Phoned ahead to confirm. When we arrived we were told that they were stopping the stay over as due to it being a grass area for parking, many people use it as a camp site! (All too familiar story) But as we were told on the phone we could stay, we stayed for two nights. They stopped advertising the stop over with the C&CC over 3 years ago. Great Pub, fantastic food and amazing location.

I called in yesterday and was told that they don't really allow stopovers anymore as it was all getting a bit too much . Its a shame as its such a lovely place to be . Apparently it was stopped over 3 years ago .

Superb location but we were disappointed to be told that EHU was no longer available to motorhome users. However, we had a pleasant stay, ate in the restaurant and woke up to a stunning view.

Excellent in every way, fabulous setting, beautiful views, good food and beer. We didn't require any services so site was free but water and hook are available, we just parked next to all the boats that where moored up as we planned to move on the following day. Will definitely use again.

Lovely location and great pub. It was a really wet weekend, but they assured us they could tow us off if we got stuck. Adjacent to Wicken Fen nature reserve so lots of bird life and long walks. Nice meal, around £14 per head. Live band (Friday night). We would definitely return.

We loved it so much we returned on our way home for a further 2 nights. The food was amazing, with plenty of variety to suit everyone. But make sure you leave room for the delicious puddings. Live music Friday evening but not too loud. Very friendly staff and landlord and landlady. We blended in with the locals. All very friendly. Water And chemical waste disposal available. An abundance of walks along the canals. This is what a pub stopover should be. Thank you very much.

Outstanding stopover and quiet too with a lovely view of the river right alongside the car park. Friendly natives and helpful staff at the bar serving good food at gastro prices (Quality to match) make this a stopover that I will definitely return to as it's well worth the travel to enjoy such a location. We were advised that they do NOT allow stopovers at weekends in summer but were happy to let us and one other camper van stop for the night. Pleasant area to walk or just sit out.

Long long drive down country roads and you start to wonder if you will ever get there, but when you do, it's like the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow! The scenery and setting by the canal is to die for. They don't advertise EHU for motorhomes, but if there's a free point not used by the moored boats, they will let you use it for £1.50 per day. Max stay 72 hours.

Big and popular restaurant (too grand for a pub really). Main course meals between £13 - £23 for a huge mixed grill. Live band playing great music, yet our motor home was far enough for the music to not be annoying.

Our water supply was a tad low and they let us use their tap to fill up (using our watering can). We emptied our grey water using our plastic tub, well away from the river. DON'T SPOIL THE ENVIRONMENT.

Lulled into relaxation by the sound of birds, ducks and some creature that sounds like a wounded bear.

Lovely Pub , Very Friendly owners and Staff, Food really good with Live Music, Electric was available but didn't use. Could be a problem if too many boats are also staying overnight. Lovely walks with Dog. Can choose multiple directions. Access roads to Pub is fair. Watch out for farm vehicles.

It should be noted that the Five Miles no longer caters for motorhome stopovers. You are welcome to turn up on spec and grab a space in the car park if you can, but they no longer book you or offer EHU, and certainly not in the summer months.
This is a real shame because it’s a lovely stopover and we had a great pitch on the riverbank a couple of years ago, but it seems they only cater for the boaty types these days.

Nice pub. Considering it really is miles from anywhere it is a large pub and very busy.

Food is good with large portions. There is wifi available but not very fast.

They have regular live music from an outdoor stage over the summer so be aware it may not be very quiet some nights!

The pub is right by the canal and electric is available for the boats which motorhomes can also use. You buy a card from the pub for £1.50 and credit it to the ehu point.
