Likes:
Evening meals and breakfast were excellent.
Dislikes:
Room 3 was rather dark and stuffy in the evenings - a bit claustrophobic. More lighting would certainly help and it was difficult to watch the television comfortably due to its position high up.

Likes:
Food was excellent, really enjoyed chatting to Georgia. All the other staff were friendly and helpful.
Dislikes:
The room could perhaps do with an update. The wet room had cracked dirty tiles on the floor and it could do with better ventilation as it was a bit musty.

Likes:
The location ideally suited the reasons for our visit. The John Barleycorn is a quaint, quiet country pub with a lovely atmosphere drawing on its historic connections with the Battle of Britain.
Dislikes:
Our room was in need of some TLC, including new bed linen & toilet seat. The bath/shower was showing its age & whilst everything worked, updating would make the room a pleasure to stay in.

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
