First time I have Latin food and specially Peruvian food in Cambridge, definitely will go again, the "Lomo Saltado" and the "Arroz con Mariscos" my favourites! And not only great food but also a relax space in the ground floor for drinks and dance!

Friendly staff. Nice location - a good place to play pool and darts. You would't spent much money in this pub and the beer is good.

I used to drink in here when it was the Globe years ago and I've been in a few times pre-refurb as the Emperor. The decor has improved since the refurb but the music certainly hasn't. Because they've decided to market it as a 'tapas'...More

We went for lunch in a larger group so ordered many of the dishes on the menu. All dishes were beautifully presented. All food was very good, not a dish we regretted ordering. The mussels and yucca were a favourite. Mussels were not chewy. The...More

This was my first visit since the refurbishment. The beer quality is good but the pub is very noisy! A wide range of ales and beer are served!

With a nice beer garden, great food and good ales, we had a fantastic evening. Staff was very friendly. It will definitely be our local pub this summer. :-)
