High quality food and lovely service . The decor good and tables positioned well didn’t feel on top of each other. We had the Lamb and Beef which was excellent. Thank you

The Chubby Castor at The Fitzwilliam Arms 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.

The Chubby Castor menu takes seasonal British produce and crafts stunning modern recipes, rich in colour. A la carte options include Botanist 22 Gin-cured trout with oyster mayo and pickled cucumber, along with Highland venison with roast parsnips, miso-glazed sweet potato and oka roots. From the bar, enjoy smaller plate treats, such as battered soft shell crab with sriracha mayo, and BBQ crispy pork belly with black pudding.

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.

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

    Good Sunday lunch with excellent starters and beautifully presented desserts. A bit disappointed by the fatty rather chewy lamb

    Excellent decor , good atmosphere, great fine dining food so good I returned within a week with my son who is a chef so he could enjoy the food and restaurant.

    Excellent food but the service staff need more confidence. I guess this will come with time.

  • ((((( 27 March 2018 by Jennifer from Peterborough

    We had a good Sunday lunch here. The setting in the attractive village of Castor is lovely, and the restaurant has been very nicely refurbished. The atmosphere is upmarket and ideal for a special dinner or lunch. Our food looked and tasted great - salmon with pea risotto for me, and leg of lamb for my husband. Recommended.

    Lovely food, good wine and drinks choice. Really nice ambience, good service provided largely by local youngsters who are being trained to a high standard. Overall, a fabulous night out.

    The atmosphere and food was excellent but the service was average. Expanding on this, it is my belief the staff were passable but not trained, the service didn't match the food, for the price i expect more and therefore i do not feel it was not good value. We will return as you have only just opened, and being in the industry i understand it takes time to get staff trained.

    This new restaurant has a lovely feel to it , smart and modern but also cosy and intimate at the same time , very friendly waiting staff , lovely bar area for pre dinner drinks . Food fantastic , we had 3 courses , and although not cheap , it was definitely worth the price and I cannot fault anything , a special mention to the rhubarb soufflé , please don't ever remove this from your menu , the best I've ever tasted and I need to have it again soon !
