Great decor and a warm welcome. Staff all very friendly and service very quick. Huge menu choice. Lovely chicken burgers but disappointed with my starter which was mini hash brown bites( from the freezer). Will return so I can chose a better starter next time!

Gastro Quality Food in a Beautiful Setting
If you’re looking for delicious, hearty, gastro pub food served in a traditional rustic setting, then you’ve come to the right place. Our little country pub, situated in the picturesque parish of Little Wilbraham, Cambridge has been serving famished farmers and thirsty villagers since the 16th century.

About the restaurant
Set in the picturesque village of Abbots Ripton with access to beautiful walks on the local estate, The Elm has everything you want from your perfect countryside pub; A glorious garden, a roaring fire, comfortable rooms, delicious food and a wide selection of drinks.

The Grade II-listed building was built, as an open hall, in the late 15th Century to offer hospitality to the drovers bringing cattle down from Scotland (along the Bullock Road) to the market at St.Ives. It was later altered with the insertion of a brick chimney in the early 17th century. The Fellowes family, that own and run the pub, came to the area around the same time the pub got its chimney...

Usual good meal and service, but meal options more limited than usual with no specials. Nothing on the main menu that attracted my wife but she was able to have a main-sized starter which she really enjoyed. Good food and service - also didn’t realise sparkling water is free 👍

The service was friendly and efficient. I chose the vegan wellington and didn't like the filling which had a solid texture. The tables were well spaced and we sat in a quiet location.

The Waggon & Horses, situated on Great North Road, dates back to the early 1700s when it was originally two cottages, but has held a licence since before 1799!

It’s a great and beautiful restaurant but a little expensive for a traditional cuban food. In general not bad for having a good time.

About the restaurant
A charming village pub nestled in the heart of Spaldwick village on the unspoiled greenbelt of Cambridgeshire. This traditional, local pub offers a fresh, seasonal menu coupled with local craft beverages, all of which can be enjoyed in our rustic, country setting. Our alfresco courtyard is the perfect oasis for any passing visitor or returning local. Take in the views of the rolling hills under our pergola or sit street side as you watch the world pass by, both are perfect with a drink in hand.

We came for a belated Father’s Day celebration meal. We ordered 4 of the small starter plates to share. Particularly Loved the Arancini & tempura veg. Our mains were al excellent. I had the trout which was perfectly cooked. Several ordered puddings & were all very happy. The pub was nicely busy but not noisy. Service was attentive & friendly. Overall we had a great time & will definitely be back.
