This historic pub feels like it's nestled in a lost valley in North Yorkshire, but it's just freeway-minutes away from Windsor Castle and the bustling streets of London.

It's a large, two story building yet with a lovely cottage feel to it. I counted three rooms: the bar, a lounge and dining area, not to mention an ample beer garden outside. Very comfortable, homey, lived in pub that you can really relax in.

I thought this place was Brakspear-tied, but while there I had an Old Hooky from the Hook Norton brewery, so I'm not 100% sure. The beer was kept well and tasty enough. The menu is fairly large for a place in the sticks and the food is terrific, especially the desserts.

The village of Turville is quite tiny, maybe around a dozen houses. On the rabbit-strewn hill overlooking the place is a windmill which you can see in the movie "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang". The old Vicarage, as well as aerials of the village and valley were used in the popular BBC sitcom "Vicar of Dibley". There's also a dark side to the place. A past owner of the Bull & Butcher apparently murdered his wife and dog in the bedroom upstairs, then shot himself in the orchard out back. Check out the website from more info on this interesting place.
