The Three Hills pub in Bartlow, near Linton, has added a Michelin Plate to its two AA Rosettes after less than a year of trading.

A Michelin Plate is a symbol that indicates “restaurants where the inspectors have discovered quality food”. It is a way to clarify that restaurants have quality food, wine and overall experience.

The Three Hills is a Grade II listed 17th century timber framed building in the heart of Bartlow.

Originally opened as an alehouse in 1847, it is the only remaining pub and community facility within the village.

The pub is named after the nearby three hills or Tumuli - ancient burial mounds originally part of a seven mound group. These mounds, the largest of which is 45ft high, are considered to be the largest in Europe, and thought to be Roman in origin.

Purchased by owners Chris and Sarah Field in December 2015 and lovingly and extensively refurbished, The Three Hills reopened its doors two years later in November 2017.

Chris Field said: “I am extremely pleased and proud of what we have achieved in the short period of time we have been open. The Three Hills pub has been the heart of Bartlow village since 1847, and we are so excited to be part of its transformation.

“The Three Hills has now been restored to its former position in the local community, and is fast regaining its former reputation as a friendly country pub, offering excellent food in tasteful modern surroundings.

“This recognition from The Michelin Guide is testament to the hard work and dedication of our talented team and to the support of our local community. We are truly delighted that Bartlow is now firmly on the map.”
