The kids are almost ready to leave school for the summer break and, if you want to spend some quality time with the little ones around Cambridgeshire, we have all the information you will need.
Cambridge and its surrounding villages has its fair share of amazing and beautiful pubs but they’re not always kid friendly, particularly the ones which don’t serve food or don’t have children menus.
But there’s no need to worry, we have created a list for you of some of the best pubs in the city and its surrounding villages that are kid friendly and will be the perfect summer afternoon out with the family.

Inside The Milton Arms
This Hungry Horse pub has all the family favourites on the menu whether you’re after an all day breakfast, traditional burger or fish and chips feast! But this isn’t the best part. Outside, they have a brilliant play area for the little ones to really enjoy themselves.
Hartford Mill, Huntingdon

Hartford Mill at the Marina.
Another family-friendly pub and this time boasting its very own soft play area (Wacky Warehouse). Parents can relax and kids can climb around and wear themselves out.
The only downside is you’ll have to eventually venture into the soft play to tell them it’s time to go… good luck with that.
The Crown Inn, Linton
Located just outside Cambridge, this pub features a brasserie-style restaurant with that all special children’s menu. There are also different menus for lunch, Sunday lunch and dinner.
The pub uses local suppliers, and has been run by its current owners, Joel and Sam, for over 30 years. Linton Zoo is also nearby, making the pub an ideal stop for a family day out.
The Lion and Lamb, Milton
Situated just outside the city in Milton, is a 350-year-old village pub with a history of good food. Not only that, they strive to entertain the whole family. The children can enjoy the outside area providing the ultimate in entertainment with a Sunken Pirate Ship play area and bouncy castle! While the kids play, the adults can indulge their love for sports watching with a Guinness inside.
The Fox, Cambridge
The Fox is famous for its weekly events and deals. There’s free desserts every Tuesday and kids eat for just ?1 every Monday. With a great play area for kids, there’s no reason not to make a stop off here on your family pub crawl!
