Large party of us enjoyed a meal here everyone said their mains were tasty and my gammon was beautifully cooked and a huge portion. Desserts were amazing and even though I have a sweet tooth I was beaten by the amount on my plate. I liked the fact one of the party having crumble got both ice cream and custard... More

We went here for dinner on Saturday evening were shown to our table very quickly and served drinks. The food was lovely and could not be faulted! Very large portions so 2 courses is always enough for me and my boyfriend. Deserts are amazing and highly recommended.

We had lunch with somw friends. What can I say, this pub tick all the boxes. Food, service, ambience and child friendly. It was by far the best pub I visited in Cambridge.

The food is lovely, it's great value with the sunday lunch menu: 1 course £9.95, 2 £15, 3 £17. I had 1 course, whilst others had 3, I was full up and the meal was delicious. I always seem to be a bit hit and miss with beef, but the beef here was lovely (not gristly and horrible), the creamed... More

We went for a lunchtime meal following a recommendation from friends and were not disappointed. The restaurant was pleasant and it was a reasonable wait for the food (expected when it is freshly cooked). Portions were very good and the food very tasty. Service was friendly. Desserts were also big portions and very nice. We would recommend a visit.

This was my first visit to the Old Crown and I know it won't be the last. I shared the Monday night special menu with a friend. £29 for two mains, a glass of wine and a (very large) shared dessert. We both had the salmon which was cooked to perfection with good vegetables and chips. There is an extensive... More

My first visit to The Old Crown tonight and the food was exceptional. All four of us had fabulous main courses and shared two delightful desserts. The service was good - efficient, polite but not intrusive. The pub is gorgeous and very clean. The only reason for not giving 5 stars was the noise! We were seated in the extension... More

We waited 50 minutes from sitting down to getting our evening meal. We had three children with us so this was far from ideal. There was another wait for dessert, despite my explaining that the kids needed their ice cream quickly so that we could get them home. The waiter must have little experience of children! The grandparents with us... More

I went with family for my birthday yesterday, having only been here once before, 4 years ago. Wow, it was excellent. The food is the best I have had for a long, long time, the restaurant itself is superbly decorated and lovely and bright, and the staff were polite and attentive - though not intrusive. And they put a candle... More
