The Three Hills is a charming dog-friendly country pub with seven luxury ensuite rooms, a two bedroom flat 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.
We 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 in 2021 we were named Highest Newcomer in the Top 50 gastropubs in the UK by the Estrella Damm Top50gastropubs team of industry experts. We have recently been voted as the top pub in Cambridgeshire by the National Pub and Bar Awards, and we won Best Boutique Stay in Cambridgeshire and Suffolk in the Muddy Stilettos Awards 2022. In October 2022 we were named Best Rural/Country Pub in the UK in the prestigious Great British Pub Awards, in addition to being a a finalist in the Best Pub with Garden category.
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.
Whether you are coming to The Three Hills for a quick drink, a romantic dinner, a family gathering or a special event you will always be welcomed by our super friendly professional team. We are thrilled that you have chosen The Three Hills as your destination pub, and we look forward to welcoming you.
