About Us


The Crown & Punchbowl is a thriving country pub and restaurant with delightful rooms nestled next to the church in the village of Horningsea, just 3 miles from the centre of Cambridge. Horningsea has the best of both worlds – it is idyllic and rural whilst being well connected to the Cambridge Science and Business Parks, just a 5 minute drive away via the A14. Our nine boutique guest rooms are well-placed for visiting Cambridge, Ely or the Newmarket Races.

This Grade II listed country pub was originally an old coaching inn constructed in the 17th century. It has been extended periodically but retains many of its traditional features including brick fireplaces and original timber beams.

The pub serves local real ales straight from the cask whilst the warm and cosy restaurant offers seasonal modern British food in relaxed surroundings. On Sunday lunchtimes we serve one of the best Sunday roasts in Cambridgeshire.

It’s within a lovely and easy cycle ride from Cambridge. See a video here!
