The Geldart, Cambridge

A great pub for a drink. But worth a special trip for the food. The Hot Rocks may seem like a gimmick, but... the cut of meat served is typically excellent, and you can just like you like it. And every mouthful is hot.

They served the best oryx I've ever tasted. (Actually, it was the only oryx...)

The Bun Shop, Cambridge

As per the last post, the Bun Shop is yet again under new management. But unlike most of the prior incumbents (5 in ~5 years), these folks look like they know what they're about.

For now, the sign still says The Bun Shop, and the interior is little changed. But the new menu is in place -- watch this space for a report. We have also not yet explored the wine list, but it appears, as cameron.JA says, to have had some thought put into it.

The pub is due to close for what sounds like an ambitious refurb in mid-February, from which it will emerge re-christened the Jolly Scholar. But in the mean time, it's a properly run pub again. No need to wait for the refurb -- give it a try now.

The Graduate, Cambridge

Specifically, it is to become a Wetherspoon's pub -- as I predicted nearly two years ago, see below.
