Profile information

I'm a retired scientist, and my wife and I like to eat out occasionally. We like decently cooked and nicely presented food that is good value - nothing fancy. We enjoy beer and wine but are not experts in either.

The Bath House, Cambridge

Updating my 2009 opinions: I no longer like this place for lunch. The old simple snacks have been replaced by McDonalds-style fast food, off plastic menus. Horrible. Reduced range of beers and ales.

As for the interior: I rather like it. When you look closely there is a lot of old traditional woodwork about (Not wood veneer) and it must be a historic building of some relevance. But some of the seating is not very comfortable.

The Bun Shop, Cambridge

I used to like this place for a quick snack & pint at lunchtime, when it was called the BunShop (true, the original one was on Downing St). It had a lot of rowing memorabilia and was popular with local shop workers for lunch.

I stopped going when it went to a fancy tapas bar - and so did most of the old regulars.

Tried it the other day, as an alternative to the Bath House (which has gone McDonalds-style) and found it OK for a light lunch. Hot beef bun tasty, though beef tough. Good range of varying micro-beers: I tried MistyRiver and it was OK. Menu is perhaps too extensive for a place like this, and a little bit expensive. A window seat is great for watching the strange people going up and down King Street!

The Red Lion, Hinxton

Atmospheric old pub - the rear extension is in keeping but looks more modern. Very comfortable, friendly and attentive staff. Woodford's "Wherry" good, and popular. Food good and service excellent. The acoustics are a bit noisy and for a time the "hooray henrys" at the bar were a bit off-putting, but we enjoyed our evening and will go back.
