We went here for Sunday lunch today. It was awful. Nothing to recommend it. The meat was charred at the edges. The roast potatoes described as crispy on the menu and website were soggy with fat and almost black in places. The vegetables, a very small amount, were limp. It was not busy but the meal took 45 minutes to... More

We visited the beefeater on my husbands birthday and unfortunately had two sirloin steaks medium to well with salad, these we're so tough that I held my husbands plate whilst he tried to cut through them with a steak knife. Since it was a special occasion we did not want to make a fuss. Waste of money for us. With... More

Choosing to go to Beefeater Travellers Rest for dinner was an easy option. Delicious range of different food choices, stunning restaurant & a beautiful bar. Steak was cooked exactly to my liking, the staff are always exceptionally friendly and helpful and never fail to disappoint. On site parking, which is hard to find at restaurants in Cambridge, and a restaurant... More

We frequently visit the Beefeter for family birthdays. It's great for children and we always take games with us, as its not one of those places that kick you out as fast as they can. Its a really relaxed atmosphere with good quality, reasonably priced food.In addition there are plenty of discount vouchers available on line. The sharing plates, and... More

We stopped here for breakfast while I was in the sports shop behind. The food was excellent and staff very attentive. They were happy to fulfill my child's demands for warm milk. They only disappeared when it came time to pay! Excellent value for money as well because the kids were free! Highly recommend them.

Called in for breakfast to start the day and was greeted by young girl member of staff chewing gum with her hands in her pockets. Question :- How much training has she had and by who?

On arrival I find it slightly annoying that we were asked for drinks orders before even sitting down! The drinks then took over 20 minutes to arrive! Service was very slow and many of our food choices were not available (although we were not advised of this until after we had ordered). Quality was merely adequate. I have been here... More

I really felt that the place is understaffed and the staff must be poorly treated (just a guess). I had to walk around to find someone to serve us in the bar area and when someone did walk past us three times and saw us standing at the bar for about three minutes he did not acknowledge our presence. I... More

Came here with some friends on the night of the reopen and had a really good night. Good service, good food and a good atmosphere - what you look for in a good restaurant. I like that theres parking right outside, this is hard to find in Cambridge. Would recommend this place for friends and family meet ups!
