I like the Beefeater, you can get a good meal for not too much money. The service is generally quick, sometimes better than other times. They make good long island iced teas too. The upstairs of the restaurant isn't as nice to be in as the downstairs, so if you get a choice, choose downstairs. From upstairs you can see... More

I love Beefeaters, whenever we stay at a Premier Inn we always hope there is a Beefeater in the bulding too. So as it was Father's Day we thought we'd go to our local Beefeater & try it out. Once we FINALLY got to our table (20minutes later than booked because no one was there to clean it) it was... More

Lovely food but absolutely diabolical service - waitress forgot our drink orders so we had to go to the bar and get our own drinks!! But still managed to charge us - restaurant wasn't even busy and they still can't keep up. Would never recommend anyone to go here, it's been terrible every time I've been.

Wide range of food to choose from. Ok service. Reasonable prices. Excellent chips. Not gourmet cuisine but you don't expect it from a Beefeater. We wanted a good meal at a decent price and that is what we got. Waitresses were overworked and we we were there just after it opened: not the fault of the waitress but of the... More

Went with a party of eight. Could not fault waitress as she was overworked and had too many stations to look after. Had to send food back as ribs were cold these were just reheated and not new dinner by then the rest of meal had gone cold and could not be bothered to return as service slow. No compensation...

I recently visited the Cambridge Beefeater and was very impressed, I’ll definitely be back! The restaurant itself is really nice and clean and I like the way it’s laid out so you don’t feel crowded when the restaurant is busy. The food here is absolutely amazing, so tasty and great value for money. It’s nicely presented and you get a... More

Very busy but they seated us in the bar. The food is very predictable - which I like. But the staff were lovely chatting to us and the children and recommending places for lunch the next day!

Never been to this Beefeater before, I have missed a good restaurant, Today 28/03/14 the wife and I planned to go to the Travellers Rest for lunch and we were treated to super fast service. The 2 starters and 2 main course meals were served just as we ordered, (Steak & Chicken) With attention & smiles from the staff, It... More

Service poor because we had to wait a long time for our drink & food order to be taken even though our server wasn't busy. Food was over cooked especially the Garlic Bread, which was rock hard. With so many restaurants in Cambridge I don't think we will be back.
