5 High Street, Fen Ditton, CB5 8ST
Set on the outskirts of Cambridge in the charming village of Fen Ditton, Ancient Shepherds is a traditional pub and free house that’s just a stone’s throw from the picturesque River Cam, with B&B ensuite rooms available from June. Inside, you’ll find a cosy and welcoming space that’s also dog-friendly, with various nooks and crannies providing a range of seating areas perfect for groups and couples alike: enjoy a pint of beer or ale outside, or indulge in a tasty meal in the relaxed dining room. The menu at Ancient Shepherds offers everything you’d expect from a classic British pub, and dishes range from crispy beer-battered fish and chips to a minted lamb burger with tzatziki; pea, courgette, spinach and truffle risotto to succulent honey-roast ham with duck eggs and chips. The selection is complemented by an ever-changing list of daily specials and on Sundays the lunchtime roast draws guests from far and wide.
