Description: The River Bar Steakhouse and Grill, with its cavernous loft-like vibe, quayside location and creative crowd, has become one of Cambridge's premier restaurants. Located close to the bustling town centre, in a riverside spot opposite Magdalene College, The River Bar Steakhouse and Grill is a popular choice for special occasion dining and drinks. The Grill serves the very finest prime cuts of beef, aged for 28 days and sourced from local farms. The menu includes a large selection of cuts, from a classic porterhouse to a tender fillet or indulgent chateaubriand for two. Burgers meanwhile are freshly made on the premises and marinated chicken and fresh fish come straight from the signature grill too. Though based around the steak, The River Bar Steakhouse and Grill caters superbly for vegetarians, serves sublime desserts and prior to your meal we heartily recommend enjoying hand mixed cocktails in the bar, the ideal start to any special evening.

We went on the off chance there was a spare table as we had tried to book earlier in the day.The venue is to die for, a wonderful space with real historic character.When we arrived the place was packed.We both ordered the Chateaubriand which was cooked perfectly, the spinach was tasty and the chips spot on. For dessert we had... More

A colleague took a large group of us here- our waiter was very patient and overall fantastic. I wish I had tried the ribeye, it looked great- the filet was delicious should have gotten it cooked medium.

Had both dinner and breakfast here. Dinner was nice but nothing special, breakfast on the other hand was really good. Lots of continental choice. Even though we were staying at the hotel anything cooked was extra!!! Not the worst place in Cambridge for an evening meal but far from the best.

Food - (overpriced, poor quality - overcooked pasta in a bowl of cream for an extortionate price, BBQ Rib Burger extreamly fatty and again very over priced for the small bit of meat/Fat you get in it. (only 2 options for vegetarians) Drink - (wine is always good but very overpriced for the quality) Service - (waiter was rude, e.g... More

Breakfast is included in our rate and is served in the hotels restaurant. The food itself is fine but a bit thin. You can order eggs or sausage but is paid separately. Service overall is good. It does get busy during bfast but the staff remains pleasant and serves quickly when they can.

After attempting to eat steak in other restaurants in Windsor and Cambridge and being delivered an overcooked piece of leathery material for a meal, this place was exactly what I was looking for! Delicious, and cooked medium-rare as ordered. I had the baked camembert cheese for an appetizer and it was equally awesome. Definitely would recommend this place if you... More

Me and my girlfriend visited for a meal, it was our first time visiting the River Bar Steak House and Grill and I have to say we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, the food was great, the drinks were great (we found ourselves working through the cocktail list and even sticking around after the meal for a few extra drinks) hats...

We visited Cambridgeshire for our ninth anniversary. My husband booked this place after reading revues in trip adviser. The place did not disappoint. We ordered a selection of starters....too many but my husband likes to try a bit if everything. The nachos were lovely, I had mussels which again were really lovely and my husband had a chorizo Yorkshire pudding... More
