Under new ownership since January 2015, this picturesque thatched pub, handy for the Grand Union Canal, now “combines warmth, good friendly service and excellent and hearty pub fare”.

Very Good

Owner's description


A huge Thanks to all our lovely customers and overwhelming support over our first year.  We couldn't have done it without you!

Set in the picturesque village of Cheddington, this thatched, ‘picture postcard’ Free House has been part of village life in Cheddington for longer than anyone can remember!

Having lovingly restored this fabulous building we have had a wonderful first year and still have plenty to offer our ever changing seasonal menu and varied choice of local real ales is a must to try.  We pride ourselves on value for money in every sense...

Our ever growing popular events from our May and August bank holiday beer and music festivals, to popular weekly food event night, quarterly quizzes and live music adds to the feel of a 'proper' country pub
