Firstly, at the time of writing, the website I found on the web is from the previous owner and the menu has changed significantly (including prices). Apparently they've requested the old website be taken down. Comments on the visit are: 2 out of 3 meals good, fish was poor. Slightly on the pricey side and chips portions small. Service very...

Good local pub. Monday night is a Newnham favourite as it is a 2 for 1 night on their food. Seating outside also available.

Unfortunately they had run out of goats cheese which rather limited the options for vegetarians, unless you wanted pizza which I didn't particuarly, although ended up with no other choice. The barman/waiter was extremely helpful and friendly and the pizza was pretty good too.

I'm a language teacher and my husband and I come here for a pint and pizza after the evening lessons. It's great to have a really good ale and a delicious pizza. We always have a great experience. Lovely pub!!

I have been there with my wife and 2 children, since the children fancied a pizza. It took 2 hours for the pizzas to arrive at the table, and the children were fast asleep! Very disappointing evening. Staff is very unprofessional, a complete loss of time! Never again.

I just love waiting 1 hour 30 mins for my food. Said nobody ever. A pub gets busy on a Friday night in Cambridge during term. So obviously that's why you have only one "chef" working. Even so, with fewer than ten tables in the entire establishment, and everyone's ordering basic stuff like pizza, it's actually amazing that they can... More

I would not class the pub as my local but I do drive approx 10 miles due to the great environment and food. The food is always on time and the main dish is pizza which they specialised in.

We have been coming to Cambridge for almost 2 years as part time students yet we had never eaten here. We went on a Monday where it is 2 for 1 on the home made pizzas. You can have either a pizza or Calzone. The place is busy which is hardly surprising but the food was fairly quick. We all... More

Dropped in for a quick round of drinks on way into Cambridge. Early Friday evening. Very friendly bar man. Clean tidy traditional pub. Decent choice of beers and wines. Food looked good.
