Spent a very enjoyable evening eating at the Sea Tree. Sat on one of the few outside tables to take in the evening sun. Surprising menu with several unusual fish dishes as well as the traditional favorites. Shared a calamari starter followed by king prawns pan-fried with garlic & chillies both well cooked & very tasty. My husband had fish... More

Always come here with both my parents, it's our favourite place for the British Classic, done basically to perfection. The other stuff on the healthy alternative menu is definitely worth a try too! Staff are super friendly.

I've been to this place several times now as its so local. I've found the food variable, on one occasion the fish was excellent but another time the fish was very dry and not that great. We like the wide choice of fish offered and its this choice which makes the shop unusual. The problem I have is largely with... More

Went here for dinner on a warm saturday evening. Had read several good reviews so thought we would give it a try and mannnn, we were not disappointed. We had a table outside. The waitress (Claire - SHOUT OUT TO CLAIRE) was incredibly friendly and attentive. Within 20 minutes we had our freshly cooked calamari rings with aioli sauce (there... More

Dropped in yesterday afternoon for a late lunch and glad we did, staff were friendly and efficient and the food was beautifully cooked . Sitting outside enjoying the Mill road vibe adds to this lovely little fish restuarant. See you soon!

Luckily, this place is just around the corner from me. I love their fish stew - wonderful chunks of fish and hidden seafood delights in an amazing tomato sauce, served with crusty bread. They always have such wonderful things on their specials board - everything is so tempting. The service is really friendly and you can have either a quick... More

We used to live in the Mill Road area of Cambridge and were back visiting old friends. We discovered The Sea Tree which was just the most amazing place. It's a fish and chip shop and small restaurant. The menu was fabulous, scallops, oysters, fish stew - and you know that everything will be the freshest possible and homemade. One... More

Wanted something light so went for the fish stew. Tasty very fresh fish and seafood in a rather simple sauce. Pleasant but fairly expensive for what you get. Worth another visit to perhaps try the fish and chips as a take away.
