Staff are really friendly and helpful. Sunday lunch was plentiful and tasty. Good range of beers. Nice to be able to sit outside even if it is on some grass next to the car park. Would definitely come back if in the area.

Visited this place end of July and stayed overnight. Rooms basic but clean and had everything you needed. What we impressed with was the owners. It seemed like a family run place and they couldn't do enough for you to make your stay pleasant. Breakfast was in with price of room for us but we did notice price of breakfast... More

I went here for a few drinks and a meal with my friends. The staff were so friendly and helpful. I was incredibly impressed with their knowledge and skills. The owner should be very proud of them! Would definitely come back

Chose this hotel for an overnight stay travelling from Paisley to Margate. Ideal location for sightseeing Cambridge, staff made us very welcome and were helpful with any enquiries we had. Hotel was dated in a quant way and was spotlessly clean. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. T.V was rather small for size of room. Had dinner in the the hotel... More

I used to live in this pub when Dave Green owned it. We had a reunion tonight and we had some food. Well if you can call it that. The goulash was horrible and the veggie burger was solid. Not just over cooked but you could hammer nails in with it. Honestly we will never eat here again. The beer... More

I'll start with the location. They are near the botanical gardens (5 min walk), and consequently we spent a great deal of our time in Cambridge walking through the gardens and museums. Walk any direction from the Earl of Derby and you'll soon find a good assortment of restaurants, or eat in the bar! Breakfast is included and they offer... More

Did not stay here but did eat here. They do have rooms. Best price we saw for a full English breakfast in our short time in Cambridge. Generous portions, tasty food, pleasant surroundings and servers. After this breakfast at about $11.00 Canadian, you did not need lunch. Very classic neighbourhood pub, nothing fancy, but pleasant enough. Locals having a pint... More

In the tradition of a Public House, a bar downstairs and some rooms upstairs. My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights and it was just what we were hoping for. The staff are friendly and helpful and our room wasn't fancy but it was comfortable and clean. We had an ensuite shower. There was a TV, kettle, coffee... More
