The Red Cow Information


The property is found in the centre of the traditional English village of Chrishall. It is close to the tourist attractions in Cambridge, the Imperial War Museum of Duxford and Audley End House, as well as surrounded by beautiful countryside for walkers and cyclists. The main Inn has a bar area where dogs are welcome plus a more formal beamed restaurant for diners. There are two adjoining buildings housing our five guest rooms. The old barn, constructed around 1490, has a thatched roof and a timber frame. This has three rooms all with vaulted ceilings and plenty of character but with all the modern facilities you would expect from a 4* Inn. In the second building known as the old post office, there are two further rooms, a double or twin with accessible facilities for those with additional mobility needs and another double, both again with all the expected facilities. We provide refreshments, quality toiletries, WIFI, smart TVs, ironing board and a hair dryer in each room. ****We regret that we are unable to provide breakfast on a Monday morning as the pub is closed. This will be reflected in the price of Sunday Evening bookings**** ***NO BREAKFAST IS SERVED ON A MONDAY MORNING*** Opening Hours: Monday - Drinks 4-8pm - Restaurant CLOSED Tuesday - Drinks 4-9pm - Fish & Chip Night ONLY 5.30-8pm Wednesday - Drinks all day + Food 12-2pm /5.30-8pm Thursday - Drinks all day + Food 12-2pm /5.30-8pm Friday - Drinks 12pm till Late - Food 12-2pm /5.30–8.30pm Saturday - Drinks 12pm till Late - Food 12-2.30pm /5.30-8.30pm Sunday – Drinks from 12pm–7pm - Food 12-3.30pm (CLOSED on SUNDAY EVENING) ***Please also note that guests are responsible for any damage caused within the property during their stay, and they agree to pay any charges the owner incurs in order to rectify the damage.***
