This lovely Grade II-listed 17th century inn reopened in 2017. In 2021, it came 22nd in the UK’s Top 50 Gastropubs Awards.

It has acquired a long list of loyal customers who love the beautifully restored pub, the new airy dining room and the cosy snug, complete with library.

Expect wood-burning stoves and underfloor heating in the winter and an attractive landscaped garden complete with outdoor kitchen and pizza oven in the summer. The six luxurious en-suite bedrooms (awarded five stars by the AA) have been lovingly decorated to provide a retreat 14 miles from Cambridge for those wanting some downtime in a rural idyll.

The short, well-thought-out menu champions local suppliers, follows the seasons and deserves its two AA Rosettes and Michelin Plate. Expect dishes such as heritage pumpkin and goats’ cheese tart; roast Moroccan rump of lamb; and glazed fig, pear and plum with homemade granola, honey and coconut sorbet. Children and dogs welcome. Closed Mondays and Tuesdays.
