We have dined at the Chop House many times - we enjoy sitting at a window table as daylight fades, trippers return to their coaches and the lights of Cambridge begin twinkling. On this occasion, however - a Sunday evening - things didn’t go entirely...More

Good atmosphere, smart decor, delicious food with attentive but not pushy staff. We opted for the set lunch/ pre theatre menu, there was a choice of 4 starters, mains and desserts our meals were tasty, and well presented . The restaurant supports local producers.

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.
