Went in with a group of 9 for a work lunch. It was busier than I expected inside which was a good sign. The menu has typical Brittish pub fare and I had the salmon burger and fries with curry dipping sauce. Both were good. Service was good: both quick and pleasant. I would go again.

Authentic Pub Style - a little too dark inside for my liking. The food is typical pub grub, but very well prepared.

We went on a Monday night and initially there were three of us, two more friends drifted in at separate times and our server was not flustered. Served drinks and took food orders. Then another friend joined us. No problems. Tables were moved and seating arranged so we could be comfortable. Loved her sense of humour and she kept us... More

Lacks a little spit and polish but still has great comfort and feels good. The service was excellent (Donna) and the food was as well. We liked the wide selection on the menu

This pub has sadly gone downhill over the years. When I last visited it was rather grubby inside, the food was below average quality, and service too.

Service has always been very good with friendly, laid back staff. Great beers on tap and delicious chicken wings. Patio is nice in the summer.

I was visiting from Scotland and took my family here cause I have been going for years when I visit Cambridge and the food was alway tasty for pub food, especially the burgers.
