Inside a snug 17th-century building with crackling log fires and exposed beams, The St John's Chop House showcases the finest succulent steaks and chops alongside carefully chosen local ales and an extensive wine list.

The finest cuts of meat feature on the St John's Chop House menu, ranging from classics like sirloin, through to 10oz delmonico steak, or juicy pork t-bone, all served with signature coleslaw and other indulgent sides. There are Chop House sausages, confit duck leg, and seafood recipes like coley fillet with spiced crab cake. As well as light bites like haggis fritters with beetroot and whisky mayonnaise, there are also vegetarian delicacies such as vegetable and walnut bake wellington.

Indulgent desserts at The St John's Chop House Cambridge include elderflower and whiskey jelly with champagne sorbet, and the classic option of sticky toffee pudding. Local ales are championed, as well as British lager and cider, while the wine list focuses on the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France.

Also serving gluten-free, dairy-free and children's menus, The St John's Chop House is rich in British dining tradition, and sits 12 minutes' walk from Cambridge Rail Station.

    Excellent food and service, as always.

    Quite a regular visitor to this restaurant and its partner ones in the Cambridge area. Food always nice, service friendly. Nice real ale, and several wines we like (Flying Solo is good value). Like the variety on the menu, mixture of 'standard' items and changes over time, plus specials.
    Tables are quite well spaced out, but perhaps my only comment is that the room still feels quite noisy sometimes.
    Parking can be a bit of a challenge in this area of Cambridge, especially if you do not have 'local' knowledge

    The service was first class. Very friendly & attentive. With a decent sense of humour.

    Really nice atmosphere and decor. Friendly staff and the food was really delicious. Only thing was that we were in a bit of a rush towards the end because it was difficult to get a waiter's attention and we needed to get to the theater. That set, the early evening menu is really excellent value for money.
