The Axe & Compass is a typical English Country Pub offering real ales, fine wines and freshly prepared quality food. There’s something for everyone here!

Dating back to the 15th century, this picturesque pub is located in the beautiful village of Hemingford Abbots. Situated just off the A14, 3 miles from St Ives, 6 miles from Huntingdon and 12 miles from Cambridge, we are perfectly placed for our locals, business people, tourists, walkers and cyclists. Wherever possible we try to source our food from local suppliers.

Our menu covers a wide variety and we will also try to cater for your dietary needs, so please let us know your requirements.

Throughout the week there is sure to be a special offer for you to try. See what we have currently on our offers page. You can even book in advance by using our online booking form.

We have a beautiful beer garden with an al-fresco dining area and children’s play area, all set against the backdrop of the village church spire.
