“Water rip-off”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is a nice restaurant, but is spoiled by its rip-off mineral water scam. The staff - no doubt under instruction to do so - offer you still or fizzy water when you sit down. They don't tell you that "still water" is rip-off mineral water at £2.95 for not even a litre. If you want tap water you have to ask, it isn't offered.

It's a shame because the management's evident contempt for their customers in this respect mars what would otherwise be a nice place. This cheap gesture of theirs makes you realise that they don't really give a damn about their customers and just want to make more money however they can.

Hi,

We appreciate the time you took to write the review and sorry that your felt ripped off with being charge for mineral water.

In the uk it is common practice to have and be charged for bottled water as the tap water is not very nice. Our bottled water is especially sourced from a family owed supplier in San Cassiano - Italy and you will not be able to find it anywhere else in Cambridge. I have checked with all the other bars, restaurants and hotels along our street and happy to report back that charge the normal price for bottled water. Our competitors charge between £2.25 & £3.50 for 500ml bottled water, most of which are only from the uk.

I'm glad you found the service and food to a high quality at least
