Good Pub Guide Recommended

16th-c pub with friendly staff, interesting bar food, real ales and a big landscaped garden; comfortable bedrooms

In warm weather, there's plenty of seating outside this pink-washed inn: teak tables and chairs on one terrace, huge parasols on a second terrace by the porch and picnic-sets on grass. There's also a dovecote and nice views of the village church. Inside, the low-beamed bar has a relaxed, friendly atmosphere, oak chairs and tables on bare boards, two leather chesterfield sofas, an open fire and an old wall clock. You'll find their own-label Red & Black Ale (from the local Nethergate Brewery) plus Adnams Ghost Ship, Woodfordes Wherry and a guest such as Crafty Beers Sauvignon Blonde on handpump, 22 wines by the glass, 15 malt whiskies and first class service. An informal dining area has high-backed settles, and the smart restaurant (with oak rafters and traditional dry peg construction) is decorated with various pictures and assorted clocks. Well equipped, pretty bedrooms are in a separate flint and brick building. The Imperial War Museum at Duxford is close by. They also own the Black Bull in Balsham just up the road.
