Its a great place to go for something to eat - friends , family or business, part of the well known Punch taverns chain - one problem is the kitchen keels over at lunchtimes and can be a bit slow to get stuff out - so if your in a time pressed situation you will be fretting and looking at... More

We have been here twice and eat in the bar area both times. The week and Sunday menus are amazing! I couldn't fault the food one bit! The beer is also kept very well. I would say the last visit they could have done with a few more staff on duty as there was a little wait for food and... More

Staying at nearby Hotel ... this is really worth the short walk. The pub itself is good enough, plenty of options on draught beer and some good wine by the glass. I went there on a wet Weds night, and the place was pretty full ... The menu at first glance looks limited, just a printed single card, and a... More

Nice environment and really good food for the price. So busy on Friday night that we were asked (nicely) to leave our table and we couldn't find anywhere else to sit!

Having eaten here on a number of occasions and been impressed, visited to celebrate my brother's birthday. The service was nothing like the usual friendly and helpful chatty approach, and it did seem that the need to operate what seemed to be overly complicated iphones had changed the approach from staff and kitchen.

Returning to a favourite restaurant in Peterborough it was great to share a family meal in convivial surroundings. Since my last visit the waiters have been issued with iPhones to take orders, ridiculous!
