Friday evening pub grub

We stopped here on our way cruising down the canal. The location was great, a lovely garden area, the menu choice pretty good for a pub,some specials on offer, traditional items as well. I had the Cajun burger with avocado on a brioche bun, tasted good but a little messy. It came with fries and... read more

We dined at this hotel at 5.30pm on Friday night! What a lovely experience! We sat outside and surprisingly for a summer evening it wasn't too busy - in fact a perfect time to dine! The food was great, we had fish and chips and roast cod, new potatoes and rocket - both meals were superb, service was great only... More

For a long time i had been recommending this little spot to many friends and coming here with family. From its very opening following a long closure about10 - 13 years ago. It was a lovely pub and spot to have a nice drink and maybe a bite to eat. It has since changed hands several times and for a... More

We booked a table for four people. On arrival the place appeared to be deserted. A waiter came to us and took us to our table. To be fair the young chap was quite pleasant. We ordered drinks and starters/main courses. Drinks took ages to arrive at the table. Food took forever. On enquiring about when we might receive our... More

Very disappointed, five minutes after walking in and sitting down our order was taken and then it took over an hour for our food to come out and the restaurant was not busy that busy. Food wasn't great when it arrived either.

Perhaps someone should tell the chef here that halloumi marinaded in lemon and coriander should be just that. This was the description for the vegetarian fish and chips. The halloumi was coated in batter but without the addition of the aforementioned lemon and coriander, it was a little bland. Also a steak ordered medium rare arrived well done and another... More

The pub/restaurant really has a lovely situation, situated just a few miles outside the city of Cambridge, with the River Cam flowing past a large pub garden. That is the ideal place to sip your drinks on a warm and sunny Saturday evening in early June (yes, we had one of those) while the waiter takes your meal order and... More

One could opine that this pub is the victim of its own success, as it gets positively rammed with bodies come the summertime by default of its location - and of consequence, waiting times can be protracted when it comes to food. If you're filling in a dinner hour, best take two! If sitting in the sun with a G&T... More
