    Why do waitresses insist on clearing table before everyone is finished?? Worst customer service ever. Not much veg and the potatoes were like rocks, way to dry and hard.

    Great evening, lovely slick, on it, friendly service, and the food was terrific, better than I remember. Only complaint was we were in a relatively small dining room and the neighbouring table was a large group of very noisy, public schooly types. Killed the evening for us a bit. Not the restaurant's fault obviously, but comes with the territory in Cambridge I guess.

    Two of us for dinner, one meal lovely as we expect from The Pint Shop. The other, veggie burger was very disappointing. They have changed from Beyond Meat to another type and it was thin and flavourless and had no texture. The red cabbage slaw was more like an Asian salad with coriander and no mayo. Such a shame because we are regular visitors and on this occasion I left underwhelmed.

    Food was decent but took 90 mins for our food to come o,n actually what was a quiet service (empty tables in the downstairs dining room and upstairs when I poked my head in). Everything took forever (30 mins for a missed scotch egg). We had to wolf down our food in 10 mins when it finally came as we were very late for a prior engagement. I requested a quiet table as I'm quiet deaf but we got put next to the music speaker which was inexplicably turned up during our meal and I couldn't hear anything but it. They turned it down fairly quickly though. Just a disappointing birthday meal for my 8 year old with his grandparents

    There is a wide ranging but short printed menu then a handful of specials. All the food feels cooked to order and everything my husband and I had was delicious. The drinks are fairly reasonably priced, the place is of course known for its wide range of beers which we have sampled many times in the past. The service is good and the staff friendly, if I was being super critical I think the waiting staff could be more engaging, but I fully recommend this place (we have been here many times over the years even though we're not local and it never disappoints)

    Lovely space; considered menu with some classics updates a little & just done really well. Fish of the day was delicious. Generous portions - just the right size for a comforting winter lunch. Great selection of beers (unsurprisingly!). Relaxed atmosphere. Really pleasant staff. Will return - as other dishes we want to try out.

    Gluten free chicken wasn’t cooked properly and over seasoned and was very much un edible. The value for money isn’t there, overcharges for the quality of food.

    Been going here for years but in the last year, the food quality and service have both really gone downhill. The last 3 visits all had significant issues with both the length of time to receive meals (over an hour in 2 cases) and the accuracy of the food delivered (missing or wrong items, items incorrectly cooked). In all cases, it wasn't even very busy and there appeared to be plenty of staff working. A case in point is their steaks which they promote heavily - steer clear! After several tries, it is clear they have no idea how to correctly cook one, either under- or over-cooking by at least one grade each time (e.g. the last one was requested medium but came well done, a previous one was requested medium-rare but came blue). Given the high quality of meat they use (Malloys) and the high prices they therefore charge for this (ribeye is currently £40) this is very frustrating. After so many issues recently, our last meal there this week was the 'last chance saloon' for the Pint Shop & they failed again - we won't be going back.

    Lovely meal on NYE arvo, had our 3 boys with us so anything that makes them and us happy is a win win! The children’s portions were perfect and the quality of the food all round was excellent. Us grown ups thoroughly enjoyed our tasty meal, and my husband loved taking his time to peruse and choose a beer. We will definitely be back.

    The service, despite being less than 30% full, was almost non-existent; rather the team were chatting and looking at phones in a hallway outside the dining area.

    Lovely lunch on Sunday. Table booked for 2pm luckily, as very busy. Main course only 4 diners including 2 children. Food was lovely couldn't fault and those Yorkshire puddings to die for. Only disappointment, we had to wait what felt like too long, for the food to arrive on our table. I did ask waitress when it was coming she went to check and was told being plated up!. With two children getting inpatient for lunch this was not ideal for us. Would definitely dine again as menu and food very good

    I do like the Pint Shop and food is generally very tasty but this time it was marred by being cold when delivered to the table and then to make matters worse, just microwaved to make hot again which resulted in dry potato and a dry burger. Also we waited 45 mins before someone served us. On the plus side the starters were lovely, the pork very tasty and the drinks their usual high standard. Also our waitress was great.

    The service is laid back which was ok because we had time but it did take over an hour to get our main course and probably 20mins to get drinks. The starter was just chopped tomatoes and goat cheese crumbled on it for £9 there was no special dressing to make the simple ingredients stand out particularly. My vegetarian dish was a little disappointing and was burnt. My husband didn’t complain about the lamb but didn’t rave either. I have eaten better for the price of a meal for 2 at £65 with 2 soft drinks.

    Service was slow although they did make up for this with a round of free drinks - tacos were virtually inedible due to overwhelming amount of garlic - nice staff and atmosphere but underwhelmed with food and price tag which suggests it’s up there…….

    The restaurant is rather cut off from the bar, hence a loss of atmosphere. It’s a hike to the toilets, but the beer and gin selection is immense. Food quality was very good and decent value for money.
