Good food and family friendly service. The beer selection is also very good with some proper craft ales. Great for some food after a nice walk along the river.

The food at this Grantchester pub was really delicious. We went for the pork belly and sea bass and both dishes were terrific. It's also a really nice setting in which to sit. The only negative was how long the food took to arrive. But...More
