We had booked a small funeral buffet. It was just what we'd hoped for. Thank you

Went with a friend for lunch last Friday. Although quite quiet we really enjoyed our visit. The service was excellent, good mix of informative, attentive and friendly. We had the tapas which was very good and desserts yummy. I love love love the decor of this place and it feels such a treat without having to go in to the centre of Cambridge. We went to The Ivy in Cambridge recently also and it was an equivalent experience.

We recently celebrated our sons christening and went to the Old Crown afterwards for a light buffet and drinks with family and friends. The service was impeccable and the atmosphere just right. The food was delicious and catered for all ages including the children in the party. Our guests all commented how lovely it was and we will definitely be visiting again soon. Thank you

We have never been here before and after one visit have established you as one of our go-to places. Absolutely flawless service, not because we were waited on hand and foot but because the style, knowledge, level of contact and conversation was spot on. Food fabulous too. Keep it up

Delicious food with excellent presentation. Gentlemen’s afternoon - a good amount to keep someone full! Inside decor is impressive and comfortable. Toilets clean and tidy. Plenty of parking.

It was a wonderful fathers day lunch for Dad and Grandad. Grandad was not sure about going, as he had not been since the refurbishment, however he was won over and very impressed. I am sure you will see him again!

Most restaurants fail as far as Sunday roasts are concerned, you did not. It was the best Sunday roast ever in a restaurant Everything was perfect, I congratulate you. Will see you soon to try other meals.

Our waitress was great. She kindly spoke to the manager and as we weren't really wanting much Prosecco with the Bottomless Brunch they switched it for orange juice, which was very kind of her. She was friendly and chatty too.

I really like the new look of the pub, we visited on Bank Holiday Monday for lunch. I thoroughly enjoyed a beetroot salad to start, fish and chips for main and the best lemon meringue pie I have EVER had for pudding! I also enjoyed a cocktail in the lovely garden and we shared a bottle of wine with lunch. They also serve Aspal cider and Peroni both favourites of ours. The dining room is a bit dark even on a sunny day so we chose to eat in the bar area which bright and light. I would highly recommend The Old Crown and really hope they succeed, it was formally very popular with a more mature crowd but I’m not sure the marketing team have made a new customer base fully aware of how lovely it is and how excellent the food is. It’s great to have a pub within walking distance for us but they do have a large car park for those coming from further afield.

Having been back to the Old Crown since it has changed hands, was very impressed with the interior décor and changes made, and the food, staff and ambiance was good. A very relaxing Sunday afternoon was had by all guests.

Many thanks to Paul and his team for the buffet lunch provided to our family on Wednesday 2nd May. Good choices, good quantity and quality in a very pleasant atmosphere on a cloudy day. Attentive but not intrusive staff. Would happily recommend the Old Crown for a family event and hope to eat there in the future.

I really want this to succeed as the old regime was so very salad bar, doilies, and icing sugar, but it needs a level of warmth in all things. The waitresses have all been good and engaging, the managers are the ones who need most work. Please, you can do much better, and will need to as there are many as good and better. Would we travel to go back again, at the moment the answer is possibly no, come on we need you to be better in Girton please!!!

The menu is intriguing and varied, the food was exciting, interesting, beautifully presented and a fascinating taste experience. Truffle popcorn made an unusual strt to our meal.I was more than happy with my wild garlic Kiev but when I saw the lamb belly served to my friend, wished I'd had that! The petits fours were beautifyul and impressive, especially the handmade chocolates, though I personally would have preferred some small home-baked biscuits with them rather than apricot pastilles. My one moan, and it's a real one, was the price of the coffee - at £3.50 it was more then the petits fours, and it was a single cup, making it, I believe, the most expensive cup of coffee in the Cambridge area (even the Felix does a large cafetiere and a plate of six full sized home-baked biscuits for two for £7). Other than that, no complaints, and the service was exactly right - unobtrusive, understated, practical and friendly. Thank you.

Our local pub/restaurant has become an expensive venue and not matching service. A high priced menu, smaller portions and despite efforts service is not matching. Meaning from regularly to maybe occasionally visit. Surprisingly quiet on Mothers day.... We consider going to other nearby village venues for a casual bite, and for pricy/good/service ones into town. A shame

Sadly, the menu was very limited, portions small and quite expensive for a lunch out. The food was of good quality. There was no atmosphere as there were only 2 other people in the restaurant, of course the service was good, there was no one else to wait on. I will take it off my list of regular eating places.
