A review of the Pub.
The pub is owned by the villagers who saved it from redevelopment 12 years ago. Norma and I are exiled Yorkshirefolk and we run it for them, offering 3 real ales and traditional pub food; she's a cook not a chef.

We are about 5 miles from Whipsnade Zoo and 1 mile from Ivinghoe Beacon, in excellent walking country, along the Grand Union for easy walks, up the Beacon for you fitter lot. Plenty of local golfing and horse riding.

I can fit in about 10 vans (not caravans) and can provide toilet and waste disposal. With a little notice I could provide emergency hook-up.

We are very busy on Sundays as we do a mean carvery, but midweek we are generally quiet. Anyone who is interested please give us a bell. Should we get full, hope hope, there is a certified camp and an unofficial one within walking distance.

Happy 2010 to all of you.

I spent a pleasant evening at The Village Swan and a quiet night in their parking lot back in October. Been meaning to leave a message here since then, but sometimes I have trouble finding that round tuit.

Thank you Alan and Norma.

Luckily I phoned ahead about going there last weekend as Alan and Norma are no longer there.

The new management were not as enthusiastic, so I did not go. However, try your luck if you like as by the end of our conversation I think Christine was coming round to the idea and you never know, depending on how much custom you give them they may be happy to help.

The POI files contain phone numbers for all the pubs, and it's advisable (and polite) to phone before travelling :)
