Two east Cambridgeshire pubs and one from Fenland have today been named as some of the best recommended venues in the UK.

The Pub Guide showcases around 2,000 pubs, inns and taverns across the country, with 550 selected as their 'Pick of the Pubs' as chosen by the AA's expert inspectors.

Those pubs to be shortlisted from the county include: The Anchor Inn at Sutton Gault, the White Pheasant in Fordham and the Dog in a Doublet in Thorney.

The three venues make up 10 representatives from Cambridgeshire alone in the AA's best-recommended pubs, which are assessed on food, drink, atmosphere and accommodation.
