The music wasn't on for the majority if our dinner and as it was a quiet Sunday night this affected the ambience a bit but this was literally the only thing I could say that's a slight negative. Best pizzas we've ever eaten, super lovely staff and a great selection of drinks. Gorgeous place.
Beautiful setting. Fantastic food and all round great experience.
Lovely venue, great food but we were let down by the tickets being mixed up in the kitchen and therefore having to wait a long time to eat.
Lovely outdoor courtyard so very Covid secure. Good food. Service let things down. They didn’t listen to our orders so our meals were not exactly how we ordered. Quite slow too but we didn’t mind that as we were catching up with friends so were happy to chat between courses.
Joined a friend for lunch - both travelling a fair distance as the restaurant came highly recommended - my friend arrived early, was given menus and seated, then ignored for 30+ mins by the waiter. No drinks or anything offered. When we had waited a while longer to be acknowledged we found a waitress who immediately showed us to a table, brought some drinks over, and took our order, as by this time we’d had plenty of time to peruse the menu! The waiter delivered our meals without wearing any facial protection/mask and leant over me to place my friends food down. I had to move back in my chair to avoid him! When I quizzed him about being the only one not wearing a mask, he said it wasn’t necessary as he was outside but he would put one on if I wished. By which time it was obviously too late to stop him breathing over me and our meals!! There was also plenty of room for him to place both our meals down correctly as we were sitting in the middle of the dining terrace.
The food was excellent and the waitresses were also proficient, so we paid the automatically applied service charge in full. However, especially in the current situation, better standards of customer care & service should be applied if this establishment hopes to retain its clientele.
Food was lovely but we had to wait over an hour . They apologised as the order slip was lost. When my order came it came with an additional dish that I didn’t order , so they took it away.
The manager apologised and gave us free desserts .
Would recommend the service to be quicker as we weren’t the only customers waiting .
Amazing food, not too expensive and great atmosphere!
Food was lovely and fresh. Small menu but lots of gluten free and vegan options, classic options with a contemporary feel
Great location with the outdoor space etc, unfortunately too cold for us that day. It was a pity that the pizza cook was off - but we will check beforehand next time as there was no one to cover. Our table was rather in the corner near the kitchen so lots of coming and going - would pick a different table next time. Food was really good but would have liked more vegetarian options.
First time visiting and we would definitely return. The food was lovely and the atmosphere outside with the DJ was great. Even though it was a bit cooler out, blankets were provided, it was definitely worth sitting outside to enjoy the music!
Love this place and what a treat to have it in Duxford!
Great location. The courtyard is the perfect location for a summers evening and the menu complements the location perfectly - fresh and seasonal ingredients.
Service good overall, it can go a bit awry at times but this is overcome by the friendliness of the staff.
Food was good and hot the service was excellent and a friendly
Fantastic food! So nice to have some good vegan options, and plenty of them. Only thing, a vegan dessert would of allowed us to stay and we would definitely of had another drink. So a vegan dessert would of meant we spent more. The service was friendly, and food came out really quickly.
Lovely locations and a beautiful setting. The service was exceptional and the quality of food very good. We’d definitely recommend this restaurant!
The service was friendly and speedy and the food was plentiful and delicious
Excellent food and wine. Good service. Nice surroundings.
Only had pizza , but they were lovely . Sitting outside in the courtyard in the evening sun at this lovely hotel restaurant
Funky great food great service Cambridge hot spot!
We love the new menu. So many lovely choices.
Great atmosphere, we felt like we were on holiday!
Top notch food.
Slightly disappointed in our visit earlier this week (with Rishi's vouchers). The garden and courtyard are attractive and very well laid out, but we chose to sit inside. The newly refurbished restaurant is quirky, with brightly-coloured seating, but some very weird (and unattractive) artworks on the wall. Our table was scattered with crumbs and sugar from previous diners - very off-putting. We ordered rib eye steak and a burger. Both very well cooked and presented - no complaints re the food. There was a brief debacle (and very colourful language) coming from the kitchen at one point, which was also slight disconcerting. The staff are all very young, smiley, all dressed in matching pink Hawaiian shirts. So, an interesting experience overall but will probably not be returning soon.
Long waiting times for both food and drinks.
Food wasn’t served altogether.
I so wanted this to be a good experience as the hotel itself and set up are superb. It’s kind of just what a local area needs and when the hospitality industry are crying out for support, it’s the kind of place you should want to pop along to - if the service matches up to the ambience and, unfortunately, it doesn’t.
Food took over an hour and 15 to arrive, three meals came out at three different times and one of the meals was completely wrong but at this point anything would have done. The staff did apologise but it just didn’t go as far as warranting a second visit, which is a shame. Two huge plus points are ‘lucy’ who was brilliant with communication prior to our visit and the cocktails - which were spot on.
I’m never sure what point review sites serve but if the management do read this - up your game because what you have could be amazing and could be so much more for the local and wider community.
2 meals got forgotten! Kids ate adults didn’t!!
It’s such a shame as this is a great place and we have been many times and they have been great service a little slow but expected in these strange times
Please please please improve
We were very disappointed with the service!
We had a table booked for 8.15pm, but arrived at 7.40pm for drinks.
We were told to take a seat and someone would take our drinks order, we waited 20 minutes and couldn’t catch any of the waiters eyes for a long time & they were taking drinks orders from bigger tables that arrived after us.
The drinks then took another 15 minutes to arrive at our table.
At 8.15pm again we couldn’t catch anyone’s attention to show us to our table which had been empty the whole time we were there.
We finally got shown to our table at 8.30pm with menus. Again we waited another 25 minutes until someone came over to take our order!
After ordering just before 9pm we were now starving, so were even more disappointed when the food took 50 minutes to arrive! A waitress bought our meals over & there was no apology for the delay.
As soon as we finished our meal at 10.15pm they were eager to collect our plates and then 10 minutes after brought over the bill and card machine at the same time (clearly wanted to rush us out the door and go home).
We asked for more time to check the bill and within 5 minutes another waiter came over with a card machine!
I had beef burger which wasn’t anything special and the burger was a bit burnt and very dry!
The atmosphere and garden area was really lovely, so it was a real shame that the service was so poor and considering there were about 8/9 waiters & waitresses hanging around!
Getting service right needs experience which will come in time but as a new place it will be popular
Interesting if it rains?
Lovely dinner outside on the terrace in the sun. Would definitely return
The service was very slow, especially drinks in the hot weather, the meal order was wrong but we were told it was correct and the staff did not have any ppe on which made us slightly uncomfortable.
The venue itself is lovely and the courtyard very good to sit in. The food order despite being wrong was nice when it finally arrived. Note not a great venue if you cannot manage stairs for one way system to bathrooms.
Great food, fab atmosphere, beautiful location. Lovely evening.
Lovely courtyard - felt like being on holiday! Food was quite good but it was a shame that it was over an hour between sitting down and getting food. Would be over-priced for what it was, although we were taking advantage of the Eat Out to Help Out scheme. Seemed like some of the staff who were milling about, should have been helping in the kitchen.
Beautiful setting. Fantastic food.
Relaxed atmosphere. Really had a great time .
Very expensive not somewhere could go regularly. Service was shocking. 45min till drinks order taken and over 1.5hour before food order taken. Good atmosphere. Lovely location.
The food was of poor quality, and the service wasn’t much better unfortunately
Lovely little gem in the heart of Duxford. Gorgeous restaurant and gardens, serving great food and drinks.
We went for a 40th Birthday and had afternoon tea and cocktails.
The only thing that let it down was the lack of service. I understand that new processes and procedures mean that staff are still trying to get used to new ways of working so let's hope it was a one off. I'll definitely be back.
Not sure if my experience was the aftermath of COVID but service was shocking, food bland, and even got asked to give up our table for some other diners after 1.5 hours. Moved to a seated grass area away from the outside restaurant where we got forgotten about again. Will not be returning, shame as outside area is lovely.
Great place with wonderful gardens and excellent food..
setting and food is lovely but a 3 hour wait for food - Terrible. Completely ignored by staff as we were sat inside when most people were outside. Will give benefit of the doubt and go again as we live in the village
We had, lunch, dinner and stayed the night at this lovely hotel. The food was fantastic, as were the staff, and so was the room. Unfortunately the only thing that was a let down, was the very long wait for food. This was unfortunately across the board, lunch dinner & breakfast. The hotel didn’t seem overly busy, so couldn’t see particularly why this was. I would have rated this a 5 star stay if it wasn’t for that. Would definitely try them again, as i am hoping it was a one off bad day. Would still recommend.
Great atmosphere, really good quality food.
Will be amazing when the sun is shining or when the sun goes down over the summer.
Just the 4 of us for a special occasion and given the current state of the Earth, a very pleasant evening. The food was exceptional and the service very personal (just the 4 of us in the restaurant and given the current state of affairs, it was nice that the restaurant stayed open). Can't wait until things get back to an approximation of normal for a return visit.
