mac n cheese

To start:

We start by sharing some Mac and Cheese Fritters. Served with a honey and chilli dip (or truffle if you prefer), these crunchy, moreish little treats are the epitome of comfort food.

The Vegan One:

For the main event, I go for ‘The Vegan one’. A sweetcorn & chickpea patty, raw carrot slaw, spicy almonds, and a cool almond yogurt tzatziki.

A delicious, satisfying burger, served with well-seasoned, crunchy fries.

vegetable side

Vegetables are all too often drenched in oily dressings by restaurants (in my opinion) but this was not the case here. I was delighted! Naturally tasty, crisp, fresh vegetables, with the addition of spiced almonds- a really great side.

meat main

Glazed Pork Belly:

Jon enjoyed one of the classic, meaty mains (the BBQ meats here are amazing). Smoky pork belly, spicy cabbage & cucumber slaw, with a sriracha hot sauce. He goes for sides of white and spring cabbage slaw, alongside more of those great fries. Another happy customer.

  • I love Cambridge and this sounds like a delicious place to visit. The food looks amazing. I go to one place only when I have my day visit (Fitzbillies) but next time I will venture out

  • I pretty much can’t eat there – I’m allergic to mustard and they put it in virtually every dish (quite contrary to Natural Law, I might add). Very disappointing, because I do love my slow-cooked meat.

      • What I’d actually like is for them (and every other restaurant) to print allergy information on their menu, both printed and online. It’s not hard.

        What I really hate is having to ask them what’s in every dish I fancy eating – it makes me feel like I have to make a fuss just to get food that isn’t going to make me ill, and I have to rely on the expertise of the waiting staff, or bug the chef at a busy time, neither of which I want to do, as you really don’t want to make a mistake with allergies.

        It’s unlikely they’d be able to do anything off-menu, as most of the mustard will be in the meat rubs or the mayo used in slaws etc. So I’ll happily patronise this group’s other restaurants, but not, I tihnk, this one. (I don’t really care for smoked meat much, smoke suits fish but not meat IMHO.)
