Bun Shop

The Bun Shop was situated at 1 King Street. This pub was built in 1970 and was also known as The Kings Arms and The Jolly Scholar.
Now reopened as The Cambridge Brew House.

I worked and qualified as a chef at The Bun Shop during the mid-1990s when the place was run by Peter Fagg (I believe he was the former owner of the Old Dot Jazz Club just around the corner, which closed some years earlier). It was a great place to work and I have some fond memories, including a chef who was into acid house music and sometimes came into work as high as a kite, and the night a man walked into the back entrance of the kitchen with a knife, only to run off after being met by a chef with an even bigger knife! After the late shift while we were doing the clean-down, we would all order our beers to beat last orders (ah, the days before extended opening hours!) and a large portion of sticky toffee pudding and custard or similar. Although there might be typical flared tempers in the kitchen, there was a deep-down closeness between the staff and we could all sit down to a drink and chill at the end of a busy shift.
