Over the years we have eaten here a couple of times and generally been underwhelmed as it feels old fashioned and the menu has been quite limiting. We live near the restaurant and look at the menu often but have found it too narrow and specialised so haven't been in for a while. The new menu is much more to... More

The restaurant is small and intimate and proved to be the perfect place to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. The food and wine were excellent and all very reasonably priced. Thanks to the staff for helping to make our evening very special.

The place is quite nice but not in line with the food at all. The latter in fact was decent but nothing more and ,needless to say, too expensive. In conclusion there are way better and way cheaper places in Cambridge.

I wanted a destination that would make my "foodie" partner feel special and spoilt,and this venue ticked the boxes.The 5 courses were all delicious . My main course of lamb was melt in the mouth good . A special mention must also be made of the Guinness bread . I need this recipe . The pudding was larger then expected... More

Lovely, intimate setting, in fact, it feels like you are coming into someone's front room which is part of its charm. You feel like you've been let in on a secret and the diners all speak in hushed tones. The owner is polite, welcoming and attentive, and, in fact all the staff are wonderful. The NZ Sav Blanc was perfectly... More

We arrived 15 mins after the time of our reservation due to bad traffic on a Saturday night and they had given our table away without any prior notice. They didn't even try to call us and admitted to not having made such an attempt when we arrived at the restaurant - this is far from being acceptable. The waiter... More

Call me old fashioned but I thought it was good manners to call if your going to be late? 25 minutes may I add! Maybe I could not get through to you as your telephone was a mobile and had no signal?! No concern???! The fact that I offered you a free meal (for 2!) with wine surely showed some... More

This is a very small restaurant with a small lobby off the street and then straight into the restaurant proper-has the feel of dinner in someones house. The service was good, food served promptly and well presented, but I would describe the fare as solid but not particularly adventurous. We chose the restaurant because we were staying close by and...

Food good and nicely presented. The service was pleasant. The pink sparkling wine was rather tasteless but the Albariño was better. The place is tiny which is fine but it feels very cramped and was rather stuffy and hot.

It's been many years since we visited 22 and of course it has changed hands, but wanting to take our 14yr old grandson somewhere special we opted for 22 after noting that the monthly menu still remained and we were glad to see, on arrival, that it still had the same layout inside. I like the cosiness of dining in... More

Very little to add to the glowing reports already written. A lovely, high quality but reasonably priced restaurant. Excellent atmosphere, character and service.
