I was snared by the invitation to have a cheeky pint before getting on the train, but was glad I came in. The welcome was warm and friendly, the service was very good and the food and beer were excellent, and reasonably priced for the location.

We went here with a bunch of people from work for lunch and then came back for some afternoon drinks.

The food was lovely, couldn't fault it really, but it didn't blow me away. It is also a fairly nice setting with the buzzing Cambridge offices in the background.

We got hold of the menus online - they were a little confusing, didn't distinguish between starters and mains clearly and so some people, including myself, ended up with a starter portion for their main lunch. Slightly picky, but the font used for the menus was incredibly difficult to read, considering it wasn't a handwritten job.

The staff were generally quite snappy and short with us, almost rude, and the service was pretty slow. Their attitude actually made us feel quite unwelcome.

Despite the complaints I have, I would happily come back here and sample more of what's on the menu and see how they get on.

Had dinner here on Wednesday evening starter was duck tempura--stunning but then came the lemon sole, pan fried in butter-the way all top chefs cook it. The best fish I have eaten for years!
Staff excellent, and really tasteful interior. One of the best meals I have had for some time and not expensive-- go there!! I will be back next week.
