a warm welcome is assured from the owner mr bernard lee,the food quality is excellent and the location is ideal, for access to both park &ride for cambridge,and the war museum.The accomodation is very comfortable,with good facilities.We would have no reservations in recomending this inn as a place for a break.

Reviewed 10 February 2010

This establishment has been awarded 4 star so we were really expecting something nice. Baring in mind we went in February and the rooms are in a out building no heating had been put on and it was freezing. We went into the pub for a couple of hours hoping that after switching some heating on it would warm up, after 2 and a half hours we returned and the room was still freezing. I had on several layers and sat under the duvet and was still cold and there was a draft froma gap in the door. We decided that as the temperature was going to drop overnight we should go home as the room was too cold to stay in. We were offered no extra blankets or alternative method to heat the room. Aside of how cold it was the room was poorly lit (one light not working and little natural light) and boxy. Unfortunately I can not comment on the breakfast as we were unable to stay. I would not return and not recommend it.
