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.

    Delicious food - the duck was great.

    The service was good and the food excellent. The menu on a Sunday is limited down which was a shame but we found something we liked.

    The wine is all from France which I understand keeps cost down but if you enjoy red wine and not a fan of French red your going to struggle!

    The decor needs a touch up I think starting to look a little worn.

    Overall great experience, would definitely go back, however next time ask for a table upstairs with some natural light.

    Friendly welcoming staff provide an excellent service serving up high quality food in a lovely surrounding. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would.

    Perfect location, terrific atmosphere, wonderful food, I think we overstayed our welcome as a couple of waitresses started banging and crashing around us, we ignored them

    It was all wonderful - both the food and the lady who mainly served our table (a Brazilian lady, Kind and humorous)

    We had a decent lunch. We weren't impressed by the starter menu so had some nibbles. The pork crackling was great and the cauliflower & Brie croquettes were ok. My husband had the ribeye steak which he said was very good. I had the fillet of mackerel from the specials board. The fish was full of bones one of which got stuck in my throat. Quite scary. Eventually it dislodged and I swallowed it. Didn't mention this to the staff because I didn't want to make a fuss. Our feedback at the end of the meal was good. One other thing - we thought the restaurant was quite shabby and our table was wobbly.

    Love The Chop House! Fantastic food and friendly, attentive service. My son & I both agreed that our Sunday roasts - I had the beef, he had the pork - were amongst the best we'd ever had. Highly recommend.
