Blue Ball ,Grantchester


We have just visitred Cambridge again, this time for a wedding. We stayed at the Blue Ball public house in the very pretty village of Grantchester,it's 3 miles outside Cambridge centre, right opposite the Meadows. JOhn and Karolyn are the hosts and i cannot speak highly enough of staying in this charming pub. The beer is excellent, no better than that, they are the font of all knowledge local, if you wish to experience a real english pub, then look no further. the locals are an extremely jolly bunch, in fact it is such a fun place. Book early cos they only have 2 rooms.

Tel 01223 840679.

you'll love it !!

It is a really good pub.....sort of "sister pub" to the Champion of the Thames which is the best trad pub in the city centre. Much the same flavour of place, very friendly, excellent beer, really nice people

Glad you enjoyed it
