“Nice handy overnight stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2011

Spent an afternoon with some friends here at this nice old watering hole. After an impressive lunch and a few too many decided to check in for the night. All was fine comfy bed, clean bathroom and another great meal ; breakfast kept me going till supper. Staff a pleasure, good all round value, would revisit.

We went to play Golf at St.Neots and needed an overnight stop - my friend found the Eaton Oak on the Interenet and we were very impressed -the rooms were large and comfortable and everything spotless - the deal was for bed, breakfast and evening meal and for £60 per night each it was great value. The Staff were so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Dinner on the first night was all freshly prepared and breakfast again was cooked to order - well done - it is essentially a pub with rooms but what a find - we would definately stay there again if in the area.

Found The Eaton Oak while out for a drive on holiday at nearby Gratham Water. Had a wonderful meal, service and food excellent. Returned the following evening for a meal again as it was so good. Thoroughly recommend.

Arrived at the pub to be told they were waiting for staff and for us to wait to be showed to our room, eventually the chef escorted me to my room which had only one lamp working as the rest of the bulbs had blown. The room was freezing and the chef attempted to adjust the radiator thermostat which made little difference as the boiler had tripped out.
I eventually made two trips and managed to get a couple of bulbs so that we could see in our room which took 3 hours to warm up.
The beds were very uncomfortable and the pillows were lumpy and solid.
The wireless internet was not working and staff disinterested in helping.
The food there was great and some of the staff (including the chef) very good but sadly others (breakfast staff) were more interested in texting on their phones than dealing with my requests and serving tea and coffee took 15 minutes.
No one asked if we enjoy our stay nor did they come to check that we were OK, sadly we were very disappointed.
We would have stayed on a regular basis as the location was good but our experience has put us off though I would recommend the food it was great

This is a review of the restaurant only which we visited last night. The Oak seems to be under new management and the food we all had was of a good standard with plenty of it, staff were very friendly and the service was very good, we were allowed to take our time which made for a plesent evening. Would recommend for decent food at average prices in good surroundings, and as locals within walking distance,will definitly use again.
