    Good pub grub, not cheap but not too bad foe Cambridge. Gets very busy so avoid peak times, worth the visit & other options close by if it's too busy.

    V.busy on the weekends. Head to the RAF room for the best tables (where James Watson used to sit). The fish and chips are excellent value.

    Great for a pint in the little alcoves or outdoors! Food is run-of-the-mill pub fare, a touch bland

    If you can find a seat outside in the courtyard in a sunny day, you're a winner...

    ARM's microprocessors are in almost all the world’s smartphones, so its employees have a lot to accomplish every day. But after work, they relax at this local pub, which is more than 300 years old.
