This pub provides a real hub for local residents and visitors alike and was voted Cambridgeshire Community Pub of the Year 2016 by CAMRA.
Located less than half a mile from the A14 in the small village of Catworth (which is mentioned in the Domesday Book), the Racehorse is owned and run by self-confessed foodie Gordon Marks, who has a lifetime’s experience in the catering industry. The restaurant offers good home cooking as well as classic pub dishes made with locally sourced ingredients, such as beef from Tilbrook Farm (used to great effect in the pub’s ‘Tilbrook Burger’). The food is accompanied by a range of craft ales and fine wines.
The pub also has a coffee shop and deli selling award-winning artisan breads, speciality cheeses, jams, preserves and home-made cakes. The locals can buy their film tickets in advance from here when the village hall has a film showing.
When weather allows, one can dine on the outside terrace and enjoy the lovely views across the countryside. At the time of writing, the Racehorse is open seven days a week closing at 5pm on Sundays and booking is recommended. There is B&B accommodation with five double rooms.
