Focusing on great British classics, The Cambridge Chop House is a cornerstone of tradition in the city centre. Serving superb cuts of meat and traditional ales, the restaurant has spectacular views of King's College Chapel, as well as an intimate cellar dining area. In the mornings, barista coffee and fresh pastries make for an ideal start to the day.

Succulent steaks and chops take pride of place on the Cambridge Chop House menu, including sirloin, rib eye, butler, and Barnsley lamb chop, all served with sides like signature slaw, a range of sauces, and even additions like garlic and herb king prawns. Seafood dishes also feature, such as salmon wellington, and there are hearty salads and vegetarian dishes like courgette and broccoli tomato bake. Dedicated children's menus are offered, as well as gluten-free and dairy-free options as well.

Traditional British treats can also be found on the Cambridge Chop House dessert menu, such as lemon posset with stewed rhubarb, and gingerbread man with Cambridge burnt cream. The wine list focuses on the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France, and there are local ales served alongside lagers from Calvors Brewery in Suffolk.

A wonderful example of fine British tradition, The Cambridge Chop House is 8 minutes' drive from Cambridge Rail Station.

    Visited for partners 60 th birthday -staff were excellent - loved the fact that the cut of steaks were brought out prior to order and dishes explained and recommended. Could not fault the service. The restaurant was very busy and vibrant but the two girls serving worked very hard and were exceptionally attentive and friendly and made our visit memorable. I would have no hesitation recommending this restaurant to my family and friends. Food was lovely, would definitely visit when I am in Cambridge again !

    Easy to book through the online system, I knew my friend and I travelling separately were going to be late and so phoned through. Seated straight away on arrival and good attention by staff. We both ordered the Sunday roast which came very quickly and was absolutely delicious, especially with the additional gravy the waiter kindly brought. Good selection of beeers. Had not been for a long time with having moved away from the area, now back and as it is still of such a high standard I will definately be back again. My friend had not dined here before and was impressed.

    Sunday roast as good as you can find. We discovered the Chop house some while ago on a visit toCambridge and now travel the 60 miles each way quite regularly to enjoy the Dungeon, the wonderful food and the great service. Hope to see you again soon.
