Chimneys of mellow brick pierce the thick thatch of this cute village inn outside Cambridge. Between the main building and the beer garden, a conservatory restaurant bathes in dappled light cast by the mature trees that edge this plot in one of the county's most charming villages. With beers from the likes of Adnams and 17 wines by the glass, the bar attracts a good following. The food emerging from the kitchen takes the treat to another level again. A starter of fettuccine with wild mushrooms and Parmesan might lead on to roast partridge with Jerusalem artichoke purée, wild mushrooms and caramelised shallots. Menus change seasonally; children's portions are available.
