Great food. Not your everyday Italian food. A wonderful meal. Service was excellent. Pretty pricey but worth it for a special dinner.

The restaurant was comfortable. Service was excellent. Meals x 3 were tasty and well presented but portion sizes for the cost, we thought were not value for money. Expensive meal and left still feeling hungry.

Stopped in looking for a pizza and was pleasantly suprised when viewed the menu. No pizza had but our two entrees and main course were delicious and something a bit different than your normal fare. Tasted as good as it looked.More

Description
A building that is Heritage listed and has been the social centre of Cambridge for over a hundred years. Firstly as the local Post office and now converted to a Brasserie Bar in true Edwardian Style. That Edwardian style is also a secret of the building as the two entrances have the Royal symbols of both King Edward the seventh and Edward the Eighth. Edward the eighth abdicated a year after the royal symbol was put over the door when the building was extended to include the PO Savings bank, telegraph and registry office. As this building is possibly the only building in the world to have both symbols and of the abdicated King we have extended this through to our glassware. A must visit place when coming to Cambridge
