    The staff were lovey, but as the room filled up they got busier and so we had to wait longer. They gave us some free olives as we waited for our mains to acknowledge the wait even though we hadn’t said anything which was a nice touch. The quality of the food was good and the portion sizes were very generous - especially the roast dinners. It’s a lovely room and you don’t feel on top of the other diners like you can do it some restuarants.

    We had a very enjoyable meal at Parker’s Tavern. The food was very good. The servers were very nice, if a bit young and inexperienced. The timing was a bit off—my G&T arrived at least 10 minutes after my husband’s wine. But otherwise, we got a table with a nice view, as requested, and had a tasty meal of venison, goat cheese and endive salad and crab rarebit. The dining area was tastefully decorated with an interesting array of vintage prints and posters.

    Beautiful bar and restaurant in an iconic Cambridge spot. Food was well executed and the service was attentive. The only negative was the volume of the music which succeeded in drowning conversation.

    The service was absolutely abysmal and took for ever even to take our order. In practice we had to call over the manager to get any service at all every time!

    Good food and ambiance but the service was VERY slow. It took an hour for our food to arrive after we got there and ordered. . It was necessarily a late lunch so we were already hungry . The place was less than a quarter full by then so I was surprised why it took so long. To be clear the issue was with the kitchen - the servers were very attentive and kept apologizing .

    Beautiful dining room. Limited dinner menu but nice meal. Young and promising staff would benefit from 30 mins training on basic skills to elevate the experience (dinner: cutlery placement, listen to order, coordination with other staff, where to seat solo diners. Breakfast: monitor for no plates/bowls) to what is expected in such an establishment.

    Wonderful two course set lunch. Warm welcome with birthday drink and superb service throughout. Feel thoroughly spoilt and enjoyed the cashew curry and rice pudding which were well presented and delicious.
