Description: There are a lot of restaurant names which make us happy, but none more than The Missing Sock - a quirky dining room on the outskirts of Cambridge in the equally wonderfully named Stow-cum-Quy. Not just a restaurant, The Missing Sock is a part of the community with its strong values making it the kind of place that you���ll want to come back to again and again. Not only is the food - made with high quality ingredients - unusual, intriguing and delicious but the atmosphere is fun and laid back, the staff friendly and welcoming and the restaurant itself attractive and comfortable. Introducing a wide range of international cuisine, The Missing Sock has introduced a whole host of new ethnic cuisine to the folk of Cambridge. So you might attack a spicy little number from the wilds of Africa while your friends indulge in Irish, feast on French and enjoy Japanese. Children are equally important customers here at The Missing Sock too and the restaurant has provided numerous first dining experiences, meals equally well thought through and exciting for small visitors as for their parents.

“Great place for families”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013

This was our second visit here. Staff very welcoming and friendly. very accommodating to dietary needs, we had a child who is allergic to dairy with us and an adult with a nut allergy. The garden was a great place for the children to play. Food good, unusual curries which were very tasty. Not many other people when we went so very quiet and bit lacking in atmosphere.

“Great place for a wedding reception!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

Just wanted to say big “thank you” to Hugh and his team for a wonderful wedding reception that we had for our daughter’s wedding on Saturday, 28th September. The place is wonderful, with plenty to do for every taste. The staff are helpful and discreet, they did everything we asked them for and more! Everyone had a great time and it exceeded our expectations. The food was wonderful and the whole day just fantastic!
We also stayed in the rooms after the wedding, and they were clean and comfortable, with everything we needed.
I hope that the Missing Sock will prosper and entertain many more happy customers!

“Wedding reception: LOVED IT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2013

I went here for my friend's wedding and must say this place has such wonderful character (just like my friends! :) ) Place is located outside of Cambridge and boasts with a funky karaoke-bus, dance-floor, dining area, bar, plenty of bathrooms and the whole place is painted in very funky colors and has very special design. It is very bohemian and friendly, don't expect the staff to run and get what you want though if you snap with your fingers, they will however do what they can to make you feel comfortable. This is a chilled place with lots of potential. Food was delicious.

Don't miss looking at the stars at night when you leave the place. Place is surrounded by nature and nature is what you get. Recommend it.

“Best place for a wedding reception ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

I am still beaming from having the most amazing wedding day ever. They have done wonders with the place! Don't be put off by the staffs eccentricities, they go above and beyond to accommodate and really delivered on the day. The venue is magical, the atmosphere relaxed. A big thank you to Hugh and Chris!!!!! I can't wait to see where you go next with the Sock, as every time we visit it just gets better and better :-D
