Popular pub in a peaceful riverside village

At a glance

Bar menu
Dog friendly

A short walk from the River Cam, Ronan McLister bought the freehold of the Ancient Shepherds in May 2017. Three miles from Cambridge, this heavily beamed pub was built as three cottages in 1540 and named after the Loyal and Ancient Order of Shepherds that once met here. Now a free house, the choice of ales rotates but might include beers from Woodfordes or Nene Valley. The menu offers an extensive range of pub classics like fish and chips; bangers and mash; homemade burgers or a pie of the day, alongside dishes like beef carbonnade and vegetable lasagne.
