Situated in the small hamlet of Stoke Doyle, just a mile and a half from the picturesque market town of Oundle, the Shuckburgh Arms, though a traditional pub, has a stylish new interior with a contemporary edge. The original fireplace, complete with stained glass window still remains, as do the exposed beams.

We have an extensive menu which combines the freshest seasonal ingredients, and all meat produce sourced locally where possible. The dining areas offer a relaxed, cosy and informal environment.

There is a choice of roasts on Sunday and children’s portions of most dishes are available.

Real Ales generally include the popular BSA (3.8%) or  NVB (4.0%) from the local Nene Valley Brewery in Oundle.  We also offer guest Ales from Osset Brewery in Yorkshire/St Austell in Cornwall and from the Conwy Valley in North Wales. Lagers on tap are Carlsberg, Italian Poretti and San Miguel plus various bottled lagers including Peroni and Corona.

The large family garden overlooks beautiful countryside. There is an adventure play area to amuse the children along with plenty of seating and a new decking area. The Alpacas in the field opposite are a big attraction and are always very inquisitive!

Our Bed and Breakfast accommodation has also been refurbished to a high standard. All with en-suite bathrooms, they are very comfortable and decorated with natural colours.

We are the only pub/restaurant in the tiny village and enjoy views over the countryside. St Rumbold’s Church is situated just a three minute walk down the road. Walks can be enjoyed around the area with many public footpaths.


We are situated 1.5 miles from the lovely market town of Oundle. Market day is on a Saturday plus there is a fabulous Farmers Market on the first Saturday of every month. 

Approx 15 miles from the centre of Peterborough and a 40 minute drive to Cambridge.

Please advise on booking of your time of arrival so we can ensure a smooth check in.
