Landlord Sarah welcomes you and your guests to The Dukes, a warm and homely venue for your unique wedding reception. Nestled in a village 8 miles from Milton Keynes, this atmospheric 18th-century building is perfect for lively or more laid-back celebrations, with its walk-around open fire, conservatory restaurant and a well-stocked pub bar.

Though exclusive party hire is free of charge, The Dukes will always strive to accommodate your individual wedding celebration. The fantastic and well-organised team will consult with you about special requirements, going the extra mile for you. Above all, you will feel comfortable, happy and relaxed - all the things you should enjoy on your big day.


At 260 years old, The Dukes is a Grade II-listed building that has retained its classic, cosy charm to this day. With many original features under a thatched roof, the pub combines the comfort of the old with the freshness of the new.

Refurbishments include the addition of a lovely air-conditioned conservatory restaurant. Sisters Sarah and Jo have worked hard to create the perfect atmosphere for a comfortable, fun occasion; you will feel welcomed and at home.

Sarah personally has over fourteen years of experience in hospitality, having worked as a restaurant manager in a Michelin-starred venue, thereby becoming skilled in all aspects of the trade. She is the proud landlord and landlady of The Dukes, and extends a warm welcome to brides and grooms at this historic and charismatic wedding venue.


Recently refurbished, The Dukes presents a convenient combination of an atmospheric traditional pub with a cosy restaurant, and in addition there are several ensuite bedrooms for you and members of your wedding party to enjoy.

With an open fireplace, comfortable seating and tables for drinking, dining and games, you will feel right at home in the pub area. With room for 50 in the bar, it won't be hard to create an atmosphere, as the Juke Box is available for your use. For more of a party environment, hire a DJ for the night - which will be free for parties of over 50 guests!

Bar Capacity - 50 Guests

There is also a lovely connecting conservatory restaurant with linen-dressed, candlelit tables for a further 50 guests.

Bottles of wine, cocktail jugs and a selection of draught beers are all served at the bar.
