Visited with work colleagues on a Friday night - very busy! We hadn't booked, but were lucky enough to snap up a table just as others were leaving. We didn't have to wait long for the pizzas, especially on such a busy night - we must have been luck and got our orders in before a few larger groups. Pizzas... More

I went here for my last supper in Cambridge on my American Spring break and had the Mac & Cheese with bacon with a red pepper and goat cheese side salad. The salad was fantastic with crisp greens, creamy goat cheese and tangy balsamic vinaigrette. The Mac and cheese with bacon were the ultimate comfort food, containing some nice chunks... More

Never thought that I would order a pizza at an English pub but their 2 for 1 deal was too good to pass up for lunch. The pizzas were simple and good and they brewed a great cup of Moroccan mint tea for me. (Really wanted an Earl Grey, but they don't carry that!)

Hey rh24, glad you enjoyed your visit! We pride ourselves on being a great pub with yummy homemade food. Moroccan mint tea is one of our favourites too, sorry about the Earl Grey, we will certainly look at stocking when we review our suppliers later in the year. Hope to see you again soon xx More

We ordered the mushroom pizza and Charlie Wells lager beer and appreciated it! The waitress could be more kindly, she just dropped the pizza on our table and leave it as fast as we could ask for napkins, dishes and cutlery to eat the pizza.

Edwin, you are a man of good taste! The Shroom is a mainstay on our menu, which we’ll be updating very soon! Swing by and try out some of the new pizzas, we’re very excited about them… As for the service, my apologies! Our staff work very hard but rarely leave the table without at least stopping to smile… We’d... More

Went there on a weekday with the place at moderate capacity. Despite this, there was a 30min to 1hr 30min wait time for food, which forced the manager to shut down food service early at 8:30pm. This forced our reserved party of 15 to go hungry. I was fortunate enough to order a pizza minutes before the unexpected cut off...... More

Plus 1 stuffed pepper. Pizza's were very good, and I am told the stuffed Pepper was good as well. Service was good as... More

Been here for pizzas and they are good but this time had the ham hock fricasse. Brilliant. I hope they don't take it off the menu. Long bar and good food. Recently renovated.

Description
Situated about a 20 min walk from the centre of town. A 'multi-aled' traditional house with excellent 'just what I need' pub food. An awesome atmosphere at night and a truly genuine clientele - (that's you!). A one of a kind family friendly pub that you're just going to love!
