Great food as usual. Staff always friendly and helpful. One of my favourite places to eat. Would recommend it every time. Have introduced many friends to the excellent food and service.

A converted barn nestled within the Maulden, Warren & Clophill woods, The Flying Horse is a cosy gastro pub offering al fresco dining and a menu modern British fare with a hint of Mediterranean influence. Inside, a bar & a restaurant retaining some of the barn’s original features make the establishment a quintessential country-style retreat.

With chefs given the opportunity to train at cookery schools in Spain and Italy, The Flying Horse restaurant menu features modern signature recipes made using the finest seasonal ingredients. As well as creative daily-changing specials, favourites include Mediterranean mezze, seared chicken breast with sweet potato rosti & buttered British beans, and spit-roasted chicken with lemon & garlic confit. A kids’ menu and Sunday roasts also feature, and desserts include rich vanilla and chocolate gelato with home-baked cookies.

The result of a treasured partnership with Rothschild wine merchants, the cellar showcases many fine wines, while token real ales and premium spirits are found at The Flying Horse bar. Nostalgic British nibbles and eclectic sharing platters bursting with international flavours offer more laidback dining.

The Flying Horse in Clophill is an 8-minute drive from Flitwick Railway Station.

    Plenty of parking spaces.
    Excellent menu with interesting and varied options. Plenty of time given to choose and we were not rushed at any time during our meal.
    Waiting staff were knowledgeable about each dish and where they weren't sure they asked the chef.
    Clean, bright, warm and inviting environment with a cosy and comfortable traditional style pub area away from the dining area. Dogs were permitted on leads.
    Food was as described, hot and tasty.
    Tables laid correctly with proper napkins - not just cutlery shoved into a mug as in some gastro style pubs!!

    One small criticism - we did have to ask for our water jug 3 times before we got it. I feel this is due to not many staff on duty.

    Good value overall.

    I have been to this restaurant on a couple of previous occasions and had good experiences but I was disappointed with the service this time around, the waitress was not helpful, a little off when asked simple questions and just generally did not give the impression she wanted to help. The food I had was very nice though.

    Me and my partner each had a roast dinner, but the potatoes were undercooked and the roast chicken tasted as though it had been microwaved!
