Set among chocolate-box buildings with thatched roofs and glorious Cambridgeshire countryside, and opposite the village church, sits the independent Crown Inn. Originally a saddlery, this Grade II listed building boasts a modern country style complete with soft lighting, feature walls and wooden furniture. Mark and Daska’s ethos is to create a relaxed fine dining experience set amidst a blend of the traditional and modern. Personal service backed by a top chef and excellent food in an idyllic countryside setting makes for a remarkable experience.
If you’re in the mood for fantastic fare, look no further. The British menu showcases a variety of seasonal, homemade dishes that utilise superb local produce. Staff go the extra mile to deliver the likes of A Taste of Lamb paired with charred gem, crispy sweetbreads and courgettes with mint and fine capers, and Somersham pork collar, porcini mushrooms, garlic-roasted new potatoes and sage cream sauce. Your meal won’t be complete without something sweet – the homemade rhubarb, custard and gingerbread cheesecake with baked rhubarb is heavenly. All this is complemented by a hand-picked wine list and local real ale.
What really sets The Crown Inn apart is the sunny patio area and acre beer garden, which often sees a marquee pitched up for various events that take place during the year. The children’s play area gives a clue as to the family-friendly nature of this pub. Visit for yourself and you’ll understand why The Crown Inn is so popular.
