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, it 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 Barleycorn 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!
