On a Sunday afternoon drive between Cambridge and Bury St Edmunds via Newmarket we found this awesome old place. We didnt eat here - only ever planned to stop for a drink - thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and the conversation with the very friendly and helpful management.

Go 3 or 4 times a year, sometimes with friends or family. Always great, superb food. Parents wont visit me unless it means a meal here!
