Fabulous meal, friendly service. Both my wife and I had steak that were perfectly cooked and served with mash or chips with melt in the mouth garlic mushrooms.

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.

    Excellent, good service

  • ((((( 17 February 2017 by Ann Ireland from Cambridge

    The food is excellent both in taste and value for money. Favourite dish - The Butler Steak, like butter! The staff are always helpful and very friendly. It was very busy last night but, as always, the staff were available when needed. The refurbishment isn't startling but apt for the place and the ladies toilets, a major factor, are pleasant to visit. We usually visit prior to the theatre so have the set menu and they take this into account too.

    A pleasant lunch in a pleasant restaurant. A good experience.

    My friend and I meet here twice a year for our birthdays. We then go on to the theatre so we have to leave early. Your staff were very friendly, made sure our meal met our deadlines and even put a candle in my friend's desert as it was her birthday we were celebrating.

    The interior of the restaurant is lovely! The venison haunch steak was wonderful. Staff are rather friendly, and generally quite helpful. We'd definitely go back.

    The butler steak was excellent but the vegetables with the suet pudding were cold and the greens were undercooked. On complaining the staff were excellent and produced a whole new dinner and cutlery to go with it.

    We were impressed by the quality of their dishes. The service was also of very high quality. We were very satisified.

    Great service, excellent value for money. everything was superb even the view of Kings College.

  • ((((( 14 February 2017 by Peter from Cambridge

    Very good value pre-theatre set menu. Three course steak dinner for a price that many places in similar locations would charge for just the steak. Food simple but very nicely done. Good service at appropriate pace. Nice to have option of half-litre carafe of wine as we might struggle with a bottle.
