Hadn't been here for 15-20 years and then met up here with friends and family recently. It certainly has changed in that time! Nice place though, nice food, good beer even though GK, expensive-ish.

Woburn has a lot to recommend it, situated as it is on the edge of the magnificent estate and containing some pretty buildings of ancient hue. On a mammoth walk from Bow Brickhill to Woburn Sands, we stopped off here and the rambling, long beer garden is a pleasant place to wile away a few hours. Inside though, it's a bland reconversion and just too in thrall to contemporary mores as to what good interior design is deemed to be. The ale slection is fine and the food looked good (although we did not partake)

A surprisingly large pub in the centre of the village, it looks fairly unprepossessing from the outside, but extends back a long way both inside and out.

The main drinking area is at the front of the pub and consists of an L-shaped area wrapped around the leather clad bar counter. There is smooth, very dark wood on the floor, pale cream paintwork and various photographs of pub clientele on the walls. A small brick fire-place to the right houses a wood burning stove, and a plasma in the corner was showing the football, although the volume was off so this was not too intrusive. There is a mixture of seating including a few old leather armchairs.

Beyond this the pub extends back a long way in to a restaurant area, with all tables laid up for food and bench seating with a plethora of red cushions. Outside is an attractive courtyard garden, and this too is surprisingly extensive, going on almost for ever it seems before finally tapering off to a point.

The food menu was a notch above your normal "pub grub" with the even the cheapest main course option costing over a tenner and going up to almost 20. It wasn't as extensive as some places with only six or seven main courses offered, although there were another half dozen options that could be ordered either as starters or mains and several sharing platters such as Cheese, Fish or Veggie. My Lime & Chilli Fish Cakes were decent enough, although at 11.75 you could well argue that they ought to be, despite them being the cheapest option available.

Beers were a little disappointing with just Greene King IPA and Old Golden Hen. There was also a Orange Wheat Beer. The solitary cider was Aspall's Suffolk.

Monday evening visit, friendly bar staff. Patrons around the bar all knew each other but left after a quick drink. Sampled the Olde Trip which was fine. Luton Town`s manager Gary Brabin was holding court with his scouse friends by the window.Small bar area, the remainder devoted to it`s restaurant which has a modern decor and was remarkably busy for a Monday evening. Would return.

I adored this place, from the moment you walk in your greated with a smile from the bar staff, with 3 real ales, i was more than happy, trying one of each over the course of the meal, an pleasntly suprised, each one better than the one before.
The food was brilliant, traditional english food with a modern twist, leaving you spoilt for choice. luck you can choose to have most of the dishes as a starter or a main, meaning you can explore more of the menu. Great pub! Great staff! Great beer! and Great food!
