy Taylor's Landlord, both in excellent condition. The food you could tell was fresh ingredients and home cooked. The beef stew, a special of the day was lovely, served with a... More
