Portly Eats | Pizza at Othersyde | Cambridge, UK

When lockdown eased and we all came out of our houses blinking in the sunlight, the first thing on most people’s minds was… Where can we go to eat!?  Where better to go in a socially distanced new normal than a bar that’s outside, you can book your own table and all orders are taken…
