          Called in the middle of the day for a quick snack. It was empty, but then again so are many pubs at that time. Decor is scruffy although locals may well see it as 'lived in'. The barman was pleasant, good humoured and helpful.

          On the day of the Cambridge half you'd expect the local pubs to be busy and the Portland was completely unprepared, hardly any staff so the wait for drinks at the bar was over 15 minutes. We ordered food and an hour later when we...More
