In a good piece of news for those in the Girton area, The Old Crown has reopened, with a new management team at the helm and a new food offering to enjoy.
Operated by the group behind The Plough in Coton and Don Pasquale in the city centre, this pub-restaurant is hands down one of the best looking in the whole city, with a stylish copper-topped bar, jewel-coloured velvet furnishings and art deco touches throughout.
It’s also got a large suntrap of a terrace and beer garden, while in cooler weather numerous fireplaces keep the venue cosy.
Food-wise, we’ve already heard fantastic things about the Sunday roasts, and during the week you can expect elegant crowd-pleasers like rack of lamb with crisp lamb belly and hasselback potatoes, plus brioche bun burgers and beer-battered fish with hand-cut chips.
There are some lovely options for vegetarians, too, with plans for lots more to be added over the coming months.
