Good Hotel Guide Review

Under the shade of a leafy horse chestnut tree stands this pretty, thatch-roofed country inn. Locals and visitors come for chef/patron Marcus Lamb’s wholesome pub classics and hearty Sunday roasts, eaten in sunny weather on the front terrace or in the rear garden. Neighbouring villages and landmarks give the ‘well-equipped’ modern bedrooms their name. All are supplied with bottled water, fresh milk and a tea and coffee tray; Burghley and Wadenhoe, across the courtyard, have French windows that open on to a private garden. Peterborough and its Norman cathedral are within reach; closer by, there are countryside walks aplenty – ask for a packed lunch to keep you going. 8 miles SW of Peterborough.

Guest comments

'A pub not a hotel, but with sufficient good points that it ranks higher on my scoring system than many hotels I have used. There are rooms above the pub and a number in properly built rooms off of the rear car park. Wwe were pleased with our choice, well decorated and well equipped modern rooms – large double bed, hospitality tray with its’ own fridge with fresh milk, walk in shower plus large bath in the en-suite. If I were being super critical a couple more power points in the bedroom would not go amiss, but otherwise everything one could want, including a reliable Wi-Fi signal.The pub offers a choice of eating places – in the bar or associated but off-set bar room or a more formal restaurant, the latter being used for breakfast. The pub clearly attracts a large number of locals both to drink and eat; the rooms also have a loyal following judging by comments over breakfast with fellow guests… One ”bonus” – there is no mobile phone signal in the pub, so no shared conversations with people on their mobile phones or people clicking away whilst they eat – a clear benefit!
