This lovely freehouse pub is idyllically tucked away in the beautiful village of Meldreth, only a short distance from Cambridge & very close to Royston. Ideally situated near the A10 and the M11 for easy access to London.Which means we get many visitors from far & wide who find their way to our popular pub. As well as being greatly supported by the local community. Thanks to the welcoming locals & friendly staff, this provides an enjoyable & relaxing atmosphere.As well as our bar, stocked with a wide range of Beers, Ales & Wines, we have an extremely popular dining room. We cater for all ages & groups, with a traditional pub menu & children’s menu, we also have a few picks on our specials board, which is regularly changed with lovely homemade dishes!Steeped in history, Meldreth is mentioned in 1086 as having 50 tenants living in the area and even by 1789 it had only rose to around 80, but 1801 there were 444 people recorded so it seems reasonable to assume that it was the early 19th century that the British Queen as a beerhouse opened it’s doors.The records show that the landlord as Nathan Driver on or around 1860, so we have over 150 years of history on this charming pub. With its oak beams and flag stone floors, The British Queen is a comfortable blend of old and new with a friendly, relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.We look forward to seeing you soon.
