My husband and I visited for lunch. It wasn't a planned visit, we just stumbled upon the place following visiting Shepreth Zoo. The food and service were all absolutely excellent in a very nice setting. I could not recommend it more!

Lovely setting out back with deck and conservatory overlooking small lake with ducks etc. Pleasant, attentive staff. Music a tad too loud and prices high. Starters were imaginative and very tasty. Partners chicken tagine very good (though transfered to tagine rather than cooked in it!)...More
