This is our 2nd visit to this delightful pub. Just the same as our first visit everything was just perfect. The food, the service, the staff and the general ambience is first class. The food and drinks served at this pub are very reasonably priced indeed, esp the 3 course menu. All the staff appear to be happy and friendly,... More

This was an impromptu visit as we were travelling back north and were looking for somewhere in the Cambridge area. We called in to a very busy restaurant hoping for a table for two! We were shown to a table and swiftly given menus. The staff were friendly and obliging. We made our choices of traditional turkey dinners and didn't... More

Revisited The Old Crown today. The food gets better and better, and beautiful presentation! It is actually my local pub, 1 mile from home. We had the fish dishes, and the taste instantly transported me to Mediterranean fineness. We ate the most enormous and hot prawns I have ever tasted! We arrived at 1230, but should have booked as so... More

We were in a party of 11 on a busy Saturday lunchtime. The service was friendly prompt and efficient. All the mains were freshly cooked, looked appetising and tasted wonderful. The portions were very good but I would advise to save room for pudding ! The choice from the menu and the specials is extensive so need a return visit... More

We live reasonably near to the Old Crown but just recently visited for the first time. We had a lovely meal which suited all tastes - one of our party will eat only very traditional food (meat and two veg) while I am a veggie. A good impression on arrival as the restaurant is well presented with a light airy... More
