Average at best, disappointing considering the price but staff friendly god service. The pork crackling was crispy but lacked seasoning.

No atmosphere, meal was average, service was fine. Maybe because it was a sunday night but there was no atmosphere in this restaurant, very flat and a little uncomfortable. The food looked great but lacked the quality of other steak houses such as gaucho grill...More

An good place to have dinner. The menu is reasonably conventional but cooked to good standards. The wine menu is a bit weak but still offers a reasonable selection. Service is very good and the overall experience will not disappoint.

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.
