Had chicken tikka starter and lamb husseini for the main course. Choice of Kingfisher or Cobra - settled for the former - nice pint. Food was excellent and... More

Good food, friendly, attentive service. Eating here added to our good impression of Cambridge. It was within walking distance of Leverton House, where we stayed. Excellent combination!
