Little Black Book

Food & Drink

Ta Bouche, Cambridge

Cocktails, coffee, burgers and salads - what more do you need from this friendly and relaxed central Cambridge bar and restaurant?!

Bars

La Raza, Cambridge

La Raza is a cool and sophisticated cocktail and tapas bar in beautiful central Cambridge.

Bars

Cambridge Cookery

Cambridge Cookery is more than a cookery school - they offer a range of cooking courses to suit almost everyone and there's also a cool, Scandi-inspired cafe and bistro.

Cafés

ThePlough

The Plough, Great Chesterford

Muddy says: New owners have breathed new life into this pub on the Cambridgeshire/Essex border, with a welcoming locals' vibe where children, dogs and muddy boots are equally made at home.

Food & Drink

Sacrewell Farm

Muddy says: a sure-fire way to get 'em away from the TV, this beautiful farm with animals, activities and play barn is always a massive hit with kids, come rain or shine.

Activity Days

The Three Horseshoes

Muddy says: a thatched inn in the tiny hamlet of Madingley, this recently refurbished pub boasts excellent food and fires a plenty - ideal for wintry days.

Food & Drink

Johnsons of Old Hurst

Johnsons of Old Hurst

Muddy says: croc burger anyone? Where else can you find a farm shop with a huge range of food and drink, cafe, steak house, interiors shop, kids farm activities, and two ginormous crocodiles called Cuddles and Kisses? Only at Johnsons of Oldhurst - a totally unique experience.

Cafés

The Willow Tree Bourn

The Willow Tree

Muddy says: this gastropub, with its shabby chic vibe, is like no other tucked away in the village of Bourn with a tipi, secret meadow and enchanting garden. It needs to be experienced to be believed.

Food & Drink

The Barn, The Eltisley

The Eltisley

Muddy says: a kid and dog friendly gastro pub with a vintage vibe and an intriguing menu that's anything but boring. They have a private dining room that I'd hire for a bash and the outdoor shack that's perfect for a summer party.

Food & Drink

The Fitzwilliam Arms

The Fitzwilliam Arms at Marholm

Muddy says: a pretty thatched pub in the quaint village of Marholm just minutes from the bustle of Peterborough. A large pub, dogs are allowed in the bar area and the restaurant serves a range of pub classics.

Food & Drink

Orchard Tea Rooms, Grantchester, Cambridgeshire

Orchard Tea Garden

Muddy says: This old orchard provides one of the best summer spots to enjoy a pot of tea, a jam scone and cream or a glass of fizz reclining in a deck chair under an apple tree. A gentle stroll from Cambridge Mill Pond will bring you to the Orchard Tea Gardens in Grantchester.
