Set in the picturesque village of Abbots Ripton with access to beautiful walks on the local estate, The Elm has everything you want from your perfect countryside pub; A glorious garden, a roaring fire, comfortable rooms, delicious food and a wide selection of drinks.
The Grade II-listed building was built, as an open hall, in the late 15th Century to offer hospitality to the drovers bringing cattle down from Scotland (along the Bullock Road) to the market at St.Ives. It was later altered with the insertion of a brick chimney in the early 17th century. The Fellowes family, that own and run the pub, came to the area around the same time the pub got its chimney...

We are extremely proud to offer a seasonally driven menu and believe that local suppliers and our own produce provides the highest quality produce for this.
We work closely with local quality producers who are dedicated to their craft. Game is from our estate and what we can’t grow ourselves we source from local East Anglian farmers and supplement our own foraging with professionals from different regions to help us find interesting wild ingredients.
We offer a concise seasonal menu alongside regular pub ‘classics’.
Whisky and Wine
Like our menu, our wine list is concise and highly seasonal. Sourced entirely from Cambridge wine merchants.
However, our whisky list, whilst also seasonal, is anything but concise. A lovingly curated selection of over 150 whiskies are rotated quarterly from our rather larger selection in the cellar.
