THE OLD

Land­lady Jane Joel has just launched a new ‘fish and fizz’ evening at the pub on Thurs­days.

She said: “Each week our chefs will be cre­at­ing a three-course fish-based set-menu which will in­clude a glass of prosecco for £15, £17.50 or £20 for one, two or three cour­ses.

“If you fancy some­thing a bit lighter, our chefs will also be cre­at­ing a tem­pura fish plat­ter which will cost £12.50 and that also in­cludes a glass of prosecco.”

As the menu op­tions are made fresh each week with the best fish they can find, the menus will be avail­able each Tues­day evening – visit the web­site at www.the­oldswan­pub.co.uk. THE POT­TERS

Richard Ed­wards has a great com­edy line up at the pub this evening – and it’s still not too late to grab a ticket.

Erich McEl­roy will be your MC and John Fothergill is head­lin­ing. Gor­don South­ern is the open­ing act.

Food is in­cluded in the ticket price of £15 which this month will be your choice of black­ened ca­jun sword­fish with roasted Mediter­ranean vegetables, new pota­toes and fresh herb dress­ing or slow roasted con­fit of duck with spring onion mash, port & orange jus.

To book tick­ets, call Richard on 01494 726 222.

THE GREY­HOUND

Fancy test­ing your men­tal met­tle? Well the Grey­hound can pro­vide that op­por­tu­nity ev­ery Mon­day evening thanks to their fan­tas­tic quiz night.

Turn up at 8.15pm, pay your en­try fee of £1.50 per per­son and see just how good your ge­neeral knowl­edge re­ally is. And en­joy a great pint or a glass of wine while you’re work­ing the old grey mat­ter. Sounds like a great evening.

THE ROYAL

Surely one of the most at­mo­spheric pubs in the whole of south Bucks. This beau­ti­ful old inn is run by Matthew O’Ke­effe who has con­cen­trated on mak­ing the pub as wel­com­ing as pos­si­ble. Cheer­ful staff and a real his­toric at­mos­phere make the Royal Stan­dard a great des­ti­na­tion for a pub lunch, a quiet pint or as a wa­ter­ing hole at the end of a brac­ing walk through the Chilterns.
