About Us

Little Gems Country Dining

Nestled within…

the heart of Milton Keynes Village

This Little Gem is a beautiful 13th century thatched country pub & restaurant, which has undoubtedly changed over the years, yet retains a wealth of original features & oozes a rustic, rural charm. (Just remember to duck when entering!)

Our orchard beer garden is ready for summer & is the jewel in our crown. Have a nose around and you’ll find all sorts of wonderful herbs and fruit, all of which are used in our kitchen…

You’ll find us in the heart of the original Milton Keynes Village, the perfect backdrop to savour our delicious menu. Everything is freshly made in our open kitchen and changes in line with the seasons, using the best local produce we can get our hands on, served in the comforting surroundings of our restaurant. Something to note… If you think your home grown veggies are top of the crops then bring them along…we accept them as currency!

Accompany your better half, family or whole party …we cater for all, providing a children’s menu, customized set menus for your party & un-intrusive service for those special nights out for two.

The Swan Inn

Planning a shindig? Just let us know & we’ll take all the hard work off your hands…(It helps that we love a party!)

We can’t fail to mention that we’re a proper pub … Boasting top credentials from Cask Marque, you’ll find a nurtured selection of real ales in our bar (two of which change weekly) along with some great lagers, premium spirits and a wine list as long as your arm!

We’re located just a stone’s throw away from the centre of Milton Keynes, so whether you’ve had a tough day at the office, been cheering on your team at Stadium:mk or had a hard days shopping at thecentre:mk, we’re the perfect spot to stop & recharge those batteries!

We look forward to welcoming you soon!

Little Gems Country Dining

An intimate company, with five pubs

Little Gems Country Dining started in October 2006

and so far we’re a small, intimate company with five pubs. We make it a company principle to use this intimacy to support our pub managers, so that they can run the pubs with their own style and personality. Managers make decisions about menus, staff and local marketing and we do the support functions for them (so they get to do all the fun bits). We pride ourselves on doing the simple things really well and keeping our focus on the staff and customers. In our kitchens, our Head Chefs concentrate on providing home cooked menus with specials menus that change every day. Provenance, sustainability and sourcing British food is important to us, and we keep our dishes simple and not over presented.
