About Us

The Three Hills is a charming dog-friendly country pub with six luxury ensuite rooms and an award winning restaurant located close to Cambridge and about an hour from London. This delightful 17th Century Grade II listed building is located in the heart of Bartlow, and is the only remaining pub and community facility in a small village of only 110 residents. Originally opened as an alehouse in 1847, The Three Hills is named after the three hills or Tumuli, ancient burial mounds originally part of a seven mound group which are considered to be the largest in Europe.

The current owners 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.

The six ensuite bedrooms, all dog-friendly - decorated in soft blues, greens and pinks, offer a quiet haven for anyone seeking to escape the bustle of life and wanting that perfect weekend retreat. The beautifully furnished two bedroom flat is the perfect choice for longer stays and for those wishing to self-cater. Our award winning kitchen holds 2 AA Rosettes and a Michelin Plate for great food, and we have recently been voted one of the top 50 gastropubs in the UK for 2021 by the Estrella Damm Top50gastropubs team of industry experts.  Our snug/library is the perfect haven for hiding out on a cold winter’s evening in front of the roaring log fire. Our sunlit Orangery restaurant offers a wonderful relaxed dining space and can be reserved for private events such as intimate weddings, hen parties or special birthdays. The extensive patio is covered, heated and beautifully lit, providing for romantic dining whatever the weather, and our beautifully landscaped garden is a haven for families and other groups wishing to dine in the open air during the warmer months.
