In the chocolate-box village of Hemingford Abbots sits the Axe and Compass, a 15th-century English country pub where real ale, fine wine, and quality fare await. As soon as you set eyes on the thatched roof and pretty windows you’ll be drawn in to this quintessential pub.

The pub’s traditional character is echoed in the homemade food, which is served by a cheery team, who are always looking for new ideas and ingredients to keep the menu seasonal and exciting. Specials are presented on a wall-mounted chalkboard, and there’s a main menu offering mouth-watering starters like caramelised onion, aubergine and goat’s cheese tart, and confit chicken and duck spring roll with lime salsa. Tempting main course options might include pie of the day, beer-battered fish of the day or chargrilled rump steak. Vegetarians will be pleased with the woodland mushroom, onion and halloumi burger with chips, pickles and slaw. When it comes to dessert, you won’t be able to resist homemade treats such as sticky toffee pudding with butterscotch sauce and banoffee ice cream, and lemon meringue pie with berry sauce.

On sunnier days, take your plate and friendly dog outside to dine al fresco in the beautiful beer garden or on the large patio that overlooks the children’s play area. A weekly quiz night, live music and sports events shown on the TV are just a few more reasons to visit this charming venue.
