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.

    The lunchtime menu option of 2 courses for £15 was excellent value - the main course and dessert were both delicious.

    A great venue to relax - cosy and elegantly quaint settings, flavoursome food, cocktails and beers full of character and great service. Perfect!

    We had a lovely meal here. The six of us had roast dinner which was so tasty. Would definitely recommend the beef roast.

    Food was average and an ale selection of just one. Lamb roast was very dry save for the copious amounts of gravy. Cabbage was good. It was good enough but just not great value for £.

    Lovely food, and food, friendly service.

    The restaurant's ambiance and decor were clean, warm, classy, and inviting. We came specifically for the Sunday roast which was excellent. The chocolate and coffee roulade dessert was an afterthought, but once we had our first bite we were glad we ordered it -- it was phenomenal. Excellent food all around.
