We sat upstairs, in a cosy room with a view of (part of) Market square. The service was good. Food was good as well, I had potted mutton as starter, which was well cooked and perfectly seasoned with a taste of cumin and sumack. As main I had pork belly and my partner lamb shoulder. The taste was good but the portion was small without appropriate side (we had to order them separately). The desert was for me the disappointing part of the dinner: I ordered the summer pudding, a red-coloured pudding filled with summer berries. Unfortunately, the pudding was really tasteless and the small dollop of clotted cream didn't help at all. the other guests had a battenberg, which looked colorless and my partner had a mediocre icecream, Overall, the experience was good but we would have aimed at a better finale.

Great pub. The beer is first class. Food is good. Just a top pub. They have done a fantastic job with this place. It can get busy, but that's because it is so good.

A beer shop with plenty of variety for beer lovers, with a dining room as well. The upstairs dining room is spacious - you won't get noisy crowds or waitors squeezing between tables here. I've been there on 2 occasions, and the menu chenged from one to the next. The food was good. Portions were small (particularly second time round). The deserts are quite nice. The atmosphere is relaxed and pleasant.

Great for a Friday night drink that drifts into dinner… the food is amongst the best in Cambridge. Try the pork belly. It is perfectly cooked and presented. The atmosphere is great - it has a maze of rooms both up and downstairs and a garden area and all the spaces feel intimate and friendly. The service was excellent - professional but relaxed.
