The Hardwicke Arms Hotel, Arrington

The Hardwicke Arms is set in the rural village of Arrington, just a 7 miles north of Royston. Once a coaching inn, and later part of the Wimpole estate, the building dates back to the thirteenth century, although there is little remaining evidence of that time.

An on-going refurbishment programme has succeeded in bringing this listed building into the 21st century, whilst maintaining the character and beautiful old features.

Jayne  became manageress in Nov 2014, and working as head chef since 2011, still manages the kitchen and works with Eddie who has been here many years and is also part of the furniture.

“WE” the team look forward to meeting old friends and new, and providing you with exceptionally good food, a selection of wines and real ales, and comfortable en suite bedrooms.


We also cater for large groups (booking and pre ordering is recommended).

All occasions catered for, Birthdays, Weddings, Christenings corporate events and wakes.
