Stayed overnight with our Trainee guide dog after attending a Dinner function. The staff were exetremely friendly and nothing was to much trouble. Room, although quite compact, was clean and comfortable, excellent bathroom and lovely bed. Breakfast was superb, perfectly cooked and "served with a smile" We will be back !

Good location not far off of the A14, nice village, good pub but the food was very disappointing. The menu is not extensive and quite expensive £12.95 for cottage which was a Saturday evening special! a small dish of vegetables between the two of us which hardly amounted to half a carrot each, tiny amount of cauliflower and a few...

We had the traditional Sunday lunches which were lovely. For pud the kids had ice creams, that were garnished with fresh raspberries and chocolate slice. A nice touch. Husband had...

We stayed for 2 nights. Extremely quiet at night, slept with window open both nights and only heard a sheep baa once on the first night. The restaurant served wonderful food and breakfast cooked from fresh, to order.

One night stay in village pub. Room comfortable and food lovely. All food sourced locally and staff couldn't be more friendly. Short 20 min drive past the American Cemetery to park and ride bus service. Parking in city not easy except in the evening. Swarming with tourist's but to be expected. Enjoy and then return to peace and quiet at...

This is a charming pub with warm comfortable rooms in a separate annexe in a picturesque area of Cambridgeshire very convenient for visiting Cambridge. I saw it first time whilst attending papworth hospital in a nearby village so it's very convenient if you are visiting papworth. The food was traditional English using first class produce was used and the lounge...

Stayed here for 1 night as was going to a wedding in the area, the staff are excellent, the food was brilliant and the accommodation was flawless. Breakfast in the morning was a great selection. Couldn't ask for more from a hotel, easily a 10/10!

Six of us had Sunday lunch here last weekend. The service was good, very friendly staff. The Sunday lunches were a good size with plenty of vegetables and perfect roast potatoes and desserts were big sized portions. Would definitely come back again.

10 family members, across 3 generations met for Sunday lunch today. They had put us in a very nice room to ourselves off the main restaurant, personal but not too secluded. Lovely atmosphere and decor. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Nice varied menu, however a camembert starter had to be sent back as it wasn't hot enough and melted. Main...
