old beams

Welcome to the Old Beams, Milton Keynes.

Tucked away in the more residential areas of Milton Keynes, the pub sits on the foundations of a 1600’s barn once known as East Green Farm and for a short time as Shenley Lodge (hence the name of the surrounding town). In 2007 the pub was rebuilt after a fire, still using remnants of the historic pub.

The Old Beams is characterful with a spacious public bar hosting McMullen cask ales, a warm log fire and pocket dining spaces throughout the beautifully beamed building, making it a favourite hangout for locals and ideal for function hire. It is also home to a large beer garden that’s perfect for many a relaxed evening.

Our chefs prepare delicious British staples on the menu, are proud of their Friday fish bar and love cooking traditional Sunday roasts.

Cyclists and walkers are spoilt with nearby views of Furzton Lake, a peaceful oasis featuring art sculptures.

Tracie, Scott and the team look forward to greeting you soon.
