You know it's a real Irish Pub when the customer side of the bar has a brogue! Fish and Chips are outstanding! Perfect pour pints are cool and fresh.

Since moving to Cambridge, this pub has become our local. Great laid back service, nice selection of beers and awesome hearty food. What else can you ask for. My favorites are the ox tail soup and the beef stew. They are known for their fish and ships too

Wow, so sorry we had not been here before. I have never been to Ireland, but this would be how I would expect the pubs there to be. The staff was excellent and eager to assist in any way whether it was beer choices or food. It is crowded - and is a rather small pub. We were here on... More

This is a truly special spot. The menu is small but perfect. We had the veggie burgers which were hands down the best we have ever had. The beer selection was excellent too. Everyone that worked there was kind and accommodating. We felt right at home and will return again and again.

Good beer, welcoming staff and great food. We arrived at the Druid around seven pm on a Saturday evening. It was full, but we were met at the door by a man with a delightful brogue who told us he would have a table for us in 10-15 minutes. There were a couple of seats at the bar and four... More

Had an early dinner of fish and chips with a cream ale. We were early so there were plenty of seats.

This place has the best food I've had in a bar. The scallop salad was amazing; only politeness kept me from licking the plate. It's very crowded, however. Some tables can only be reached by pulling out other tables, which can make getting in and out a touch tricky. The server called my friend "lass," which made her very happy.... More

I'm in the Boston area for 3 weeks on business and my friend suggested I try this place out. She told me everyone who worked here had an Irish accent, and she was absolutely right! Half the customers do as well. I got the fish and chips and they were great, the only complaint is that its too much food!... More
