Great location, friendly attentive service. I requested a window table which they did give me despite it being a busy Saturday evening. All three courses were very good. The lamb steam was perfectly cooked (medium rare). Will definitely go back again.

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.

    Overall it's a good restaurant, but I preferred the St. John's Chophouse. Very busy on a Thursday evening. Hard to find a place to leave my bike nearby. Starter of ham terrine was good, but pork crackling was almost inedible as it was rock hard. We should have left it. My partner chipped a tooth eating it. This spoiled the rest of the meal. For the main course I had ox cheek which was good but not great. We were too full for desserts.

    Had a lovely evening served by Corrina, very helpful and friendly, lovely food. Had the theatre 3 course special, very nice. Stayed in Cambridge for Graduation and it was the best meal over the couple of days.

    I visited The Cambridge Chop House for the first time on Sunday the 16th October with my family. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the service was excellent. The sirloin steak I ordered was cooked to perfection and the chips and mushroom sauce were both outstanding. My sister ordered the mussels to begin with -and she said they were the best mussels she has ever had. My only slight criticism was that my vegetable parcel was quite cold inside-but it was ok-perhaps it was not supposed to be a hot dish. In summary, we were all delighted with our experience and we will highly recommend the Cambridge Chop House to anyone we know who plans to visit Cambridge. I was so full afterwards I am disappointed that I never got to try the burnt cream with the gingerbread man! Next time!!

    The food was nice but the noise was deafening. We eventually retreated elsewhere for coffee and dessert so that we could talk. I'm not sure what they can do about this. Once one person shouts, everyone else has to. But the stone floors and walls make the sound echo. The service was OK but a bit slow.

    Very good 'meat' meal. Lots of steak, chops etc, all well cooked and tasty. Wine options seems a bit expensive for Cambridge but fine overall. Friendly staff, knew when to leave us alone and when not to, though a bit lacking in knowledge about the cheese course.
