“Visited in the afternoon, first pub on our heritage pub road trip. Medium to smallish two room pub with lots of details around the pub. Among those there is a list of previous landlords tracing them all the way back to 1729. Patrons seemed to be locals, very kind and willing to give some recommendations for pubs in Cambridge. Selections is a bit limited, only 4 casks out of 8 were on and three kegs. However quality of beer is immense, trying some of those beers in perfect shape a whole new experience. We had soup which was tasty. I'm glad we stopped here, worth the pilgrimage in my opinion.“

“This is quite simply the finest small country pub in Britain. In the centre of the village, on the B3186, off the A505 and not far from M11 junction 10. Find it! I first went there in 1974 and the changes since then have been so subtle I could not spot them. The perfectly kept cask ales - usually four, of which the world classic is Adnams Bitter - are all served direct from the barrel, on a double-stillage behind the bar. There are some bottles from the Adnams Innovation and Jack Brand ranges range too. The snug is ancient, dark-walled, wood-fired, candle-lit and chummy. The main bar is high-back settled, round a stove with some wider drinking space and a games room a the side. The fpod is absolute simplicity - locally baked bread, with perfectly cooked rare beef, smoked salmon, local ham, cheddar or stilton cheese sliced at the bar, And the legendary soup, which has never been known to runout and has its own complex rectangular chart showing where it is today.“

“This place is worth a visit for the interior, how pubs used to be! 3 beers on gravity from Adnams.“
