The Falcon Tavern
The Falcon is a 16th century former coaching inn in the heart of Huntingdon, located just across the square from the Oliver Cromwell Museum. The pub is believed to have been used by Cromwell himself as his Civil War headquarters. It has been restored with many of the original features left intact.
The Falcon is a CAMRA-award-winning pub that keeps a mind-boggling 18 real ales, 10 real ciders and 30 fruit wines and meads!
There is a good selection of pub grub on offer, including “Brampton Pies” and an impressive 16 different sausages.
This pub is also home to a “Victorian” tea room serving light bites, sandwiches, cakes and a wide selection of teas. They offer an afternoon cream tea, too.
Something for everyone.
