Four for lunch - delicious! Good, attentive and efficient staff. A very varied lunch menu with something for everyone. We sat downstairs, which was nice & cool, and perfect for a good catch-up at the end of term.

It is not often you want to award five stars, but this place is good. We went as a pre-theatre family group (just around the corner from the Arts Theatre) and all ate from the excellent value pre-theatre/lunch menu. Nice to be presented with a...More

Located in the heart of Cambridge, opposite Kings College Chapel, The Cambridge Chop House is a traditional British bar and restaurant that has been popular with locals and visitors from further afield since it opened in 2007. Split over two levels, the ground floor boasts views of Kings College Chapel while the basement is an intimate, atmospheric cellar split into four rooms. The menu offers British classics made from locally sourced ingredients and the two course set lunch and pre-theatre menu is excellent value for money. Popular dishes include Mutton Barnsley chops; whole sea bass with wholegrain mustard sauce; and daily changing sausages made on site. The hearty portions are best served with local ales straight from the cask or wine from an extensive list.
