Equidistant from Junctions 13 and 14 of the M1, on the A5130 close to Woburn Sands, The Wavendon Arms offers a warm, relaxed and friendly ambience from the moment you enter. Recently renovated, the interior is light and airy, with stone floors and comfy leather furniture surrounding the well-stocked bar. In the restaurant, find specially designed solid teak tables and chairs - no wobbly or squeaky furniture here - circular leather banquettes line one wall, and in winter be warmed by the crackling log fires. When the sun shines, the Olive Tree Restaurant offers the opportunity to dine outside under broad parasols, or you can take a drink in the garden while you study the menu and wine list.

Here, modern food is simply cooked; pizza, fish, steaks and pasta all feature; or ask for the specials menu, where the chefs' thoughtful creations for the day are made using produce selected each morning. I heartily enjoyed a starter of grilled garlic prawns with saffron aioli dressing, followed by monkfish on a bed of mashed potato, and a spicy currant and raisin tart pudding to finish, served in a pastry case with fresh cream and ice cream - simply delicious. House wines include two whites and two reds, available by the glass or carafe. We asked for the general manager's recommendation and a very quaffable carafe of house cabernet shiraz arrived to accompany our meal.

This is comfort food to be enjoyed with good company; there are nooks and crannies for couples and larger tables for parties, but a single person will feel equally at home. The staff are well trained, courteous and willing to oblige the merest of whims or the more unusual request. Nothing appears to be too much trouble and their knowledge of each dish on the menu is to be commended.

A large well-lit car park makes finding The Wavendon Arms easy, and there are plans afoot for a new conservatory to expand the facilities available to guests. I look forward to seeing it on future visits.
