Great stopover.
Stayed at the John Barleycorn prior to a visit to Duxford Airshow. Very friendly staff, excellent meals and a comfortable room. Would definitely stay there again if visiting the museum.
Rob, gbOther trip
The John Barleycorn Inn
We do not normally stay in pubs, but this was local to visit the IWM Duxford, and it clearly stated that the accommodation was in a separate building ,it was a wooden building with smallish rooms and a miniscule TV, the problem being the building was situated near the back door of the pub adjacent to the beer garden and car park, which were quiet noisy especially at closing time when people were leaving.The door to the room opened straight out on to this area although an attempt has been made to screen the area with a hedge but it does not really work.The staff seemed over helpful to the point where the cooked breakfast is extremely large and a request to leave a couple of items of our order t only resulted in getting alternative items and/or more quantities of other items than the menu stipulated.The small bathroom was well appointed and the maintenance and cleanliness of the room was excellent although maybe it is time to renew the mattress. Sorry not for us!
