First and Last, Cambridge

Pin It
A few days before the supper club I had promised Tim a pub Sunday lunch and after hearing many great things about the First and Last in Cambridge (formerly The Cricketers) we decided to head there. To start we ordered the baked camembert for 2 which came with a whole roasted garlic bulb (pure heaven), onion chutney & focaccia bread. Total over indulgence in the best way possible. My only complaint being that there wasn't enough bread to mop up all the cheese.

We then moved on to the roast. We both ordered the rib of beef and weren't disapointed. A huge Yorkshire pudding sat on top of a few slices of beef which sat on roast potatoes and honey roasted parsnips. To the side was a carrot, squash and cabbage mix which accompanied the meal nicely. My only complaint here was that because the potatoes were sat on the gravy it meant they lost their crispness and were pretty soft. I love my crunchy roast potatoes and it felt like such a shame as they had been cooked in duck fat. The meat was very nice and locally sourced, it would have been lovely to have it slightly rarer but thats just me being picky. They have a nice sounding daily menu which I would quite like to come back and try.

The First and Last is a nice pub in a quiet, quaint spot of Cambridge. The roast dinners come in at a very reasonable £9.50 and so are pretty good value for money. Its definitely worth a visit when you fancy leaving the cooking to somebody else one Sunday.
