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!

It's amazing that they can put out that food from such a tiny kitchen. My favorite is the pork chop, It's a double chop and always cooked perfectly. They put some tasty crispy stuff on the top (maybe turnip?). Just about everything I've tried here has been excellent. The authentic fish and chips come wrapped in newspaper and is delish.... More

Let's start off by explaining that this place is small compared to the other Irish pubs in the area. So I suggest going at 9:30 (they serve food till 10:00 last I checked) the earliest to check out the Irish Jam if you also want a chance at a seat. The food is solid and beer reasonably priced. The Druid... More

My buddies and I went to the Druid after a Saturday night at Fenway. The waiter told us that although the brunch menu was what was offered, the whole menu was available if we had a little extra time to wait. I thought that was nice of him. We all ordered off the brunch menu anyways, most of us choosing... More
