Stayed here with Franke the night before our pleasure flight at Duxford. Easy to find and park, staff were charming on arrival and at 6PM the bar was buzzy. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable, no old world charm as I had hoped but perfectly fine. The bar was very busy when we went to eat (book if a Friday or Saturday - but apparently if you stay they will reserve for you), might I recommend a pint of Brimstone or Ghastly Ghoul ales, probably Hallowe'en specials. Service was examplary, friendly, charming and efficient. I opted for the tian of crab to start and she the giant mizzed meze. Both very good. My hake special was absolutely superb. My date's steak was well done (as she instructed) which I found pointless but she liked it. The chips were brilliant too. Washed down with a fine Rioja and some other red and a couple of liqueurs and it cam eto just over £100 which I though was pretty good all in all. Breakfast was a great too, massive fry for me with a superb balck pudding and lashings of really good coffee.
