I visited this place just prior to Christmas and even though this is a great place I was expecting a drop in standards given the busy time of year . However the crown came good and surpassed my expectations , the food atmosphere and service were all excellent . I thoroughly enjoyed the food and left feeling very content

Brilliant pub, food is excellent and puddings are amazing. Just wish the bar staff would learn to pull a proper pint instead of an inch off the top of the glass!

We regularly eat here with family and are always extremely pleased with the food and service. The pub is decorated tastefully, yet keeping a traditional feel inside and out. The staff are very friendly, helpful and efficient. There is a lot of choice on the menu, and the food has always been served quickly, hot and well presented. I can... More

We went to have a meal with friends we had not seen for some time. The meal was ok had worse had better, but what was most annoying was the way the bill was put on the table although we had not asked for it and 5 minutes later we were asked how we wanted to pay. Had the impression... More

Fantastic meal, probably best Christmas day lunch meal out in the last 5 years in Cambridge. Staff were excellent, not rushed at all and the food was delicious. Couldn't ask for better.

the food was very good except for the vegetables. I prefer well cooked vegetables! The service was excellent and the restaurant was clean and spacious. Altogether a delightful experience which I would like to repeat.

I really liked the way the service works here. Larger parties are served their courses at the same time, none of this waiting around with food getting cold. It's efficient, polite and works with a nice attention to detail. Unusual in a pub restaurant setting. They deserve five stars. The food, on the other hand, is a bit weary looking.... More

We were part of a party of 30+ and found the tables laid out and looking very nice. The room used was crowded and the fire exits had a partially clear route. However, the service and food was excellent and plentiful although the delivery was reasonable. The staff were very friendly and we understand that this is a very popular... More

The Old Crown is exceptional, the staff are on the ball (Margaret is a sweetie) all project the image "I love my job here". The food what's to say? shall I mention the real whitebait, the various fish on offer, or the slow roast free range belly of pork, then the wonderful dessert selection. Great service Fine Food who can... More
