We liked the open conservatory on a warm summer evening and food and service were also excellent.

Overlooking a beautiful lily pad-covered pond, with al fresco patio seating and a stunning conservatory dining room, The Tickell Arms is the embodiment of charming British village pub tradition.

Modern British and European flavours feature throughout the Tickell Arms menu, made with seasonal locally sourced produce. Classic gourmet recipes include smoked haddock and leek fishcakes, and vegetarian delicacies such as squash and Taleggio dumplings with marjoram butter. There are also succulent dry-aged steaks, and gluten and dairy-free options too.

The wine selection at The Tickell Arms in Cambridge focuses on the Languedoc-Roussillon of France, and there are a range of cask ales also on tap at the bar. For dessert, diners can sample inventive treats like baked blueberry cheesecake with blueberry purée and prosecco sorbet.

With crackling fireplaces inside, and with quirky design touches like bowler hat lamps, The Tickell Arms boasts a lovely sense of whimsy. Whittlesford Parkway Rail Station is a 4-minute drive away.

    A great setting with all the doors open onto the garden and fountain. Wonderful starters and great mains. Definitely recommend.

    The experience was very good / excellent, although just a lunch and not an evening dinner the service and food were delivered to my wife and I in a relaxed yet professional manner. The starters were delicious with the memories of the specific tastes still clear in my mind today, when I eat out and its good i usually do a write up for TripAdvisor I expect you will see that as well. The Duck Parcel I cannot fault I should have had two but then I would have missed out on your Mackerel fillet which was itself so nice. Fine detail would have to be the the exquisite taste of the sweet and sour cucumber whilst eating the light crisp filo and succulent duck.
    Extra thanks to the chef or whoever cut the Rib-eye steak for me, it can be said the steak was cooked really exactly to medium rare for me and the size it was cut was so close to that of the chips I couldn't help but smile.
    The chocolate mouse when I broke into it would have after all the previous services destroyed me not to ooze! your mouse oozed exceptionally well again beautiful deep flavor which extra yum.
    Sorry I did not have a perfect sticky toffee pudding very much appreciated your staff and really impressed that they were checking toffee puds in the kitchen.
    You seem although only my first time visit to have an excellent chef and kitchen team providing first class enjoyable food but also a friendly and professional front of house team interfacing with the customers.
    I look forward to my next visit many thanks again.

    Not a good dining experience. One starter half contents missing, one miniscule. Complained and given free starter. Of three sweets which were trio of ice creams, two were wrong flavours, complained and again given two without charge. Quality of food good but pricey, problems seemed to be in service, either in the kitchen or serving staff.
