    Nice place to go for drinks with your mates. However, the food was overpriced and the portions were small. Would not recommend for food. Staff was friendly and polite.

    Great staff really welcoming, showed us to our table and came over with good time to take our order. Had a great knowledge of the drinks list and staff were knowledgeable. Nothing additional was suggested as a side for the dinner but we all felt it was a little incomplete. The people have burgers weren’t asked how they wanted them cooked. Burger - three people had burgers and were disappointed that the plate was so big with a small burger and chips. The bun and the meat were quite dry and very well done. No salad or veg. Just looked unfinished. Iron chicken - again the plate was large so it looked like a smaller meal. The greasy sauce was all over the plate and didn’t look appetising. With the pot of chips sitting in the sauce. Again no veg. The chicken itself on appearance was very stringy and lumpy. It looked like an off cut. The texture was as if it was only just cooked and very bouncy. Just not peasant and not a nice flavour either. Desert - we had sticky toffee pudding to finish and it was incredible. Amazing sauce, ice cream and pudding. Great portion and combination of flavours. I didn’t complain about the food as I didn’t want to upset the rest of the table. We also had a show to go to.

    Good location + outlook over the river, good food - but very poor service - for our dinner booking at 7pm, we were not advised the kitchen closed - at 8pm! And thanks to very slow wait staff, we missed the dinner cut-off for our dinner booking.

    We are so sorry to hear this, we have had some teething issues but rest assured they are currently being resolved. Do come and join us again as we would love to have you.

    We have a lovely time m, we did have an issue with the Mac and cheese we ordered but this was resolved quickly and efficiently without any fuss or awkwardness so we appreciated it. We look forward to our next visit - thanks to Daley who was our server for looking after us so we’ll, nothing was a problem.

    Delicious Sunday lunch with a decent bottle of (red) house wine. Live music, which was a teeny bit loud, but otherwise a good atmosphere. Would recommend for Sunday lunch.

    A nice cosy meal - most of the time at least (people kept leaving the door to the terrace open which left us cold at times). Overall though, I'd recommend this venue - decent food, and pleasant, straightforward service.

    Beautiful place to have place to have a drink. Great atmosphere and good selection of drinks. Food was disappointing and overpriced. We went on a Saturday and the service regarding food could have been better. Kitchen was overwhelmed and some of the staff didn't manage it very well. We still recommend having drinks there when visiting Cambridge though.

    To be fair they were very short staffed and quite busy, so we’ll probably give it another chance. But we waited over an hour for our meals to come out, and our food was cold, unpleasantly so, and the steak in my steak sandwich had a lot of inedible fat/gristle parts, very disappointing, probably a full third of the portion wasn’t edible. I hope they were just having a bad day. The staff who were there were helpful and friendly and were working very hard.

    Awful. Won’t go there to eat again. Poor, slow service. Soggy batter on the fish. Chips no better. Ate half my meal as I hadn’t eaten all day otherwise I would have sent it back, if there had been a waiter around.

    Incredibly poor service and the Sunday Roast was warm (not hot) and dry. The gravy 'or Jus' was very oily. Not even great gravy could have saved the chicken. Some drinks weren't available due to 'delivery issues'. Food partly dropped on arrival to the table only to appear again, same food, on a side plate! Made them aware of the issues but they didn't really care about our experience. Real shame, gorgeous location but the service was poor and the food was slightly worse.

    Booked Granta on the day. Only a 2100 slot left and we nearly never went as this was a little late, however I am glad we did. The Service was brilliant with friendly happy staff food just as good would not hesitate to recommend the Granta to any one.

    Great visit - we really couldn’t fault the service or the beer, we chose to sit outside in the heated section and look out over the mill pond - we will definitely be back.

    First time in since the refurbishment: staff very accommodating and flexible; food slight more expensive than previously but very good. It was fairly quiet but it was a Monday evening. A good evening.
