In need of a deep clean
Carpets and shower room would benefit from a deep clean and the cracks in the walls a fill and paint. Otherwise a decent room to stay in whilst visiting family.

Stayed for 3 nights, the room was pleasant, warm and quiet, I didn't eat in the pub itself as I felt the atmosphere a little unwelcoming, however they do offer a good range of real ales!

Smart and tidy room with polite staff
Very nice stay, really warm welcome from pub staff. Neat, tidy, fairly modern and well kept room. I arrived fairly late and was too tired to sit in the pub for a drink but I'd have really liked to sit and have a drink as it looked super interesting.

Nice pub stay in a nice village
The accommodation was really nice, large room with a large shower ensuite. The carpet had quite a few mark's on it but apart from that it was nice and clean. The pub is nice and there's plenty of places to eat in Histon. Please note the pub doesn't do breakfast, but there are a dew places to get breakfast. We would definitely stay again, it's a nice place and a quaint village.
