Booked on the off chance and I was pleasantly surprised. Lovely country pub B+B in the heart of Historic Duxford. The Pub had an aviation theme which I loved as I was stopping there in order to attend the Flying Legends Air Show. Read less
Likes:
Food was excellent, staff also took the liberty of booking a table for me which was appreciated due to our late arrival. The breakfast was quality produce and very tasty, I could have eaten it twice!
Dislikes:
The room I stayed in was located near the beer garden and it was a little noisy as I had to have the window open because it was a warm and muggy summer night. Air conditioning would have been nice.
Response from The John Barleycorn Inn:
Thanks Guy, it is a lovely place to work and made better by the people who come here! Many thanks for your review.

"Disappointing"
The john Barleycorn has a fantastic history from the Battle of Britain, but has failed massively to cash in on it. Rooms - ok named after fighter pilots from the era, photo of the pilot - but no information about the man? Same in the bar, come on guys this place should be alive with spitfires and ww2 Battle of Britain history, this pub was used by polish fliers, not a photo, mention of them at all? Read less
Likes:
The food was excellent
Dislikes:
Disappointed at the lack of history on display, that's got to be a money spinner guys!
The bar area was not clean, table tops alarmingly filthy.
Only two beers on offer?
Outside area dirty.

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
