This is one of my favorite places to go when visiting my aunt in England. The lighting is dim, the service is fast, and the food is delicious. I usually get some kind of meat pie and it never disappoints. It's a fun lively place...More

We've been here a few times. It's always overcrowded and a bit chaotic. Just be patient and a table will eventually open up! I prefer the seating near the RAF bar in the back. Great place to people watch out the window.

It’s a lovely pub with great history but if you haven’t had enough of tourists and want to be around them more then just head over to the eagle. Otherwise good food and good drinks.

Met friends for a drink before dinner, had to walk through a haze of smoke to get in. Place has great history but just too crowded to get comfortable.

Lively pub in the heart of Cambridge with historical interest and lots of tourists. Hearty food, good beer and friendly, if busy, staff. At peak times you may have to queue at the bar. The food is traditional English and well cooked 😋
