Searching for places to eat around Huntingdon?
In Huntingdon there are the usual High Street places to eat like Pizza Express, the local curry house or a hotel. There are also several High Street pubs that serve food but in our opinion some of the best places to eat around Huntingdon are out of the town itself.
The photo above is taken near to the Old Mill at Brampton which is just passed Huntingdon train station on your way to Brampton, not only is this a great place to eat close to Huntingdon it is also on the River.
Driving the other way from Huntingdon, over the river bridge into Godmanchester you can turn right at the roundabout, follow the Causeway along the river then follow the road passed the butchers and end up here at The Exhibition.
Other places we’d recommend to eat around Huntingdon include The Pheasant at Keyston, owned by the same group that own The Bridge Hotel in Huntingdon but a thatched pub set in a very pretty village. You could also try The Bell at Stilton, half way up the A1 between Huntingdon & Peterborough.
There are a few pubs now in and around Huntingdon with open fires. They seem to have come back in fashion.
At The Exhibition in Godmanchester, 2 miles from Huntingdon we have an open fire as soon as the temperature drops and the nights draw in. It is a great focal point in our bar area.
The Old Bridge Hotel in Huntingdon often have their fire going as does The Mill at Brampton. There is a small fire in the bar at The Axe & Compass in Hemingford and The Pheasant out at Keyston has open fires in a beautiful old thatched pub.
