Positive Reviews

Friendly locals

This is the only pub in the village, so it's quite a busy place with plenty of patrons each night of the week. This makes for a very friendly atmosphere and gives you a true feeling of what it's like to drink in a local pub.

Lovely food

The home cooked meals are just like something your mum would serve with plenty on the plate and all of it tasty. The menu is also very reasonably priced and has great options for kids too. Guests say the breakfast is a good old fashioned hearty meal.

Good value for money

The rates charged at this place combined with the idyllic village setting make this place bargain. Guests are very happy that it is so affordable and say that it is a far better deal than some of the bigger places in nearby Ely or Peterborough.

Negative Reviews

Rough around the edges

This was probably a great place many years ago, but sadly some guests now feel that it has been left to ruin. There are more than a few maintenance issues throughout such as doors that don't close properly, and bathrooms that need updating.

Paper thin walls

The walls are so thin here that you can hear every word of your neighbours' conversations. This makes guests feels uncomfortable in the rooms and makes it difficult to get a good night's rest.

Not for those with dust allergies

This place is full of character, but sadly that character comes with a large helping of dust. The rooms are tidy enough, but there are too many areas in the building where you can see years of dust build up. If you have allergies, then beware and pack a mask.
