“Dull and in need of updating”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

Judging by its' menu, the snug is more of a bar than a restaurant. At lunchtime more focus is needed on a short, fresh menu, removing the clutter of sticky paperwork offering an uninviting(at lunchtime anyway) . The interior is brown. Very brown. And rather sticky, possibly with the residues of the night before. Judging by the menu, this is a boil-in the bag or stick it in the microwave offer. I must confess to having visited twice this week, largely because it is the nearest joint to my workplace and both times I needed lunch in a hurry, once with a friend, once with a business colleague. Neither good; the food that is, the company was sparkling and witty. Fish and chips particularly dire, the small size sounded good for a girly at lunchtime, but was in fact a dried up tail of batter from the freezer. On both visits, spaced a week apart,the coffee machine was broken. A large screen at the end of the bar plays the news, complete with oft hysterically mistranslated subtitles for the deaf. The place was pretty empty. I'm sure you can get a decent cocktail in the evening, but by day I would head down Trumpington street to Browns for an altogether more vibrant atmosphere and better food.

“Average food, not too bad for value”
Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

Went there for brunch, my girlfriend ordered an egg benedict which was quite okay and i got a full breakfast. The sausages were horrible but the mushroom is great. Paid 11 pounds for both with a latte, 25% off with a student card. Not too bad for value
