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.

    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!

    Booking service good
    Sunday roast disappointing service very good

    Unfortunately the food quality was very poor and we had to send the food back.
    We had a bread nibble to start, it seemed to me that our mains were plated up to far in advance and left under hot lights as the fries were cold the bread on the burgers were hard overall extremely dissapointing and I wouldn't go back there again.

    Food is excellent quality and amount is just right. Highly recommend the roasts. Only complaint I have is they only brought out two dishes, then when we were nearly half way through ours they brought out the second two dishes. When there are four people eating together it would be nice to eat all at the same time. But apart from that, it is one of the best restaurants we have been to. Plenty of staff and all very friendly and helpful. Plenty of tables outside too.

    Service was quick and staff polite and professional. We were able to book at last minute despite there being a beer festival on.
    Slight negative that staff did not explain the menu or state what the dishes of the day were.
    Other than that the whole restaurant experience was very enjoyable

    Our experience was very dissapointing. Waited awhile for drinks, had to ask for additional water that we had already asked for. Main was ok. Dessert was not nice at all and waited over 30 mins for someone to come to give us the Bill in which we got up and went to main bar and asked for Manager. We could of easily just walked out without paying. No attention to detail at all. Wont be be going back....

    The food was really nice but the service was not good. I also asked for a special dish or something as its my boyfriends birthday but they did nothing. They also thought we were a party of 15 when there were only 2 of us!
