a nice old building in the corner of the kingsbury sqaure, with a nice traditional interior.

nice selection of beers, didn't eat but those who did seemed happy. good service, and footbal shown on skysports and Bt sports.

all in all its a good pub

Popped in a couple of times in the past month and on both occassions the beer was excellent, well kept London Pride and Brakspear Ordinary. The second time was for food and it was excellent. Home cooked using fresh ingredients, well presented and a great price at 21 for three main courses. There are pubs nearby charging more for mass produced stuff from a microwave. Two minus points: there aren't very many tables to sit at to eat and the music was a tad loud, but nevertheless highly recommended.

Strayed in there a while ago on the advice of a local CAMRA member and was pleasantly surprised.

Today they had Castle Rock Harvest Pale ale and Sharps Doombar both in excellent condition. This seems exemplary for their choice of ales, a lighter one and a more amber-ish one, and a lower alcohol and a medium alcohol one, nothing too extreme, always established ales, so no silly unbalanced experiments here.
In short, perfect if you are in a more 'conservative' mood and just want pure quality without surprises.

Also one of a few pubs that I am aware of that serve a 'dry' pint by design and not by accident. Dry on the outside that is
Strange that others still expect me to put on an overall before drinking an overflowing pint, or risk soiling my white shirts
The only other pub that I am aware of standard serving a clean dry pint is the Farmers' Bar, though they occasionally need some tissue for the same result.

And of course squeaky clean glasses, leaving a nice lace pattern after every sip.

This is one of the pubs I'll miss when going back to the Northern lands where they serve the real 'real ale'.
A shame Doombar isn't originating from my home too (probably a Northern defector stuck among the Celts; may need to organise a rescue mission one day)

Cheers

Surprised to read such a poor review as has been excellent on my previous visits, couldn't comment on food but had a lovely pint of Doombar and large wine (3.20 and 4.05), maybe cheaper places but not what I would consider to be "through the roof".

Went there again when in Aylesbury, has it changed hands? We were disapointed this time. Some food blew your head off and some was too bland. The cask beer seemed to have a bit of the finings still suspended as well. Drink prices have gone through the roof 9 for a large wine and a pint? I have paid 6 for a large Chablis in a posh pub in South Bucks, seemed dear for glass of plonk in this homely place.
