From the moment we arrived we slipped in the ambiance of the place; comfortable, warm and welcoming. The food was exceptional and very reasonably priced. Staff very attentive when necessary but gave us our space when not. Thank you for the experience

We went here with our eight year old daughter and my in-laws. The immediate welcome was warm and friendly and there was an excellent selections of drinks. The menu had a definite fishy theme: fillet of mackerel followed by sea bass for me which was fantastic. Beautifully presented with complimentary water (both fizzy and still which was a nice touch).... More

Reading other reviews crticising the service is extremely surprising! The staff were ever so friendly , professional and attentive . The surroundings are perfect for a relaxed evening. This is the traditional English restaurant experience - cosy bar - being taken to your table in beautiful surroundings. Lots of little extra touches I expected exceptional quality and got it! I...

The food was well presented and of a high standard. The staff were very unwelcoming to the point of being rude. The decor needs a serious update. The staff and surroundings don't do the food justice.

Sorry but both front of staff house need to take a customer service course. Both were a just bit off rude and oddly condescending. Food was ok but the under delivered. The menu read well but actually the food was slightly disappointing. The decor both in the bar area and the restaurant area was outdated to say the least. Having... More

Had the most incredible meal. Every element of every dish was cooked to perfection, so many flavour combinations that worked perfectly. Even foods you don't like normally, you will like! The first couple of mouthfuls of each course were eaten in complete silence, rather than nodding your head in approval, you will shake your head in disbelief, stunned at how... More

We had a super lunch here. The food was delicious and the service outstanding. Sadly, they are closing at the end of June 2017, so go while you have the chance

Went for lunch with a friend. Seated promptly and offered menu and complimentary water - a good start. Then the bread arrived. We were both wondering 'where's the rest of it'. It appeared as if they sliced a piece in half and served it with a slab of butter. Better not to offer bread if you are only offering a... More

Oh dear! Sadly we must have visited when the chef and senior waiting staff were on holiday. The meal was a gift so it was especially disappointing. The menu was restrictive (4 mains) and the was food either overcooked or cold. Some of the staff were friendly, others not. Service was either obsequious or lacking completely. We mentioned the problems... More

Visited with friends for a lunchtime meal, the restaurant is in a lovely part of cambridge, staff friendly and a cracking 3 course meal (at lunch). I would return if in the area. Deffo worth a visit.
