Dinner with family. Short notice booking on Father's day but able to get a table. Good pub food menu - fish and chips were excellent with large portion of fish and lovely crispy batter. If I were to be picky I'd say the tartare sauce...More

This was just a quick visit for an early evening meal. I ordered the lobster and crab pot but it was off the menu and we only found out after we had paid for the meal. I swapped for a brie and crispy bacon sandwich....More

We booked a Fathers Day meal which was a set 3 course menu. We have had variable meals here in the past but decided the menu looked good so we'd give it another go. Our table was booked early evening for 6.30pm and we were...More

I've eaten here three times and I've had to wait for ages every time. It's a convenient location, but I always hate 'ending up at The Green Man'. I only give it two stars out of respect to the bar manager who pours crisp lager...More

Classic student beer garden - lots of tables and a bit scruffy but it's a great place to walk or cycle to near the east of Cambridge. This long narrow garden reaches down to Grantchester Meadows making the pub also accessible from Cambridge by punt....More

Nothing terrible about this place, it's just a fairly average pub which does food. Sadly, like most pubs / restaurants, that food is largely bought in. The one thing which stood out for me was the Chicken, Bacon & Avocado salad: OK the chicken was...More

This used to be a great pub for food but we were pretty disappointed with it after lunch there on Saturday. My chicken was over cooked (very tough /dry). My friend's salad had had ingredients swapped/missed out because they had run out of them. They...More
