Description: An eclectic Cambridge restaurant situated on the famous King Street in the heart of Cambridge. Modern British cuisine, utilising the freshest local ingredients by a team of talented chefs in the kitchen. We have recently undergone a massive redevelopment with a brand new restaurant, our food is now focused on the 5 tastes Sweet, Salty, Umami, Bitter, Sour. Come on an adventure with us and discover your palette. We also have our private dining room "The wineshop", which is available for your function. We have built a bar above the restaurant with a roof top terrace. Called the Liquor Loft! We focus on barrel aged cocktails and home-made liquors and cordials, paired with craft spirits and beers.

Chose this restaurant speculatively and had the set lunch with some wine. Attentive but not overbearing service and all three of us enjoyed our different choices. Wine was reasonably priced and excellent value. Would go there again

“Hugely disappointing”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

This restaurant only receives 71% on Tripadvisor which is not good but from my experience last Saturday lunch time no more than 50% would be a true reflection of everything. The food and cleanliness were poor. The service was adequate.
Why is it when people open restaurants in the UK they do not get proper training in how to run a proper restaurant? Why do the chefs or in this case cooks not get proper catering training? Go to France for a year and learn how it is done!

“Hugely disappointing”
Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

We went here a few weeks ago on a Wednesday evening and everything was perfect. So we took our friends here last night, having sung its praises. We sat outside first for a drink and no one served us. We moved back inside and ordered. All fine. Starters were delicious - scallops and ham hock. We ordered the jump stump red to go with our mains and that took 15 minutes to arrive. Two of us had the pork an that was lovely. The other two ordered sirloin steaks and we're ordered rare- they came welldone. We sent one back and it was returned blue. We ordered desserts and thy forgot about them. We asked for the bill and they had charged us for a wine we didn't have. Such a disappointment and will not go back. Go to the pint shop instead.
