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.

    The service is really good, I went there an hour earlier than the booked time (Cambridge shops closed pretty early in the evening!) and the staff managed to get me a table right away. And they dropped by every now and then to see if you needed anything or are happy with the dishes. The mushroom soup I ordered was delicious. And the steak was lovely, though I think it was well done rather than medium (which I ordered).

    Amazing service, unbelievable food. Our favourite restaurant in Cambridge. Favourite dishes are the crackling sticks, haggis fritters, sirloin steak w/ peppercorn sauce. Waiter was really friendly and helpful as we had my 2 year old niece with us.

    I've eaten here a number of times and I keep coming back. It might seem like a contrary choice for a vegetarian like me, but the food and friendly service are always reliably top notch. There may not be a lot of meat-free choice, but what there is is very good quality (a really excellent bean stew at present). I particularly like that there is a clear nose-to-tail commitment about the menu and the meat seems to be treated respectfully by knowledgeable staff (they often bring round a demonstration board of the various steaks). My fellow diners have always enjoyed the meat and/or fish dishes served (the 14oz butler steak being a favourite of my husband's, my daughter loves the mussels) and I'm more than happy to eat here with them. If you get an upstairs seat, you can look out at the splendour of King's College, but downstairs is a delightful warren of cosy rooms that's an experience in itself. There's a pre-theatre menu before 6.30, which is excellent value and the staff are conscientious about making sure you get served in good time. An unfussy but classy atmosphere, and probably the most fun toilets in town!
