Being a lady travelling alone I was made to feel very welcome by the friendly staff . I had lasagne... More

We decided to try The Shoulder of Mutton because, living in Milton Keynes, we are sick of the chain restaurants and fast food places that you find absolutely everywhere. This is a rural, locals-type pub with decent, home-cooked food and friendly staff. It is a fairly basic, no frills restaurant but the food was well cooked. We opted for the... More

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

Room ok, comfortable, room service was basic could have done with a flick of the duster and coffee replenished, but the staff were lovely and we forgive oversights! Pub nice with good selection of real ales. the food looked lovely... 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
