About the hotel

The larder is full, the wine cellar is well stocked, the log fire is lit. . .

all we need is you! The John Barleycorn was originally built in 1660 as a coaching house. Between 1844 and 1852 it was licensed under the sign of the Coach and Horses. At first it was known as a public house, though later a beer house. The existing name, The John Barleycorn, came into being between 1858 and 1861. During the Second World War it became a favourite watering hole for the brave young airmen of Douglas Bader's Duxford Wing. The John Barleycorn remains a very traditional English pub, serving some of the best kept ales in the country. It also enjoys an excellent reputation for serving the very best in genuine home prepared and cooked meals. We also provide accomidation for those you would like to rest after a meal. Ideally situated to discover East Anglia. Punting on the cam, racing at Newmarket, concerts at Audley End House or a winters walk to Granchester. Plus, we are only 20min from Stanstead Airport

Nice Pub, Fabulous Breakfast

The John Barleycorn is a pub in South Cambridgeshire, with a few rooms in a small add-on behind the pub.

The food (breakfast especially) is really good - not cheap, but very nicely done and tasty.

Staff were friendly and helpful, and the pub had a nice atmosphere on a sunny evening - friendly locals. Room was quite small and the lightning was very dark, but perfectly comfortable for just a night's sleep.
