Just 10 miles from Cambridge the sleepy village of Duxford is probably best known for its airfield, a former RAF base now home to the Imperial War Museum. The John Barleycorn, located in the heart of the village predates the aerodrome by some 250 years, first opened as a coaching inn in 1660. Thatched roof, beams and a woodburning stove all combine to create the atmosphere of a quintessential English country pub and true to its heritage the pub offers a vast choice of real ales, a great selection of wines, fab pub food and guest rooms.
There is a beer garden, perfect for lazy summer days and balmy evenings, ample parking is available and it is just a short walk from Whittlesford Parkway rail station with regular service into Cambridge and London Liverpool Street.
Hospitality was outstanding; super food, great service and a lovely atmosphere… We’ll be back!
The John Barleycorn also offers accommodation, further details on their website
