The Carpenters Arms

This is your nearest pub, about 200 yards away! But don't worry, it's a quiet village pub in a quiet village! And it is particularly well known for it food so a great place to wine and dine on your holiday.

The Royal Oak Inn

Aston Abbotts (map)

Some websites list this pub as 16th Century. It certainly deserves a visit as a close-by fully thatched public house, which does look like it's been serving beer for a very long time indeed!

The Boot

Soulbury (map)

The pub sign features a boot of the Duke of Wellington, but an older story says the villagers cut of the Devil's foot and it turned to stone. The stone is still in the village and is know as the 'Soulbury Boot'
