Good lunch and pre-theatre offers: a juicy steak for a fair price. Great desserts (summer pudding is yay!). Was slightly disappointed about the beer selection -- could have been better. Having said that, will definitely come back for another steak!

Upstairs at this restaurant is actually the ground floor (there’s a basement level). He should be fine.

Located in the heart of Cambridge, opposite Kings College Chapel, The Cambridge Chop House is a traditional British bar and restaurant that has been popular with locals and visitors from further afield since it opened in 2007. Split over two levels, the ground floor boasts views of Kings College Chapel while the basement is an intimate, atmospheric cellar split into four rooms. The menu offers British classics made from locally sourced ingredients and the two course set lunch and pre-theatre menu is excellent value for money. Popular dishes include Mutton Barnsley chops; whole sea bass with wholegrain mustard sauce; and daily changing sausages made on site. The hearty portions are best served with local ales straight from the cask or wine from an extensive list.
