Hi, we’re The Kingfisher!

We were formerly known as The Barns Hotel but after some extensive flood damage, we closed and re-opened as The Kingfisher pub with rooms.

We’re home to 49 bedrooms and The Tithe Barn, a wedding and events venue.

Situated along the River Great Ouse, we have the best riverside terrace in town and superb food to match. 

Did we mention we’re dog-friendly too?!

See you soon 🫶
