Pubs and Inns
The Old Red Lion Pub
The earliest information regarding Public Houses in the village date back to 1577. It is thought that the Old Red Lion was one of these. The building has changed very little since it was built.

In the 1960s the Kray twins were known to frequent the Red Lion when they stayed in the village.

The Old Red Lion is still a thriving concern, despite so many country pubs closing in recent years

The Duncombe Arms It is a different story however for the Duncombe Arms, first mentioned in 1802. This was previously known as the New Inn until 1817. This picture shows the property as it stands today as a private dwelling. In the late 1800's it is documented that the churchwardens of Great Brickhill paid the rent for it's Public houses.

There have been at least six public houses within the village, The Spinning Wheel, at the top of Cuff Lane, was still serving the village in the 1940s, but it is now a private house. At the very bottom of Cuff lane if you follow the path beyond the stream to the gate, you will be close to the site of yet another Pub, the Black Dog: No trace of this alehouse, or the houses that were near it remain.
