We recently enjoyed an excellent meal at the Joshua Tree Bar and Grill whilst staying in Cambridge. The service was very good and the burger was absolutely delicious with plenty of fries and salad. Very nice staff working on both food and serving drinks.

Joined colleagues for a Friday evening get together. Service by Theresa was excellent and friendly. Very good selection of draft beers. We focused on starters which were also very good. Good place to unwind on a Friday night.

This place was nothing special. Decent place to get a drink. The fries were good but the wings were just average. The service was good though.
