A great comedy night is to be had here monthly on a Sunday night in the rear outbuilding. As for the pub, it's a place that could could be better. I don't know who taught the bar-people how to pull a pint, but they've all obviously been taught it - wrongly. It's not a competition to get the glass filled as quickly as possible! That said, the prices are pretty good and the beers are well kept. Might pop in when passing for a pint when I'm not going to the comedy night to reevaluate.

Probably Newport Pagnell's best pub and the ales would be the main reason although pictures depicting military actions from the First World War era are also a nice touch - a fabulous poster shop across the road has perhaps been plundered? A good bevy of locals were quaffing although the distaff fraternity were not well represented.

A traditional high-street pub in the heart of Newport Pagnell, and is, I believe, family owned which makes a nice change from the ubiquitous PubCo chains.

Inside it's not quite as big as you might expect it to be from at the outside, but is nonetheless still a reasonable size. Light wood panelling covers the lower part of the walls and there are numerous pictures dotted around up above, many of old soldiers in various different uniforms. To the left is a smallish room which might be described as the public bar, having a darts board, plasma and a large alloy wheel (an Aston Martin one presumably, given the pub's close proximity to the original factory) although there are still a couple tables and chairs.

This is separated from the main pub area by a free standing, brick chimney breast. The decor here is much the same, and it continues around the bar counter in an L-shape. A glass display case houses a full size soldier's uniform as well as various other military paraphernalia. There is a small courtyard with a couple of benches at the rear of the pub. Other than that it was difficult to really get a feel for the place as it was absolutely rammed on a recent Wednesday evening visit due to the popularity of their quiz night.

Beers on tap were Bank's Bitter, Great Oakley Gobble, GK IPA and Pedigree Diamond. The solitary cider was the splendid Thatcher's Gold, which makes a pleasant change from the Strongbow that seems to be served up in most other pubs around these parts.

Marstons pub that enjoys a nice location at the centre of Newport Pagnell nextdoor to a sweet shop and opposite a very tempting chip shop. We entered from the rear and through an old corridor. The first thing that hits you is the smell of dogs. No sign of any canine creatures during our visit. But the smell is all too apparent when you enter. Beers were Batemans Victory Ale, Wychwood Hobgoblin, Marstons Pedigree & Banks's Bitter. Locals were indulging in a meat raffle. Popular pub that seemed to be Newport Pagnell's best option. Nice pub. Shame about the smell.
