Is there a better way for saying goodbye to England than having dinner in Sir Isaac Newton Pub? We noticed this pub when we arrived at Cambridge and we decided to go there for celebrating the last meal in our holidays. The pub is a very comfortable place and the staff is very kind so we have really enjoyed our meal.
Can you imagine what I have eaten?
The Gravity burger seems very luscious but it’s obvious that my choice has been the Isaac Burger: an open toasted burger bun with a Homemade 7oz Beef/Pork Burger, Cheese, Onion Rings, Salad Garnish, Homemade Coleslaw and Chips. I have no words for describing the pleasure that I’ve felt when I’ve tasted it:
The place is suitably decorated. For examble, there is a big apple tree painted in the ceiling…
…and some ‘Warholian’ apples on the walls:
However, the picture which has impressed me more has been the set of portraits of Newton hung nex to the steps:
The six portraits were painted by (from left to right):
- Sir Peter Laly in 1665 (?)
- Sir Godfrey Kneller in 1689
- William Gandy in 1706
- J. Vanderbank in 1725
- Painter and date unknown
- Bas-relief presumably by Wedgwood
I’ve taken pictures of each portrait but they are not so good because of the light reflection. Therefore, you must go to Sir Isaac Newton Pub and enjoy a very good meal. Then, you will also be able to see all these portraits and the Newtonian environment.
