About the Pub

This is a village pub that also serves the workers at the nearby Milton Park business and science park. It was previously called the Admiral Benbow after the famous early 18th-century sailor who once stayed at nearby Milton Manor. Owners Mandy and Jez, who have an excellent record of running pubs that have been included in CAMRA's Good Beer Guide, renamed it the Plum Pudding when they bought it from Greene King in 2013; Plum Pudding being another name for the Oxfordshire Sandy and Black pig. Two regular beers are OG from LoveBeer (the brewery is only just down the road) and Abingdon Bridge from Abingdon's Loose Cannon Brewery.

Defibrillator available outside to the left of the entrance.
