user reviews of the Ancient Shepherds, Fen Ditton

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Traditional pub that nowadays must make most of its money from the adjacent restaurant.
There's a very small bar area and a plush adjacent lounge for diners that you can sit in...but I have seen drinkers getting chased out of the lounge by the staff to make space at busy times.
In the centre of a posh Cambridge-suburb village, so always a few locals proping up the bar.
2 or 3 ales from a pretty standard range...e.g. GK IPA, London Pride, Adnams. Acceptable nick but nothing outstanding, average prices for the area. Neither friendly nor unfriendly atmosphere.
In short: worth a pint if walking by but not a drinkers' pub. That's a shame because there are no other decent pubs in the area so if they made more of an effort to accomodate drinkers they'd definitely get more trade.

Very traditional pub, plush interior, good ales, excellent food both in the bar and the restaurant (but you must book). Not open all day.

Ancient Shepherds Pub.
Originally built as three cottages in 1540, the Ancient Shepherds is now a listed building that oozes character. Guest and house ales are always available, and the menu offers food to suit a range of tastes. Telephone: (01223) 293280.
