The Black Bull Inn, set in the heart of the tranquil historic village of Balsham, offers charming B&B and superb food and drink in a perfect location from which to explore Cambridgeshire.

Welcome to The Black Bull Inn, a privately owned free house pub restaurant with bed & breakfast accommodation that has resided at the heart of the tranquil historic village of Balsham, Cambridgeshire since the 16th Century. More recently it has been the focus of a stunning transformation, whilst remaining sensitive to many of its charming Grade II Listed features.

Five luxurious 4 star guest rooms provide guests with superior comfort before exploring Cambridge, Newmarket and the many delightful villages nearby. The Black Bull Inn attracts people from far and wide to this beautiful area on the Cambridge/Suffolk border and has naturally become a popular choice for those wishing to savour a treat of a weekend break or mid-week stay.

A beautiful new dining area has been lovingly restored from the listed barn, created with an oak-panelled, high-vaulted ceiling that is awash with natural light, making it the perfect setting to enjoy The Black Bull’s AA Rosette menu.The bar area has also been lightened and given a new lease of life under the guidance of our Norfolk interior designer, Annie Lambert.

Our pub restaurant menu has an AA rosette and is a mix of contemporary and traditional dishes. All our dishes are cooked to order using primarily fresh local produce. We have forty wines, with twelve by the glass, and four beers on the pumps (one permanent and three rotating guest ale).

Cambridge garden designer, Ian Shooter (with numerous Chelsea Flower Show medals to his name), has been integral in transforming the outside setting. We now have a tree-lined sandstone dining patio out front under parasols and the eaves of the thatched facade and a cosy south-facing beer garden at the back.

There is plenty of PARKING for our guests.
