Specials wheeled in on an old mirror which is rather quirky. Varied menu with lots of choice. Food presentation was excellent with good flavour and portion size. Pork belly was... More

My husband and I recently went for our wedding anniversary. This place has been highly recommended to us by a lot of people now and I can see why. The food was amazing, the cocktails were really good and it was all topped of with excellent service. Will definitely be going there again.

The atmosphere in the restaurant was good with low lighting. A pleasant experience - our friends enjoyed our choice of restaurant and all in all we had a lovely evening.

I took my partner and family here for a Birthday treat.Five out of six of us weren't very happy with the quality of the food considering it's cost.. We had to send food back that was missing half of the ingredient then we ended up with quick boiled veg instead of roasted. Won't be recommending this to anyone however great... More

We popped in for lunch during a day out. I had the Welsh rarebit, husband had the blue cheese sandwich. We had a side of chips. The food was lovely and we will definitely pop in again during a trip through Cambridgeshire.

We went for a wedding reception and was pleasantly surprised. Easy to miss on Bourn high street but once found it was a lovely place. Bride and Groom said the day had been excellently managed and organised despite poor weather. Bar staff were friendly and quick to serve with good couple of real ales and good selection of wines. We... More

Very poor. Undercooked chips. The fish was oily and garden peas were cold. The red wine was very good. Sweets not much better. This was our second visit with friends and it will be our last.
