Good pub, been drinking here for years.
Only thing that lets it down is that the same beers are on all the time (no guest beers). Pride, Tetleys, Doom Bar, Broadside.
Beer selection is stuck in the past, if they served a hoppy beer then it would fly out of the pumps.

An attractive whitewashed stone pub with a thatched roof in what Great Linford rather euphemistically calls its High Street (the only other amenity there appeared to be an infants school).

The pub consists of a lounge bar off to the right, and a public bar to the left. The lounge bar is a very cosy, traditional country pub bar room with a low ceiling and plenty of black beams, a large brick fire-place at the back that housed a wood burning stove and had a couple of leather armchairs in front of it and there were plenty of copper pots and pans hanging around. Decor wise, there was a carpeted floor with dark wood panelling on the lower part of the walls, and red flock wallpaper above. A fish tank sat in an alcove with a very large orange fish in it. This was predominantly occupied by diners on a recent Tuesday evening visit, but this certainly isnt a pub where food dominates.

The public bar to the left is a slightly more basic affair but still looked pleasant enough. There were two plasmas showing a football match, plus another at the other end that was not in use. There were several fruit machines, a darts board and several trophy cabinets suggesting that the pub teams enjoy some degree of success. A friendly pub dog was also wandering round in here.

The food menu was extensive and offered a good selection of pub grub dishes such as ham, egg & chips, Chilli con carne, lasagne, pie of the day, fish & chips, curry, etc. Most of the mains were around the 6.50 mark which seemed very reasonable and I enjoyed my salmon fillet with a lemon butter sauce that was chosen from the small specials board.

There were a good choice of beers on tap with Adnams Broadside, Doom Bar, Timothy Taylor Landlord, London Pride, Greene King IPA and their own Nags Head Ale. On the downside, the only cider on tap was Strongbow, unfortunately.

Very popular old pub in a pleasant village location within Milton Keynes. Beers were Nag's Head Cask Ale (brewed by Tetleys for the pub) & Greene King IPA. Both of the 2 rooms were busy. At least one was showing live football on multiple screens and was popular with a young and old crowd. I liked the pub. But the beer range was a bit limiting.

This pub is a real charm. Great staff, friendly people (regulars include politics student Ryan Bowler - a real gent)

Lounge bar of this traditional thatched roof village pub (in High St of old village engulfed by Milton Keynes -agh!) dates back to mid-16th Century. Beer range includes Tetley's, Greene King IPA, and Adnams Broadside, unadventurous but all decently kept on hand-pump. Affable landlord and generally friendly regulars.

Pleasant surroundings facing Linford Manor grounds and canal beyond - better for boating visitors than the Black Horse or the Giffard Park nearby in my view, even if a couple of minutes walk from moorings. Recommended - it's my local and I like it, anyway
