    Not a bad place to eat, but the toilet areas are appalling. They are filthy dirty with weeks of dust on and around the the sink area. I would have expected them to be kept clean as this does not give a very good impression ????

    Good quality food, nice staff very friendly and attentive. Had the tomahawk steak, asked for cooked medium but was definitely more medium rare. I pointed this out, they offered to rectify but we choose to have it as is. It was delicious. Would go again

    I have eaten here before and never been disappointed this time round I felt that the food was reheated and the quality of the ingredients had gone down drastically

    The waiter walked past our empty dishes several times. I had to ask them to clear our table when I asked for the bill.

    Well, 2 important issues we had (rest was fine) : 1. We specifically asked to wait that we drank our aperitif before being served - meal was served approx 5 min after the aperitif… 2. The lamb was delicious but only 2/3 was eatable - the rest couldn’t even be cut with a steak knife… Too bad !

    Very attentive staff and matre de, as always steaks cooked perfectly and wedges are delicious too, peppercorn sauce is nice but could do with a little more of it but apart from that the food and service is fabulous. Drinks wise it’s a shame there’s no craft beer on the menu as choice they offer is a little small and not up to date.

    No guts no glory. Meat is good as a raw material, but served with no soul in a red-hot pot that leaves all the grease and humidity in the same place. No sauce will save taste if the cooking is so basic and the serving so wrong. Affogato with expresso served in a spirit glass. The expresso that comes with the affogato is an… expresso, so it needs - guess what? - an expresso small cup! Serving it in a spirit glass, not only will chill it quickly, but will make it spill out when you try to pour it gently on the top of the ice cream, as the coffee is too near to the top of the glass. For £7,5 (for an expresso and two scoops of vanilla ice cream!) one would expect the bare minimum in care.

    Absolutely lovely! Will be going back very soon! Amazing food. Steak was melt in the mouth and the staff/waiters were very polite and welcoming when we arrived and the whole time we was there!

    It is just a noisy pub, with too many guests for only one waiter working alone. Therefore the service is quite slow. The prices are really too high for what is served. The quality is good, yes, but nothing exceptional. It can be a good place for a drink.

    Arrived late as we had been delayed but staff were terrifically helpful in getting us a table. Restaurant was busy and atmosphere was great. Service was spot on and we had a lovely meal. Will definitely recommend and will go back when we return to Cambridge

    We left hungry having spent £200 .The chateaubriand for (weight unspecified , £75) was tiny , and would have been reasonable for one person as a fillet. Likewise for the “4 small prawns on a stick” starter was pretty measly.

    The restaurant has amazing service the waiting staff and management are lovely! The food was good however we felt it was a bit overpriced for what it is.. considering we are from london and can get bigger portions, better steak for a lower price. Overall it was nice
