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!

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. :-)
