Brampton Mill’s Stylish Refurbishment

We were lucky enough to get a sneak preview of the stunning new refurbished at Brampton Mill. Not only that, we also got to sample the new seasonal menu. It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it!

The refurbishment includes an extensive makeover of both the interior and exterior areas. The charm of the 500-year old pub has been retained with many of its original features, and of course, that eye-catching fully functioning mill wheel still takes pride of place. The new look is modern, stylish and contemporary, and has kept the same welcoming warmth, whether you’re visiting for a winter evening meal or a summer drink with friends.

Read on to see which dishes really impressed.

Pizza, Pots & Pints take over the Carpenters Arms

A couple of weeks ago we headed to the Carpenters Arms in Cambridge, which is now a buzzing hub for Pizza, Pots and Pints!
