The Old Thatched Inn
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Tucked between Buckingham and Winslow is the picturesque village of Adstock. Here, you’ll find a gem of a gastropub and the deserving winner of the Aylesbury Vale Pub of the Year award in 2016, The Old Thatched Inn. This gorgeous 16th-century thatched building exudes the promise of a very special evening, with its rustic dining room cleverly laid out to afford privacy and space for guests. The bar offers comfortable, sociable seating, including a coveted spot in front of the open fire.
The Old Thatched Inn boasts a carefully considered seasonal menu of locally sourced food. Everything from the bread to the ice cream is homemade on-site by the fantastic chefs. To start, we settled on chicken liver parfait with walnut and raisin crostini, and the delicate goat’s cheese beignet with honey dressing. This was followed by a juicy Shorthorn sirloin steak from the grill, to which we added a side of onion rings which were stacked high and coated in the crispiest, tastiest batter. The fish pie was our second selection, made from fresh seafood delivered daily from New Billingsgate Market. To finish, we spoilt ourselves with white chocolate mousse with crushed raspberries and an apple crumble tart with decadent caramel ice cream.
Every member of the team helped to create a wonderful atmosphere and made us feel that nothing was too much trouble. This tremendous gastropub puts Adstock well and truly on the culinary map.
