Welcome to the Hardwicke Arms Hotel

your getaway in the country

The Hardwicke Arms Hotel is set in the rural village of Arrington, 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.

“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.

The Hardwicke Arms Hotel Restaurant can cater for large groups (booking and pre ordering is recommended).

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

 Menus tailored to individual requirements upon request, please use the booking form to  book your table

What others say

Lovely little hotel in Cambridge

Myself my husband and kids recently attended a wedding at the south farm’s in the Cambridge countryside, we stayed over at The Hardwicke Arms Hotel just a few minutes drive away from the venue itself, it’s a beautiful little hotel in the little town of Arrington.

We stayed in the Penthouse Suite which can cater for a decent sized family with its two bedrooms, the food was incredible, the chef certainly knows how to make a plate of food, I had a sirloin steak which was absolutely perfectly done, my hubby had the calf liver dish and although I don’t eat calf liver I believe it was better than his mum made it, the kids had a burger each, we could easily have ordered one and shared it between them because its one of the biggest and nicest looking burgers I’ve seen in years! .. well done!
