I couldn't spoil our family evening by complaining on the night ,but it was hard not too. How chefs get any satisfaction turning out less than average food ,beats me .I had to keep looking at the menu to try and match up the food...on my plate ,There are some lovely food options in Cambridge ,but sadly this isn't one of them.More

We have been going to stables regularly for 8 months every friday and more. But last week we were more or less thrown out. As the 3 of us sometimes more were told to move from a table at five to six for a reservation...at 6. We didn't know that the table was reserved and when we asked if there was any where else we could sit the waitress just shrugged her shoulders. Sounds like sour grapes, maybe, but between us we spend about 1400 a month. The way we were treated in our opinion was rude, discourteous and disrespectful.More

I think the party I was with ordered every starter on the menu tonight and they all got rave reviews. The fish and chips were amazing along with the Market Fish. We even brought home some sticky date pudding and cheesecake!

We hadn’t been here for a couple of years and were really impressed with the changes they have made. Service was really good, friendly staff. We both ordered the Pork Belly Salad and it was so delicious! Very generous size and really tasty and nicely...presented. Pleasant evening out - will be back for sure.More

My wife ordered a fish and chips meal and the chips were well and truly overcooked, my own meal Kingfish was listed on the menu with battered mussels , I asked that the mussels be left off as I have an allergy to molluscs -...I was assured that they would be omitted but was served a dish including one scallop and a mussel. When I mentioned this to the waitress I was advised that two such dishes were prepared and I was mistakenly given the one with shellfish - ruined things somewhatMore

Hugely improved since we last ate here a couple of years ago. Stopped in for lunch and were met by a bright and welcoming staff member. The pork ribs are so delicious, the best I have ever had, served with fries and salad. A finger...bowl was also provided without me having to ask for one. Husband said his Eggs Benedict was very good also. The service was very good.More
