“Much overlooked restaurant & best steak in Town.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012

The Cob & Pen is the Swan Revived's hotel/pub restaurant.

As locals, when we go out to eat we normally go to one of the many excellent restaurants in Newport Pagnell. But we fancied a standard steak dinner and the Cob is about the only place you can get one.

I went on Friday night with my wife and found that Fridays are Steak night; £28 for two steak dinners incluidng a bottle if wine. Result!

Our Sirloin & Rump were perfectly cooked and the wine of acceptable quality. the menu included a lot more than steaks of course and I'd imagine that the quality is equally good.

There was a large table if around 15 arrived the same time as us. It didn't seem to cause a problem for the kitchen or waitresses, although they could do with lightening up a bit, very polite and efficient but didn't seem very happy.

The restaurant decor is subtle & tasteful and there's a nice lounge bar for aperitifs & coffee etc

We will definitely be going back again next time.

“A gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2011

The food here was superb and only bettered by the service. We were the only two people eating at about 6.30 pm on a Sunday - and restaurants can be uncomfortable when so quiet - but the waiter made the event a pleasure. Definitely try this place out if you're in the area.
