THE DYKE'S END

 

 

Reach, in days gone by, had many pubs. Now only one remains - but it is a pub the village is rightly proud of.

Less than five miles from Angelsey Abbey, 15 minutes drive from Newmarket, 30 minutes drive from Cambridge, the Dyke's End Inn faces the Reach village green and sits at the end of the ancient Devil's Dyke earthwork. This defensive wall built in the 6th century is a popular hiking route and a historic background for a fine traditional pub with excellent food and ale.

Under new owners since 2012, the pub has a name for quality - and as a refuge from modern distractions. Tables are lit by candles, a fire burns in the hearth and the staff really do care about making the guests feel at home - they provide service that is second to none. It's a proper pub, with proper food - from pub favourites to gourmet provencale all with local ingredients - and proper beer.

The pub is also the heart of the village of Reach, whose villagers not long ago saved it from closure by buying it themselves, before selling it to the current owners, with a covenant which guarantees that should villagers so wish, it will remain a pub until at least the 22nd century.
