Bustling little pub with good food and drinks choice and seats in riverside garden; charming bedrooms
The good pub guide review
In a tiny village, this country inn has been attractively modernised and is very much the community hub. It's a friendly place with a genuine welcome for all. Most customers head straight for the cosy beamed bar. Here you'll find chapel chairs and cushioned wall seats with scatter cushions around wooden tables, a woodburning stove, two or three changing ales on handpump from breweries such as Marston, Woodfordes and Wolf, as well as 15 wines by the glass. This leads into a cosy snug with sofas and armchairs, books on shelves, a TV and a second woodburner. The light and airy restaurant with its apex ceiling and skylight windows has wicker bull's heads and modern artwork on the walls above contemporary seats and tables. You can also dine outside on the expansive terrace and enjoy the landscaped garden that runs down to the little River Granta. Six pretty, well equipped bedrooms are located in the pub or in a separate annexe. The inn is named for the interesting Roman burial mounds nearby.
