Restaurant description

Listed in the Michelin Guide 2019, The Chubby Castor is a stunning example of rural British tradition paired with modern dining flourishes. Housed inside a beautiful thatched roof Grade II-listed building from the 17th century, enjoy gourmet dining all day, including afternoon teas and Sunday roasts. Expect a relaxed atmosphere, with a blend of modern and vintage design, and original exposed beams.

The Chubby Castor menu takes seasonal British produce and crafts stunning modern recipes, rich in colour. The menu includes dishes such as scallops, butternut squash textures and pumpkin seeds, veal sweetbreads with Hen-of-the-wood mushrooms or 28-day-aged sirloin, pomme Anna and Madeira jus.

Afternoon teas at The Chubby Castor in Cambridgeshire feature delicate cakes and pastries, along with sandwiches made with artisan breads. Colourful signature cocktails are prepared at the bar, with a range of beers, ales and fine wines also served.

The Chubby Castor is the first solo venture of chef patron Adebola Adeshina, and the restaurant has received high recommendations and accolades. A consistent wine list, with over 100 bins from great vineyards, as well some independent family owned.

A great example of polished rural fine dining, The Chubby Castor is just 10 minutes' drive outside of central Peterborough.

    Great services and flavour in the food, however disappointed that there was only one roast potato with the main and the Christmas podding was poor with only a drizzle of custard.

    Possibly the best restaurant in the area, fabulous balance of flavours throughout, pre-starters before each course were exceptional, there is a high talent in this kitchen destined for greatness. Go and experience now! My only negative...please loose the plastic plants on the dining tables!
