Imaginative food in pretty pub with extensive wine list, four interesting beers, a bustling atmosphere and a smart restaurant

Many of our readers count this excellent pub as their favourite, and we can quite understand why they do as it's pretty much faultless in all aspects. Lucky Cambridgeshire. One feature we particularly like in a place that serves first class food is that they've sensibly kept the public bar (on the left) for drinking only: an open woodburning stove on a raised hearth, bar stools, wall seats and a carver, and steps leading down to more seating. Adnams Southwold, Brewsters Hophead and Oldershaw Grantham Stout on handpump, 22 wines by the glass mainly from the Languedoc-Roussillon region, 15 gins (one very local) and Cromwell cider (made in the village). Other bar rooms have white-painted or dark beams and lots of contemporary pale yellow and cream paintwork, church candles, artworks here and there, and a really attractive mix of old wooden dining chairs, settles and tables. In marked contrast, the stylishly rustic restaurant on the right (you must book to be sure of a table) is set for dining, with pale wooden floorboards and another woodburning stove. There are seats and tables among stone troughs and flowers on the terrace and in the neat garden, and pretty hanging baskets. Disabled access. This is a delightful village on the River Ouse. Sister pubs are the Crown & Punchbowl at Horningsea, Three Horseshoes in Madingley and Tickell Arms in Whittlesford (all in Cambridgeshire).

My dear friend offered to treat me to dinner for xmas and as she is from another county I suggested the cock as it is my local and you seemed to rate it highly I thought it was a pretty average meal with not good service to be honest No complimentary starter yet all the other tables were served one Starter pleasant but not exceptional. Steak well cooked but small! And the desert menu was so predictable we went without My chair arm was broken! £100 for a truly average meal. I was really embarrassed I had taken her here Any awards given to this pub are truly questionable. I emailed them and they didnt even bother to reply. Spend your money elsewhere. There are many better restaurants and pubs in cambridgeshire.
