We visited for a work lunch but unfortunately several of the food items and drinks were unavailable. We ordered and then waited a long time for food and when it came some of it was very disappointing. The meat feast pizza could have been great...but as it was served we were told that they had cut the corner off as it was too burnt!! The other edges and a lot of the pepperoni were inedible, black and burnt to a crisp! My scotch egg would have been delicious but again was very over cooked with the egg yolk being rock hard. The chap that served us was a nice chap and as we had waited so long for the food and were already really over-running we just got on with it but sadly we would not go back and I absolutely would not reccomend to any other local companies as a business lunch venue!More

We booked a table before our family of three adults and two children, went to watch the football at Histon FC. on new Year's day 2022. The reviews we read and the website text paint a very different picture from the one we saw. The...outside areas are shambolic and delapidated, the so-called conservatory where we dined, had filthy window frames with damp mold and dead flies. The furniture was old fashioned and the biggest problem - many of the reasonable looking menu's items were not available. We made our orders from the limited menu and then saw the waitress running to the shop for supplies (bread buns for the burgers). To be fair the food, when it came about 30 mins after ordering, was quite decent, hot and tasty. This pub seems to rely on its sports bar in the main. It is not a wholly pleasant dining experience.More

Despite the mixed reviews on TripAdvisor we decided to walk from the Holiday Inn to the Riverside Vue For an evening meal and a drink. Greeted warmly shown to a lice table in a corner. Warm and inviting and courteous. Excellent meal with great service...couldn’t talk more highly thank youMore

Very disappointed, ordered spare ribs, they were burnt and the sweet potato fries were soft. No one came over and asked if everything was ok. Staff were not very welcoming, will not be returning anytime soon.

I would like to say thank you for the great food we have experienced this week. I like to choose food I do not get at home and the menu is big enough so that I will beable to very my choice. My parents went...for the first time for lunch and had the belly pork Tuesday. I had the duck confit with girlfriends at lunchtime Wednesday. I saw the Squid tapa so visited after Pilates Thursday. Then mum,dad, my brother and I celebrated my mum's birthday Saturday lunchtime! Firstly the food is fresh and delicious but also there is plenty of parking, it's right by the guided busway or like me it's a 12min zoom on the bike from Chesterton! Each time we all had friendly and attentive service no matter the time of day or who was serving. Looking forward to the Chiver's Jam Festival at the end of August. Considering the bands that are playing at the pub I'm presuming 'Jam' is a play on words!! 😆 It's how I explained it to my dad anyway!More

We were overnighting at the Cambridge Holiday Inn (HI), and hadn't been impressed by the lunch food there - so decided to seek out a local alternative pub/restaurant - within walking distance of the HI. Found the Railway Vue on Tripadvisor - so decided to...try it. This is no way a "destination" pub, it's not trendy - it's a typical town/suburban pub. We went there in the evening for a meal, where we received a friendly welcome, drinks (brought to the table) etc. Decent choice of dishes on the menu, and I selected chicken caesar salad and a side of triple cooked chips. I do like caesar salads - and this was one of the best I have had, certainly one with the most chicken ever. As for the "triple cooked ships" - these were fantastic - big, crispy, but with soft fluffy potato inside. My wife ordered prawn/avocado salad - which was great - but a bit lacking in prawns, but no worries - I had so much chicken I was giving it away!! So that's it, the Railway Vue - nice pub that sells good, decent, reasonably priced food. It's interesting to read that reviewers have found a miserable/nasty person running this pub. May be they exist - but we didn't encounter anybody like that,More

We were staying nearby and spotted this pub on the map when looking for somewhere local to eat. When we first arrived our impressions were that it appeared to be a sports bar as there was a busy outdoor seating area with a big screen...TV showing a sporting event. Inside the decor was slightly dated and the place was virtually empty but we had a very warm welcome. There was a wide variety of food choices from traditional mains to tapas dishes. Our party of 4 ordered 2 mains and a selection of tapas dishes. Potion size was large and the quality was good.More

Miserable woman who runs the place. How I was spoken to today as a customer was unbelievable. This was before I’d even opened my mouth. Last time we’ll be there. Best of luck to them!

Do not go to this pub! the owner of the pub is a nasty piece of work even her own staff seemed terrified of her, she was screaming at people who were not wearing masks at the pub but her OWN STAFF including her weren’t...wearing a mask! The owner then went over to one of my friends table and sat herself down and started smoking a cigarette whilst speaking to my friends who all looked very confused and worried as to why she just say herself Down which is also breaching covid. Drinks were half full when we ordered them overall the staff wasn’t great besides one of the waiters who asked me and my friend if we were okay and apologied about the awful experience we had with this woman who claims to own the pub, her name is lauretta. Never going here again she either must be a alcoholic or have anger problems as she was so rude aswell as very hypocritical in what she was saying as none of her staff or her were even wearing a mask. It’s one thing telling someone to put a mask on fair enough but the way she was shouting at us and being extremely aggressive was not on.More

A last minute decision led us to this lovely village pub. Very friendly and comfortable. Very safe and well signposted both inside and out which made us all feel very safe. A well kept pub, very clean and tidy, a lovely conservatory which is light...and bright. The beer was well kept, bright and refreshing. Drinks were table served, and no sooner had you ordered, it was delivered with a smile. The menu was varied, tasty and something for everyone, from tapas style small plates to a full roast chicken with all the trimmings. The coffee was also good. A nice pub with lovely staff and good beer and food.More
