“Smart gastropub” – twenty minutes drive from Cambridge – a seventeenth century building extensively refurbished in late 2017 and with six bedrooms: “good food, with nice combinations and they do a great – and I mean great! – Sunday lunch” (“the black treacle roasted beef is an especially delicious option”). A gripe? – “staff are pleasant and friendly” but a couple of reports suggest that “more training is needed”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

Have you eaten at The Three Hills, Bartlow?

Owner's description

The Three Hills Pub is a delightful 17th Century Grade II listed building located in the heart of Bartlow, approximately 14 miles from Cambridge and 7 miles from Haverhill. Originally opened as an alehouse in 1847, The Three Hills is the only remaining pub and community facility in a small village of only 110 residents. The pub got its name from three hills or Tumuli, ancient burial mounds originally part of a seven mound group which are considered to be the largest in Europe.


The Three Hills has seen many changes of ownership and has enjoyed periods of both huge success and dismal failure. Chris and Sarah Field bought the pub in December 2015, and following a lengthy planning approval process, finally got the green light to remove all the unattractive post war modern aspects of the building and begin the process of restoring the pub to its former glory as a traditional village pub whilst extending it to provide for new dining facilities and a beautiful pub garden which goes down to the river.


After less than a year of trading The Three Hills has added a Michelin Plate to its two AA Rosettes, Chris states “The recognition from The Michelin Guide is testament to the hard work and dedication of our talented team and to the support of our local community.”



Each of the four existing bedrooms has been lovingly refurbished and we have created two new bedrooms upstairs in the pub. Our kitchen has been completely refitted with the latest in cooking technology. Our new snug/library is the perfect haven for hiding out on a cold winter’s evening in front of the roaring log fire. A brand new orangery provides the much needed dining space and can be reserved for private parties. An extensive patio and beautifully landscaped garden completes the refurbishment and provides for wonderful outdoor dining during the warmer months.

"Exceptional lunch in a lovely setting. The shortish lunch menu spans the gamut from burgers to – oh, what to pick out? – how about the banana blossom pancakes; Peking duck-style pancakes with banana blossom instead of duck, with a wonderful subtle but tasty hoisin sauce (presumably homemade). 2 of our party had the sea bream, reporting it excellent and the accompanying clams "the best I've had". Same for the chicken wings. This place has the knack of turning pot-boilers in to something special, and finding unusual combinations that work, and work very well. Staff delightful and know what they're doing. My only gripe is the 45 minutes or thereabouts we waited for the food to arrive - although we were a party of 8 and when it did arrive it was piping hot."
