Broughton Road, Milton Keynes Village, Milton Keynes, MK10 9AH
Silver Winner 2017
Judges comments - July/August 2017
'The gluten-free choice was superb, a whole menu with 6 starters, 9 mains, steaks, nibbles and sharer plates. Some were vegetarian. There wasn't a separate dessert menu, but GF dishes were clearly marked (4 options). My coeliac friend was overwhelmed and delighted with the choice! On the dessert menu, dishes containing nuts or those that were dairy-free were also indicated. (It would have been nice to see this labelling extended to the main menu and the gluten-free menu as that would have made my life, as a nut allergic, much easier.)'
'The food was really excellent. The portions were generous and lovingly made, the taste was amazing, some of the fruit and veg and herbs are home-grown, they have local suppliers and it was obvious that everything had been done from scratch (even down to homemade raspberry sauce and homemade honeycomb on the sundae).'
'An extremely comfortable olde worlde country pub – surroundings and food both amazing.'
