The Hardwicke Arms is set in the rural village of Arrington, just a few 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.
Sarah and “Team Hardwicke” look forward to meeting old friends and new, and providing you with exceptionally good food, a fine selection of wines and real ales, and comfortable en suite bedrooms.
