A buzzing local gastro-pub in Newmarket, The Kentford prides itself on modern British cuisine, with menus dictated by the seasons. Live music features alongside regular social events, all aided by an excellent drinks selection.

A seasonal menu at The Kentford offers up delights such as the hearty venison fillet steak, with squash and carrot puree, tenderstem broccoli and a plum and chocolate sauce, and beautifully fresh smoked salmon with sautéed spinach, delicate poached egg and homemade smoked salmon mayonnaise. For lunch, there are nutritious light options and gourmet burgers, while Sunday lunch is a 3-course tour de force of British cooking, incorporating locally-sourced meats.

Wines at The Kentford in Newmarket are grouped by body and character, while classic cocktails are expertly mixed. A live jazz trio creates an upbeat ambience with monthly performances, while weekly steak nights and wine clubs pack out the pub’s homely and rustic interior.

The Kentford sits on the A14, 9 minutes’ drive from the centre of Newmarket.

    We really enjoyed our meal. The Kentford is a lovely public with friendly and helpful staff. The food is delicious and very reasonably priced. We also loved that the kids Pizza meal was served in a little Pizza box. Highly recommended and will be going back.

    Disappointed with the service and the food, had to wait ages for our drinks and for someone to take the order when food arrived it was luke warm and not that great with poor quality Yorkshire Puddings and not enough gravy we will not be returning.

    Tables a little sticky. Chairs were wobbly. Cutlery had funny handles and felt awkward to hold. Food was well cooked. Very expensive for location and ambiance. 2 people on a Steak night with 2 courses and a drink each. £57
    Won't be going back.

    Went on Fathers day so was a set menu which is shame as I would have liked to order something else. Had a roast beef, the roast potatoes were awful dryish and hard and my beef was really chewy needed a steak knife to cut! However the starters was lovely (camembert) and the chocolate brownie dessert was heavenly!! Really enjoyed that. The staff were lovely and attentive. Even gave my daughters some goat food to feed the goats after dinner. Nice beer garden and restaurant.
