The Old Thatched Inn, Adstock

Muddy says: This pretty 16th century thatched inn in Adstock, near Buckingham, has its fair share of locals tumbling in for a pint but is actually a foodie destination in its own right.

This lovely 16th century building – a thatched inn, unsurprisingly – is in the small, well-heeled village Adstock, a few miles south of Buckingham. The pub has its fair share of locals tumbling in for a pint but it’s actually more of a foodie destination, offering 120 covers and a grown-up vibe in several eating areas, including a large modern conservatory.

Lovers of super-contemporary design won’t be fans of the aertex and middle-of-the-road furnishings but the log fires, low ceiling and general prettiness will please those appreciative of England’s thatched pubs.

Food is ‘foodie’ – you’ll appreciate The Old Thatched Inn best if you bed in for an afternoon or evening over three courses and a good bottle of wine.

Close by are Stowe Landscape Gardens, Silverstone and Claydon House so if you’re planning a trip out you might want to add this pub on your potential gastro list.

    We’ve been fans of this pub since coming across it about 10 years ago. Ownership has remained the same (always a good thing in our opinion) and the welcome and quality of food has never been less than excellent.

    The landlord Andy has another pub / restaurant a couple of miles away which is equally impressive.

    More than happy to recommend both, but hope that in doing so we find ourselves unable to get a table in future!!
