A fantastic pub. Always busy with a mix of people. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. Very good selection of cask and bottled ales.

What a gem, located down a side street in St Neot’s. Told it has been refreshed and was light and clean. Staff and customers friendly and had great fun. Beer selection so good, will make this a regular beer venue when in St Neot’s

This is a bit of a secret place. It's not on the high street and you have to know where it is. But it is worth a visit. It's low key, and the perfect place to unwind over a good beer and a chat. Yes...More
