    The Old Bridge Hotel

    We visit old friends in London every now and again and our favourite stop on the way home is The Old Bridge Hotel. It’s a homely and comfortable hotel in Huntingdon. This is also Oliver Cromwell’s birthplace as it happens. The Old Bridge Hotel has a good restaurant and genuinely welcoming, friendly and professional staff.

    Old Bridge Hotel Wine Shop

    Of course there is another attraction for us! It has a good wine shop with an enomatic machine. Have some fun tasting small measures from a good selection of wines. You just put money on a card and off you go to the machine to choose a wine to taste.

    Good Wine Selection

    Having the shop means they have a very fair pricing policy on wine in their restaurant and an excellent choice of wines by the glass. Dylan took the opportunity to taste Newton Johnson wines from South Africa. We stock some of their lines in our shop Pinot Noir and Chardonnay as well as the Albariño. Their wines are extremely well made and are often hailed as the best Burgundy style wines outside of Burgundy.

    A Good Sommelier Makes the Night

    The sommelier was great fun last night and very knowledgable. We ended our meal with him testing us on 3 dessert wines! A lightly fortified Muscat, a Tokaj and a New Zealand Pinot Gris. The Greywacke Pinot Gris was a winner and we shall add that to our Greywacke wine collection in the shop.

    There are some great offers, Sunday night deal is exceptional value. We paid £95 for our room and breakfast (also very good with top notch marmalade – very important!) It’s a good base to visit Cambridge.
