Good Hotel Guide Review
Its name may derive from the Roman burial mounds nearby (the largest in Europe), but there’s nothing dispiriting about this 17th-century Grade II listed inn close to Cambridge. Immaculately modernised, the pub and restaurant are a family-friendly community hub. There are upgraded bar classics to be eaten, perhaps in a cosy spot next to the log-burner; more sophisticated dishes in the oak-beamed orangery; on the covered garden patio, alfresco treats from the outdoor chargrill and pizza oven. For overnight guests, rustic-chic bedrooms are equipped with a Roberts radio, a capsule coffee machine and fine toiletries; a snug library has settle-in sofas, and books to borrow. A circular walk leads to the ancient tumuli.
