Another find via trip adviser as I was on a business trip looking for good food with local flavor, The Druid was perfect. It is small and appears frequently packed but we had no problem getting a table. The food was certainly above average and the service was very good but, their ability to poor a proper pint is exceptional.... More

The Druid is a great find if you're looking for a small pub to enjoy a few pints and some really decent grub. Plus, with music sessions on Tuesday nights and Saturday afternoons, it's also a great place to go to hear some real Irish music. I loved that it was a low-key, simple place without any of that phoney,... More

This is a very busy pub serving good food and great beers. The turnaround is prompt so don't be put off if it's heaving however this isn't a place to linger for hours over your food, you'll be asked to vacate your seat if you've finished and people are waiting. There was live Irish music when we were there. The... More

We came here for a quick lunch on Labor Day. Most authentic English/Irish Pub I've seen. Fabulous Fish & Chips! The hamburgers and beefsteak tomato salad were delicious. One friendly and extremely efficient waitress who made the experience even more enjoyable. Place was PACKED but they made room for us in a table for 2 - squishing the 4 of... More

This was our third visit here. The food, especially the beef stew and fish and chips, were terrific. This is also a good drinking bar as one would expect. But the main reason for my very positive review is the incredibly friendly service. My family were treated like regular customers even though we live hours away. This is a truly... More

Found this place in Cambridge on a recent business trip and liked it. Staff was very friendly and the food was good. Real Irish behind the bar. Refreshing. They say the Tuesday night music is really good. Give it a try

The staff couldn't be more helpful and friendly. The fish and chips were absolutely perfect. And then of course there's the beer. This is great neighborhood bar. If you are anywhere near Inman Square in Cambridge, do yourself a favor and stop by for a pint.

So our part comprised my wife and i in our late forties our son 22 and my wifes mother ( too polite to say her age) and we all thought this was our best meal of our trip to the states to visit Boston and New York. Great food with a great atmosphere and friendly service. We used Trip Advisor... More

We visited 'The Druid' for a family dinner out, and as the title states, came away with mixed feelings. If you like a pub/bar, then this is the place for you. However, patrons looking for a family feel May want to take their business elsewhere. Some of our party were slightly uncomfortable with the low-key, pub-authentic atmosphere, but the food... More

When I dine at the Druid, I feel about as close to being in Ireland than at any other pub in the Boston area. Friendly service, great food and...no TV!
