About the Pub

A short walk from Ditton Meadows and the River Cam, the building dates from 1540 and originally comprised three cottages. What you see today isn't greatly changed from the last alterations in 1954 - an attractive, multi-roomed, low-ceilinged pub/restaurant. The small public bar at the front is for drinking and chatting. The Fold Bar, to the right, is for a drink or snack whilst the Lounge Bar, to the right, is for informal drinking and dining. Beyond this is the Shepherd's Kitchen dining area. Behind the rear carpark is an attractive beer garden.

Formerly Punch Taverns owned, it reopened, free of tie, in early summer 2017 after a refurbishment. It now offers ales from regional brewers Adnams, Woodfordes and Nene Valley on its three hand pumps. Craft keg beers and lagers are on its six taps. It has a good reputation for its food as well its beer. Longer term plans include B&B.
