We spent a nice afternoon in this village where you can feel like the time was stopped. Really good tea room with proper english tea and cakes and perfect garden for summer time where you can chat with friends and be sure you will lose count of time there.

I'm not a very relaxed person, but I must admit this is one of the better places I have visited for chilling out. The Tea Garden where the Neo-pagans hung out is tranquil beyond belier.

The reward is an experience that is quintessentially English and one which notable people like Virginia Wolf, Bertrand Russell, TS Elliott and Wittgenstein enjoyed in their day. Enjoy cream scones and tea, or a... More

Granchester is my favourite village, I grew up around here and visited Granchester often with my grandad. I remember the church clock getting stuck at 2.50. The village has a mill pond which is lovely.

Visited hotel late on a Saturday afternoon after walking thru the very delightful village. We loved the setting and ambience of the hotel but the service left a lot to be desired. Our Order was taken by two people , forgotten, then we were told, without apology, they were busy and had too many things to do. Not our problem.... More

We had our Wedding in Grantchester Church. It's a beautiful village with lovely orchards. We fell for the village instantly! The vicar (rev. Stuart Mews) couldn't help us enough. The local Green Man pub were happy to lay on a very reasonably priced breakfast for all of our guests the following morning too. All in all it's a great place... More
