Atmospheric old pub - the rear extension is in keeping but looks more modern. Very comfortable, friendly and attentive staff. Woodford's "Wherry" good, and popular. Food good and service excellent. The acoustics are a bit noisy and for a time the "hooray henrys" at the bar were a bit off-putting, but we enjoyed our evening and will go back.

A great looking pub which is just off the M11, south of Cambridge. The village of Hinxton is tranquil and the pub does not dissapoint.
It offers a cosy bar area, with a small but reasonable choice of real ale including Woodforde's Wherry and Nethergate Growler. There are also some great leather chairs you can sit in, a nice restaurant at the rear and a large, well kept beer garden to the rear if the weather invites a visit.
We tried the food, the ale pie was nice and reasonably plentiful, however the lamb was far too small and left too much 'space on the plate' and some of us left hungry, never a great thing.
I'll judge this however as a pub, and for that, and the friendliness of the staff, I'll give it a good mark.

Nice pub. Beer good (Woodforrde's Wherry) if a bit pricey.

Good pub and good overnight accommodation too. Food average in my book: mussels I had were small and chewy, the broth so salty I considered sending it back. Fiancee's pie nice, pudding not so nice. Ale good, Aspall's cider very nice. WW2 aeroplane pitcures on wall, cosy bar.
Full of egotistical uni types when I went, but that's better than it being full of chavs I suppose. Food could be better, beer v. good, accomodation v.good, service superb. 7/10

I've only visited once, but found the dining area to be spacious and comfortable -ideal for us, a couple with a young baby- no fear of annoying too many other people! The food was very good (a good range of specials and standard items - all served in perfect time and tasty. The service was excellent and everyone was very friendly and welcoming; the two servers were spot on in terms of their attention and genuinely had time for us. The beer was also very enjoyable; I didn't try all of them, of course, but the Adnams was well-kept and just the right "cellar" temperature. My only gripe would be that smokers filled the porch on a rainy night (a difficult problem, I know), which made the passage through unhealthy for us and our young son. But an enjoyablning experience - we shall certainly be back and would have no hesitation in recommending such a friendly pub.
