In a charming old Victorian building, The Flying Fox Woburn 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.

    Sorry about the negative feedback but, drinks were wrong, roast dinners came out with no stuffing, complained to the waitress she said in was in the bacon and sausage which it clearly was not. Wrong beef dinner came out, and was charged more, but it did come off the bill after we complained. We mentioned the stuffing again, she said she would have a word in the kitchen, had no feedback. No check back on our dinners either. I know these are small things, but it is sometimes the small things that need to be right.

    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.
