No nonsense food and good beer in old fashioned pub
At a glance
The same family has owned and operated this tiny and very traditional village pub for some 50 years. Unchanging and unmarred by gimmickry, the stone-tiled bars, replete with log fires, pine settles and old school benches, draw an eclectic clientele, from Cambridge dons to local farm workers. They all come for tip-top Adnams ale direct from the barrel, the friendly, honest atmosphere and straightforward pub dishes. Food is simple – at lunch, soup, sandwiches and Aga-baked potatoes. In the evening, just soup, toast and beef dripping, and cold platters. A selection of pâtes and hot sausage rolls are served at both lunch and in the evening. Street food is available on a Wednesday night. Village tradition is kept alive with time-honoured pub games – dominoes, table skittles, shove ha’penny and nine men’s Morris.
