Some Cambridge friends, who we had offered to take out to dinner, chose this, so we arrived with no preconceptions. It is in a VERY "backstreet" position, with parking several hundred yards distant. The restaurant used to be a shop knocked together with a terrace house, opposite what used (years ago) to be a builders yard. Springy wooden floors shook the place a little as people walked about, especially when a very large gentleman dining nearby walked by the table.
The menu (bound in wooden boards) was fairly full, with the average starter being about £8.00 and the average main course about £15.00. There was a good choice of things and veggies were fairly well served by it. We found the food good, on the whole, prices typical for Cambridge, but a trifle expensive for the rest of the country (outside London). My only real reservation had to to with the wine: I ordered a glass of Malbec (driving, I didn't want to have any more than one glass). I suspect that the bottle had been open for some time, as I would expect an £8.45 glass of wine to have more aroma and savour than that glass had.
Desserts were appreciated and were c. £6.00 per person.
There was no opportunity given to add a tip to the bill in paying by card: it had to be what cash we could scrape together at the table.
It was pleasant enough, but I am not sure whether I shall ever be back; though the friends who suggested it tried to press an advertising card for the restaurant on me, I left it on the plate.
Service was decent and the place had a good atmosphere.
