Got of to a good start with very quick service, seemed on a mission to get our food order and food then arrived very quickly except for two of our party who’s food had been forgotten. Staff not very attentive and seemed to spend a lot of time talking to each other
Good food served by an attentive and personable server. Very enjoyable.
Good food very friendly and relaxed
Surprised they wouldn't accept cash, not advised this on arrival or displayed within the pub.
Extremely friendly and welcoming staff and the food was tasty & well cooked.
Yet another lovely lunch at our favourite eating place in Chesterton!
Perfect although very busy. Excellent fish and chips. Limited menu but everything was freshly cooked and tasted excellent.
Food was good although a little pricy! Service was good other other than none of the staff wore masks - I know it is not a legal requirement but I am am still not comfortable with it - COVID has not gone away.
Fantastic food quality, lovely service, great beers on
Good food, good value with excellent service at a well turned out venue in a busy part of Cambridge
Lovely pub decor wise, and in general staff were good, although difficult to get a smile out of some. Food was nice, but a little expensive for what you got, but no different to anywhere else.
Comfortable seating and clean, and we looked at some of the others in the area, and this was by far the best in our opinion.
Very warm and welcoming staff as usual. Excellent main course (fish and chips!). A bit slow with service for dessert. And a 175ml glass of wine knocked over by the server was replaced with a 125ml and still charged for which, considering both my wife’s top, trousers and my white t shirt got hit, I think was out of line
Always a good option. Food’s been good every time we’ve been, service excellent - friendly, helpful and fast - good atmosphere and mix of ages. Good for a pint or a meal…
A very friendly and valued local pub. So glad it is open again, as I no longer bother to cook when friends come - so much easier to take them to the Old Spring!
Lovely pub with excellent food. Sad to see not more people taking advantage of it.
Great ambiance, friendly service and great food. I highly recommend this place!
An excellent meal with very helpful staff with our cousins visiting from Glasgow. Will certainly go again.
The service and food was fantastic. Every time I visit The Old Spring it is consistently good. I recommend it to anyone that wants a traditional meal with a twist.
Excellent helpful and cheery staff. Highly recommend the lentil salad-very tasty
Excellent food and service but they did charge my card for a item I didn’t have unfortunately I only found this I checking my receipt later at home
Very welcoming towards us and my brother’s very large Newfoundland dog!
Had a lovely time and the staff were really friendly.
It is a really nice pub, with a good choice of menu options and efficient friendly service.
Helpful, friendly and attentive staff made the delicious food even more acceptable.
I found the menu considerably reduced compared to two years ago. My choice was cooked well and tasty but my son who had a vegetarian dish found it bland.
Jenny.who waited on us was friendly, courteous and patient with us. Other staff were courteous too.
We both chose burgers
Nothing special just ok
Fantastic friendly pub with great staff and lovely food. The home made wedges/chips are amazing. All the food was lovely.
very up together place well run with attentive service. Beers were fresh. Food is very much restaurant quality; the pork tenderloin moist and crisp parsnip crisps were well appreciated as well as accurately cooked cod, the size of a small cricket bat and chips.
The photos online don't do this place justice. Lovely space with a great outdoor area, and fabulous staff who really made us feel very welcome! The food was great too, with even the kids' fish and chips cooked to perfection.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
We all enjoyed our meals.
The atmosphere was good.
Wider choice of menu would be beneficial.
The beer was good (Abbots and Woodford Wherry) but the pint of Lavendar was off and did not taste good.
The portions for the easy bites could have a bit more bread perhaps?
Shared a Greek salad with a friend and then added a child's meal each as we can't eat big meals at lunch time.
Lovely, friendly place. Good quality food, friendly service. Easy to book.
Really nice food, nice sitting outside and inside. Attentive service. Will definitely come back.
Lovely food and service but drinks very expensive and service charge added.
Lovely time, thank you. Staff were friendly and even called to see if we wanted to move our outside table inside as it was raining, very attentive.
It was great to be back at the Old Spring. It’s a great pub.
We sat outside which was lovely. Great wine, very tasty food, fun ambience and friendly and attentive service. We had a really great time catching up with friends we haven’t seen since lockdown.
Great friendly service & very accommodating as we had book a table indoors but turned up an hour early and got stable outside, which we requested to stay at for our meal books as the weather was so nice. We had a lovely evening.
It's a nice gastro pub with friendly and professional staff, freshly cooked delicious food and nice ambience. Highly recommended.
