Bell and Bear, Emberton

Have been here a few times in last 3 months and enjoyed excellent ale and also the 2 local ciders that they sell from Milton Keynes orchards from the friendly and well informed Sophie.Had a chance to go to a Cider and Apple themed 8 course meal for a friends 60th and can only say it was one of the best and most creative meals i've enjoyed for a long time,clearly the Chef(Jon) is highly talented and put on a locally sourced menu which would put many a so called "restaurant" to shame.
This is a proper local with a warm welcome for anyone also if you're lucky on a Fri night a local baker pops in with the latest batch of artisan made breads.All pubs should be like this

The Black Horse, Great Linford

Thought i'd pop in and enjoy the chaos that this pub is,very entertaining to sit at bar and watch,much better than t.v.The poor staff almost run everywhere as there are not enough of them and barely keep the whole thing going and that is on a quiet night!! It's like watching a slow motion car crash! 2 real ales on until you ask for them and then get told they are off(be nice to turn clips aroud so as not to get excited).However after apologies the landlady put some more on and it was excellent(UBU Purity).I just wish the owners of this pub(M&B) would get their act together and allow the Landlady the money for staff before it all goes belly-up.

The Cricketers, Redbourn

Been here many times as my in-laws are locals,excellent choice of 4 ales 2 from Vale and 2 from Tring and very tasty and well kept,top location on the common with great views,hard to beat.Good atmosphere in the bar which has a good feel to it.
Excellent well thought out menu,very nicely presented by friendly helpful staff,all round a pretty good experience.One negative thought that also seems to apply to most places these days is that they seem to run out of imagination when it comes to the cheeseboard and settle for the usual suspects(cheddar,brie, stilton,goat) Shame when there are so many to choose from these days.All in all i cannot reccomend the Cricketers highly enough especially on the choice of ales.Enjoy
