Crown Inn24 Newmarket Road
Friendly village community local. Pub sports include darts, pool and petanque, and the pub hosts a number of teams. The main bar area is light while the back room is cosy. Outside seating is available both at the front of the pub and in the landscaped rear garden. Simple pub fare, including locally produced pork pies, is available at all sessions with a more extensive menu at weekends. Family friendly, it also has a water bowl for its canine guests. The book club, film and music nights, as well as its two beer festivals, keep the Crown Inn at the heart of the community. It is first recorded as a pub in 1712 though parts of the building are earlier. Until recently owned by Greene King, the Crown became free of tie in January 2014. Mighty Oak Captain Bob is its regular ale and they have up to three others. The beer choice is always of interest and frequently includes a dark ale. Real ciders, direct from the box, are also available. Cambridge and District CAMRA Pub of the Year 2016.
