We had an excellent Sunday Lunch at The Old Crown, Girton yesterday. Advance booking advised, as a very popular venue. Plenty of choice on the menu and sensibly priced at £17 for a three course Sunday lunch. We chose the parsnip, celery and apple soup with chunky bread; also gravlax with salad leaves and mustard & dill dressing. Our choice... More

Had another great meal at the old crown, first Sunday lunch there and it was a great meal as normal. You must save room for deserts the best ever yum yum

We enjoyed Sunday lunch here. Lots of choice, 3 courses for £17 - good value and large portions. Roast potatoes were very smooth and not very roasted. But everyone happy with their meal. Lots of staff and rightly so as became full quickly. Very strangely a table had been set up in front of the disabled toilet, the people on... More

Four of us went for Sunday lunch at this pub. It was very, very busy but the service was still outstanding. The food was superb, good quality, nicely presented and very tasty. Extremely good value.

It was just a pity the staff tried to rush us through the meal, it was obvious that as soon as the customers have gone the staff can go home.... More

For fresh fish fans, this is the plaice to go. Rarely have I eaten such exquisitely prepared cod; the small fillets just fell apart as they should and the pieces of chorizo were a tasty addition. My wife´s sea bream was equally well prepared. The boiled carrots and broccoli, and sautéed courgettes were al dente and complemented the fish well.... More

We have been to this pub/restaurant a number of times and would always recommend it to discerning friends. All the food is good quality and good value for money - they specialise in fish dishes, which are worth trying. Meal sizes are big so you may struggle to manage 3 courses - an option is to share a starter or... More

Visited with 5 colleagues whilst we were working away in Cambridge. Service was friendly, even happy to tailor a meal for a colleague who suffered with allergies. Excellent food. I had sea bass and risotto, which was very tasty. Would definitely visit again if in the area :)

Our evening didn`t start off very well. We had booked a table in the conservatory for 8 people near a window. When the first people of our party arrived they were told we had not booked a table near a window so would have to sit in the middle of the conservatory. This was not accepted, so we opted for...
