The Shoulder of Mutton
Ranked #8 of 34 Milton Keynes B&B and Inns
Reviewed 21 January 2017

This pub in the pretty village of Calverton changed hands late last autumn, and I hope it will soon become known as we had a very good lunch here today. We all had the same, which was good quality seabass, with large prawns and scallops, in a tomato/chilli sauce, fresh veg, and a choice of new potatoes, crispy chips with skin on (excellent), or dauphinoise. The three of us each had different potatoes, and we agreed that all were extremely good. I do recommend those chips! I thought they would be wedges, but they were real chips, but with skin on, and beautifully crisp. We all agreed we would return. The owner was charming and helpful. Give it a try! It is well worth it.

Room Tip: This is not an hotel, but a village pub that serves food.

The pub food in Stony is generally disappointing, Crown has the best food in the Village, but just outside the village you will find this pub. Good home cooked pub grub, most of the time.
Very nice in summer with room for kids to play, big sunny beer garden, with nice views of the surrounding fields.

A great atmosphere and excellent food. The staff were so welcoming.
