“Very Friendly Inn”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2008

A pleasant place to stay about 20 mins drive outside Cambridge. The room was large enough though made smaller by too much large furniture. Linen and towels were fresh and clean. Food is good and plentiful.

There is a bus every half hour from outside the pub to Cambridge, or you can drive to the outskirts and Park n Ride. The pub is fairly quiet in the evening - no rowdy customers!

The best bit is the friendliness of the staff. Without exception, everyone went out of their way to be helpful and welcoming.

My Partner and I wanted to get away from it all for two days, so we decided to visit Cambridge. I did not want to stay in the city so I looked for a pub with accomodation just outside. I came across the Black Horse Motel In Swatthem Bulbeck which advertised as a friendly atmospheric pub with good food and a good selection of ales. We were not dissapointed. The room was small but quite adaquate for our needs. It was clean and serviced while we were out. The locals in the pub were friendly and the food was excellent. We paid £2 each for the park and ride in Cambridge and had a wonderful day out. A very relaxing weekend for us both and will go back again.
