Pleasant - 3 out of 5

Carol L, Downham Market Sat, 19 March 2016

Enjoyed the experience but overall thought portions versus value was below average: expensive even for Cambridge. I very rarely have 3 courses but felt I needed to here. Both of our deserts were very good. Prawn and pigeon left no lingering memory. Salmon and pork average. Service was excellent - made to feel very welcomed from first entering to leaving. Also they brought me a finger bowl with lemon, thank you. Gave a good rating as didn't have satisfactory.

Liked: Service and venue and atmosphere.
Disliked: First course portions were very small - only 3 prawns and 2 had roe.
