A 16th-century pub, the Plough at Bolnhurst, near St Neots, has won the coveted Cask Marque, awarded by the Independent Cask Marque Trust, for excellent real ales.

The pub, run by a former chef and front-of-house manager from the Old Bridge Hotel, Huntingdon, secured the accolade for achieving the highest standards of cellar management and serving the finest pints.

Plough proprietors Jayne and Martin Lee and Michael Moscrop kept their cask ales at prime temperatures and their appearance, aroma and taste were first-rate, according to independent inspectors.

Michael said: "We are absolutely delighted that our attention to detail has been applauded in this way."

The Plough's real ales include locally-produced beers from the award-winning Potton Brewery.
