Good food, friendly service. We went with a friend who is a celiac and nothing was to much trouble to accommodate him. Been on numerous occasions previously and been impressed each time we visit.

This was the second time that we have visited this pub, the last time being 2 years ago with a large group. This time there were 9 people in our party. The bar has a good selection of real ales, beers and wine. There is an extensive menu including a list of specials that most of our party ate from.... More

I've lived in Cambridge for years and never heard of the Old Crown. How come? I can only imagine that the regulars keep it secret so it doesn't get overcrowded. I was really impressed by the interesting menu and the really excellent, speedy service. Lots of fish - fresh from Billingsgate I was told. Not faddy-foody, but interesting combinations and... More

A very full and happy customer, been very busy for a Saturday night, the service and food was excellent, the staff were very quick and polite, food was very hot and fresh. The only down side could do with a bigger choice of beer.

Have visited this pub many times and always enjoy a lunch here with my family. Recently visited for my grandfather's 96th birthday, we had secretly brought a cake and asked one of the waiters if they could bring it out at the end of the meal. They very kindly accepted, lit the candles and sung happy birthday when they brought... More

The Old Crown is a pub which has been converted into a Green King Restaurant. Having pre-booked, and visiting in a group of 14, we were given a table in the room at the rear of the restaurant. The food was good but not the best I have eaten in a pub. The impression gained was that many of the... More
