I ate here with my boyfriend, his father and his grandparents on a dreary Sunday afternoon in April. My boyfriend’s grandfather is very frail, and the staff were incredibly helpful and patient as he negotiated his walker round to our table.
The menu is incredibly extensive, and almost a bit overwhelming as you have to read the paper menu and look at the huge boards, too. But the choice and the price were both great: three of my party of 6 had the Sunday roast, which includes a huge plate of roast dinner followed by a pudding, all for £10.50.
Our drinks were brought promptly, and then our food followed fairly soon after. I chose the fishcakes, which were nice – but not actually all that fishy… The salad served with the main meals is a little lacking, but all in all, the food is incredibly hearty and generous. Everyone enjoyed their meal greatly, and it’s brilliant that you get such choice with the accompaniments and sides (Eg. Mash/chips/salad/rice.)
The puddings were definitely the highlight for me, though. Two of us indulged in a delightfully moist sticky toffee pudding, which was just the right size. My boyfriend wolfed down his Eton Mess, which was practically spilling over the edges of its sundae glass; his grandmother very much enjoyed the little light passionfruit torte, and the last two people in our party had the pavlova, which was very impressively presented and apparently very tasty indeed!
The whole bill for 6 people was impressively small – and the fact that the place was packed is probably a very good sign of its popularity. Since the staff were so lovely and the location so convenient, we shall definitely be back here next time we’re visiting the grandparents in Cambridge!
