It's become an ongoing joke amongst my friends how awful the staff are. It's become almost funny now because we get to compare stories about how rude the staff are whenever we come in. It's my local pub. I'm frequently in there and yet EVERY time the service is atrocious. I don't know one person in Cambridge that's been there that doesn't have a story about the rude staff. There is even a note on the front page of their website that the staff don't boot people off tables ages before they need to be reserved. If there wasn't an element of truth in that then why is there enough people talking about it to warrant the front page mention? There's another review on this page that says the barman was reading a book and didn't acknowledge them. This same thing has happened to me at least three times. If you're thick skinned by all means go and enjoy the overheated pub with a cold atmosphere and staff who seem more unhappy than a baby seal being clubbed. Or if you want to be treated to a barman swearing lots because he has to get you a drink then head on down to marvel at misery. Honestly it's a fun, fun place that welcomes you with a cold shoulder and a big sigh. Foods good though.
