Description: A McMullen house since 1995, the Old Beams was rebuilt after a fire in 2007. Enjoy Seriously Relaxed Dining in this hidden country gem at the heart of Shenley Lodge. With the remnants of the historical pub abutted to the newer oak framed barn, the ingeniously reconstructed Old Beams is a glorious triumph of gastronomy over adversity! Dine inside warmed by log fires in the vaulted oak barn or private dining rooms of the old pub or, weather permitting, alfresco in the garden or on the patio. We serve glorious food with daily changing specials, tasty world wines, craft ales and world beers, credible coffee all to be enjoyed in this idyllic retreat that’s your home from home – where the chefs do all the work for you and we do the washing up!

Hi Catriona G,
Thank you for your lovely review, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your visit with us. In the summer time when the sun shines, we are in an idyllic position here next to the lake, its a shame you came on a dull day as it doesn't do the location justice.
we look forward to welcoming you again soon.
kindest regards
Tracie & Scott (General Managers)

Really nice atmosphere on a Saturday night in an attractive location. Mix of original pub and a large extension. Decent beers and good food choice. Friendly and attentive service and high point for us were the desserts.

We haven’t been here for a long time as we moved out of MK. it came back and took mum and aunty for lunch. It was lovely. Staff were very attentive and friendly. The menu was full of lovely choices even for me, I don’t eat four legged animals. So much choice. The food was piping hot and tasty. Will definitely return.

Nice food and good service except when trying to get the bill! It’s amazing how hard it was to pay! But worth a visit if in the area.
