Enjoyed a delicious meal here last week- such good burgers- I'll be choosing here over Byron's or GBK in future, definitely worth the drive out of Cambridge. Very attentive service and great quality. Oh my goodness the brownie! Absolute must. Thank you very much!!

Random selection after overhearing a guy in the local gym - well worth the drive out of Cambridge. Remarkably good beef burger patty, imaginative toppings and great beers. Recommended for quality standard pub grub.
