not what it is made out to be
Great location, just a small pub that thinks it is a gastro pub but isn't. Food marketed as fine however just average pub grub, house wine pretty awful too! Room cost £65, worth probably £35!

Cambridge Countryside
The Golden Boar is in a small village not too far from a main road. The landlord and staff were superb. They have very good food in their restaurant with plenty of variety. I used te hotel as a base for exploring the neighbouring area and the friendly staff helped greatly with suggestions. It took me 25 mins to get into Cambridge city centre and it is very close to Newmarket for the racing. I would thoroughly recommend staying here instead of a standard hotel chain. It is well worth the slightly longer commute time for the experience. My room was spotless and comfortable and everything worked , and I was able to come and go as I pleased. Excellent.
