Wonderful service and yummy food!!! We are so happy to be able to visit here again!! Feels super safe with good systems in place. We will be back!!
Lovely friendly staff, lovely food and beer. Recommended
Had a great time. The staff were very helpful and friendly.
Came back day after having amazing steak and this time gorgeous fish and chips was served ! Friendly staff ,nice cold beer !
The Sticky Toffee Pudding was divine. All the staff were efficient and very nice, the roast meat was very good, but the potatoes and yorkshire pudding felt like they had been under a heat lamp for awhile.
Food was no where near worth the price attached to them, very adequate in terms of quality, nothing incredible, nothing awful, not worth the price
All items on the menu were marked up compared to the prices on the website, half of the drinks not delivered, we had 3 different waiters taking orders from us, very un-organised, meant some items were not delivered
We were given no itemized receipt and a heft service charge was placed on our bill without our consultation, nor were we even told about it, we only found out about the service charge after we calculated the items and they did not reach the total
Overall a complete rip off for the price they will charge you, 15 pound for a fish and chips which could have come from a Wertherspoons microwave
Amazing steak burger and ceasar salad,friendly staff,great atmosphere!
Consistently excellent food and service, if a little on the expensive side.
Great to get into a pub again and enjoy the atmosphere, would definitely go again.
Really nice food and lovely staff. Service a bit slow but that could be down to it being busy and they have fewer staff than usual. Thank you
I’ve celebrated my birthday in Cambridge and I have had lunch in this wonderful pub. The food has been excellent
and the service really good. All staff has been really kind. I’m happy of my birthday celebrayion. I strongly recommend it.
Friendly and efficient service. Look forward to going back
Everything was great! We were warmly welcomed and given the opportunity to choose a table. The food was delicious and the prices were reasonable.
Very friendly staff, tasty decent priced food. All round lovely evening.
Gréât outdoor garden. Welcoming staff. Amazing food.
Lovely covered terrace area which felt very spacious and safe. Food was very nice but a little on the pricey side. Service was good before ordering but it took a while for our plates to be cleared once we’d finished. Overall very enjoyable afternoon out, would recommend.
Even with the limitations of only outdoor seating allowed (due to covid) the experience was comfortable and I had the best Sunday roast I’ve ever eaten!
Lovely evening with friends. The staff were amazing.
Fabulous food and service, a little pricey but worth it. Staff cannot be faulted.
My only disappointment was that there were no outdoors heaters.
Good standard pub grub, friendly staff and lovely beer.
Fish and Chips were great, but the roast looked pretty drab - and that was my friend's feedback. Good selection of beers, friendly although sometimes a bit lost staff (probabaly lots of new people too, but always corteous and nice).
Very delicious Sunday road, attentive & friendly staff. Great ambience.
Great food. Really lovely staff. Very open marquee in new improved beer garden. A lovely family lunch.
The food was exceptional - by far the best Sea Bream I've ever had anywhere. The waitress was fantastic - we more than enjoyed our meal & just wish we could have been inside to enjoy the pub itself. We shall be back to try it again... (i returned to try out the pub after not being inside it for nearly 30 years!)
Best place we ate in Cambridge
Amazing staff ! Great atmosphere, lovely pub, definitely coming back again
Lovely choice of food, quick service, attentive (but not invasive) waiting staff, hope to be back!
Fun place to be, serving staff always very helpfull. Very well run Pub.
Food was good, staff were friendly & helpful.
Some details were missed such as not providing enough chairs for our booking to start with & enough cutlery. Also the table was a metal patio table with gaps in it that caused a drink to fall over when not placed back in the right spot on the table. To make the evening better maybe some blankets could be provided :)
Overall a lovely evening though & the old spring are doing a great job to cater for outdoor dining. I can really recommended the sticky toffee pudding it was delicious!!!
Very good food and service, in their lovely garden area.
Lovely staff, great service, tasty chips. Lovely evening :)
Had the best time ...met strangers and had a proper good laugh 😅
Just had beer and no food nice pub, but could do with some outdoor heating. Get little sun and when the wind blows you get cold quick.
Excellent Sunday roast, excellent service.
Great venue and quality service. I would highly recommend it
Nice food but table in front of pub rather than the back so it was on the road
Delicious, top quality food, excellent and friendly service, lovely setting.
First night out after lockdown
It was really cold but it was so worth it. Thank you to the entire team at the Old Spring for working so hard to make our visit so great (and safe). The food was delicious as usual.
Looking forward to to many more visits
Excellent food (chicken burger was delicious), service, and atmosphere. First dining out experience in nearly six months and it was a great choice.
It was a great place to go on my first time in a pub for a year!
