Located in Whittlesford, The Tickell Arms is a great country pub that also welcomes your pooch. Sit by the roaring fire or out in the airy conservatory while enjoying French-inspired dishes, fine wine and real ales.

The Three Horseshoes

Located three miles out of Cambridge centre, this charming, thatched-roof pub is the perfect anecdote for a Sunday afternoon. Find roaring fires, a large beer garden, original features, and an award-winning menu that includes hearty British dishes.

The Alex parades under a banner of Burgers, Brews and Banter, which is more than enough to get us through the door. Once inside it's all about delicious patties, with these homemade meaty treats ranging from between £7 and £9 a piece. There's a top drawer Sunday Roast at the weekends, and a lovely choice of locally brewed ciders, ales and craft beers to contemplate at the same time.

The Anchor is a riverside retreat perched right next to the beautiful Cam where you can revel in alfresco drinking and dining all day long. Satisfying a traditional pub physique, this boozer oozes charm and comfort with a menu of locally sourced foods where you'll find game, meats and fish all on the menu and the bar stocks more than it's own weight in craft beers and ales.
