Posh fish & chips

Decided on Friday night I really fancied Fish & Chips and wanted to eat out. Sea Tree has a good selection of fish & sea food (crab, squid, mussells etc) and wet fish you could also buy. Myself and friend decided to eat in - casual, friendly atmosphere and nice staff. The food was nice - perhaps... read more

This is a unique experience. A restaurant in a fish mongers that also has a takeaway chip shop all in the same room. The food is all fresh and of the highest quality. The staff are great. The restaurant is licensed. Ice cream deserts were great too.

This is really worth the cost (very fair given standard of food and service - but don't think usual takeaway prices), and the trip (if you don't live in the over-the bridge area - if you do, lucky you - what a local!!!). Fabulously fresh fish, very well cooked - the usual menu of battered fish and chips, but also... More

Excellent fish and chips. Really nicely done. A convincing sans gluten offering of battered cod. It is clear that these people are passionate about fish 'n' chips. There is a whole range of seafood and wet fish to buy too! We ate in the restaurant which is a little noisy since it is next to the friary. But hey.

This small eatery is not meant to be for a protracted and luxurious meal, but the food is wonderful. The seafood is always fresh and the chips are home-cut. Try their fish cakes and go early because the specials run out quickly! The people who work there are lovely too.

I am not sure the quality of the Sea Tree is as high as it was when it first opened. The fish is usually very good quality, but it should be for the price. The fishcakes are not what they were and there is a tendency for the chips to be cold and the portions quite small. I am sure... More

Yes, you can pass by and get a quick haddock and chips. However, linger and sit down and the menu options will provide plenty of reward. I've had all their fish suppers. The scallops are sublime and the fish pie is how granny meant it to be. The staff are energetic , courteous and friendly. The wine menu prevents few... More

Best fish and chip shop in Cambridge. Fresh produce and friendly staff and all at a good price. Went here with my daughter, and we will be returning.

We took a chance on getting a table on Saturday 18 July and were delighted to get one outside - it was a balmy evening. Mill Road may not be the most picturesque place but it's full of life and we had a really enjoyable meal with great service. Sea Tree fish is always very good indeed and we were... More
