Over the years, The Old Spring has gained a reputation for being one of Cambridge’s finest pubs, with restaurant-standard food and service and a charmingly cosy pub vibe – it’s the best of both worlds. A pub for all seasons, The Old Spring boasts an outdoor terrace that draws in crowds during summer; when the weather turns colder, the fireside sofas become the place to be.
The kitchen team takes advantage of the pub’s unbeatable location close to the River Cam to source the best local produce – much of it from East Anglia – for the gastropub menu. The food is freshly prepared on the premises, including the Sunday roasts. Whether you fancy a staple dish like haddock and salmon fishcakes, a freshly made burger or the chicken, ham hock and shallot pie, or one of the daily changing specials – keep an eye out for the likes of pan-fried halibut with samphire and slow-cooked pork belly – the same attention to detail goes into every dish, so you won’t be disappointed.
As you’d hope for from a pub of this calibre, you’ll find a top choice of ale and lager, including Abbot Ale and Birra Moretti. An excellent range of gin, malts and other spirits is also available alongside a wine list featururing 20 wines and Prosecco by the glass.
The Old Spring is the sort of gastropub everyone wants as their local; discover it for yourself before all the comfiest sofas have gone.
