user reviews of the Burnt Oak, Shenley Brook End

Pretty bog standard Marstons pub on the edge of a housing estate. Brakspear Bitter, Jennings Cumberland Ale, Wychwood Hobgoblin & Ringwood Boondoggle were the options. Service was quick and friendly. The interior is fairly modern and seems to be popular with families. Otherwise, there is very little to recommend it for.

First impressions suggest this is a modern, estate pub although with itís brick facade and round room with an unusual conical roof on the left it perhaps seems to have a bit more character than many.

Inside though, itís in many ways more of a sports bar. There was a plasma screen at each end, both showing football matches. The conical roofed room on the left had a couple of card tables in, and there were some games in progress. There was a darts board on the right and a couple of quiz machines. Decor wise itís suitably bland as is to be expected from modern, chain pubs with burnt cream paintwork, some wood panelling, a few stone slabs around the bar and carpet elsewhere. A number of non-descript drawings were on the wall, such as one of the Statue of Liberty. Quite what the connection with Milton Keynes is, Iím not sure.

A typical mass produced menu was on the tables and proudly proclaimed that main courses started at £2.95. Quite what that says about the quality Iím not sure, but then I didnít try the food so perhaps Iím judging it unfairly. However, I did attempt to try the food Ė ordering at about 8:10pm in a chain pub such as this with menus still on all the tables, I would have expected to be able to get something, but apparently the kitchen shut at 8:00pm. The menuís were still on the tables when I left three-quarters of an hour later though, so clearly thatís not an indication that theyíre actually serving. Perhaps if the barmaid had spent a little less time chatting to her mates she could have attended to this.

Although there were four hand pumps on the bar, only two were in use dispensing Wizardís Staff and Brakespear Bitter. The solitary cider was Strongbow, unfortunately. All in all, a pub best avoided. And what on earth are they doing with a Christmas Tree up at the beginning of October?

A good local estate pub. They invested in some nice outdoor seating last summer and I tend to go here on warm days and sit outside.
