Friendly pub in rural village near Cambridge with strong community feel, great local food, garden, snug room and fresh, pretty bedrooms

Originally opened as an alehouse in 1847 this rural inn has been bought and refurbished with aplomb. It’s the only remaining pub in this tiny village of just over a hundred souls and doubles up as the village hall, the library and all-round buzzing hub. Food is taken seriously: classic British with a twist and sourced locally as much as possible – touchingly there is also a discount for the villagers. There’s a warm buzz inside with muddy-booted walkers, lycra-clad cyclists and families with children who can spill outside to the pretty garden on warm days – there's a pizza oven and barbecue in the garden for the summer months. Find a cosy spot by the roaring fire and choose a book from the library, eat in the light and airy Orangery overlooking the terrace.
