In a charming old Victorian building, The Flying Fox near Milton Keynes has oaken and brick furnishings, and serves trusty British pub cuisine. Prizing its beautiful pastoral location, and with views to King’s Wood, The Flying Fox features an idyllic garden with seating and a cosy log fire.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Flying Fox menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Flying Fox ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

The Flying Fox is only 7 minutes’ drive from Fenny Stratford Station, and 9 minutes from Milton Keynes Train Station.

    Lovely old pub, fantastic food and welcoming hosts. It was really easy to book online. Ample parking spaces, easy to find. Good selection on the menu, reasonably priced. My fiirst choice was not available but I'm really glad as my second choice of beef wellington was superb. My friends also had great food and nothing was left. The staff were very accommodating and helpful they even lit the fire for us to have a cosy corner as it was chilly outside. The toilets were clean and tidy, well stocked with essentials. One minuscule detail that would have been easily rectified if we had brought it to there attention was that the wine glasses on the table, although washed, were smeary and water streaked not shiny and polished. Apart from that, which was inconsequential everything was great and we had a lovely time. Highly recommended as the food was superb.

    The service was very good and the staff were really lovely. The food, however, was very mediocre. The 'garden' is just a few tables in front of the restaurant by the road and were all in deep shade when we arrived on a lovely sunny evening, so nobody was sitting outside.

    We had a lovely Sunday roast and the staff were really excellent with my 97 year old Uncle. Highly recommended.

    Lovely as usual. They had sorted a nice table for us in the restaurant bit. Was a bit concerned as have been there a number of times with no problems and then read some rather worrying reviews about it going downhill and the food not being very good. Our food was lovely, no complaints whatsoever, everyone enjoyed their meals. It was quite busy and so we had a slight wait for our drinks but the staff were welcoming and very attentive. Will definitely be going back :)

    It was lunchtime and I believe we were the first order of the day, I chose the fish and chips, the triple cooked chips were dry and tasteless, I only ate 4! The fish was lovely but sadly the batter was oily and gooey inside. My friend had the Hunters chicken which she said was lovely and agreed chips were dry but she had sauce to liven them up a bit.
    Dessert was lovely as was the coffee. Can't fault the service.
