Stopped here for lunch after visiting the chapel at Kings College. The food was an excellent surprise. Fresh and delicious. We shared the quiche, which was served with three side salads and the vegetarian curry stew. Both were excellent.

Was looking for somewhere to have a drink and cake in a very busy Cambridge on the first sunny day of the year! Came across Michaelhouse and managed to find a table outside. Bit of a queue inside but efficient service, delicious shortbread and flapjack....More
