We loved the Butler steak which was marinated in herbs and tasted divine! We also had a great experience with attentive waiters and a friendly atmosphere. Nothing was too much trouble and I will be rushing back to the restaurant with all my family and friends!

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.

    Lovely lunch, friendly staff, food was great. We love the burnt cream, despite it not being available on the day we went.

    We love this restaurant, great setting, attentive service, but not intrusive, fine ales, wine list comprehensive. Upstairs, classic view of Cambridge, downstairs cosy & romantic. Great starters, the crackling a must. The roast beef pink & succulent, the roast pork moist. But, and here's the one disappointing niggle, they need to improve their roast potatoes. These let the rest of the gorgeous meal down. Won't stop me going again, but they taste like they've been reheated and not used the best spuds.

    Fabulous food - scallop starters were delicious and steaks were spot on. Great service (efficient and friendly) and ambience (upmarket but not too formal). This was my second visit and the quality was every bit as good as first time.

    The food was Ok but just OK, stingy with the chips although steak was good and pepper sause really good.Wine choice really limited to a single region ok if you like it not so good if you don't. Upstairs the restaurant could do with some blinds as sun in face during the summer
