"Great Stay - Bad Beds"
The JB has great staff, and a good selection of beverages. The Bed however in Room #4 was diabolically uncomfortable. It felt like there were springs trying to worktheir way into our backs. They squeaked and pinged all night. Definately not a comfortable nights rest. The Food at the JB was very well prepared - but certainly a little on the pricey side. Read less
Likes:
The Breakfasts were fantastic, the quaintness of the pub.
Dislikes:
Having out bed at the pub was a good thing - but there was a lot of noise from the pub when we wanted to sleep. The room was very stuffy, and with limited ventilation, it got musty very quickly.

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
