The Cambridge has been serving audiences and thespians its great range of ales for more than 100 years. Part of the Nicholson collection of historic city pubs, this pub near Covent Garden serves a full menu of British classics, but you should really come here for the pies.

Even the familiar shepherd’s pie gets special treatment here, topped with English herb oil mash and served with honey-roasted carrots. Or for something a little different, opt for the venison and malbec pie.

Vegetarians don’t miss out with the likes of potato, spinach and smoked cheddar pie encased in vegetarian suet and puff pastry.

Seemingly there are two chains of pubs in London. This being one of them with cookie cutter menus that feature bland food. Which is made elsewhere, frozen and shipped out as authentic pub grub.

Now if you've ever had frozen mass produced mash potatoes before, you'll know the horror of when it enters your mouth. The synthetic texture and taste, the disappointment of a simple comfort food gone... more

We got upstairs to the main dining, was told we can just go and find a seat. Which we did, to be then told, please wait by the door as we will clean the table and call you back. Makes sense, no problem. A family of 4... more
