The Bell Hotel serves food all day on Saturdays (bar snacks with main menu at lunch time), but can be busy between 12 and 2pm.

Travel Time in Winslow
The George, Rosie’s Bar and the Bell Hotel are within seconds of each other around the Market Square.  The nearest bus stop is Sheep Street.  This is also the nearest stop to the Nags Head but is a 5 minute walk away.  It is approximately 10 minutes’ walk along the High Street to the Swan from the Market Square and approximately 15 minutes from the Nags Head.  The X60 runs once an hour at 37 minutes past each hour from Sheep Street and 40 minutes past each hour from Avenue Road, near the Swan.  The 60 runs every 2 hours at 15.25 and 17.25 from Avenue Road.  It does not call at Sheep Street.  
**If you miss the X60 to Padbury at 16.40, there is a 60 at 17.25 and the last X60 from Padbury to MK leaves from the New Inn at 18.46.

There is room for flexibilty in the schedule.  The only restriction is the frequency of the buses.  For the full timetable,  please visit

Saturday 30th May, Cider PotY presentations

E-mail Print PDF
As part of CAMRA Cider Month, this Saturday we'll be having the presentations for the Cider POTY at The Lamb in Stoke Goldington from 12:15ish and then moving on to The Bell and Bear in Emberton from about 4pm. Travel info can be found below.

The real cider available in both venues is obviously top notch but cider drinking is not compulsory, both pubs serve an excellent selection of real ales as well. We hope to see as many of you there as possible to celebrate the awards whatever you choose to toast it with!



Stoke Goldington is served by the 37 from Wolverton New Bradwell, Newport and Olney - connections can be made from other parts of MK along the route. Emberton is served by the 21 from Lavendon, Olney, Newport and MK. For those of us who have to pay on the buses, the MK Moove ticket at £4.80 will cover travelling to both pubs from all parts of Milton Keynes Council area. From other parts of our branch, you'd need to get a ticket to the MK Moove boundary. 
Full timetable details can be found here MK Council bus info - summary table below.

If changing to the 37 at New Bradwell, you'll need to cross over to the opposite stop. The 40 only serves Cannon Corner in Newport, not Market Hill. If changing from the 2 @ 1135, Giffard Park roundabout or the stop just before the M1 motorway bridge are served by both the 2 and 37 and give a longer connection than Market Hill.

As an alternative to the 21 from Olney to Emberton, you could opt for the 25/30 minute walk.
