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.

Having been a faithful customer of yours for over 2.5yrs, I'm sad to say goodbye. The past few visits have truly disappointed. The fish has been overlooked and tough; the batter oily and clearly burned in parts. Gone is the perfectly golden brown batter, and succulent white haddock that melts in your mouth. Would have rated 5-stars when I first... More

Sea Tree had been recommended by 2 work colleagues, and as we live locally decided to try it out. My fish stew was gorgeous, and came with lovely crusty bread, my partner chose the king prawn salad (+ hand cut chips). We were both very impressed not only with the good quality food but also with the friendliness of the... More

Super fresh seafood, awesome atmosphere (although it can be a bit chilly in the winter months). Gluten-free selection is PHENOMENAL. Everything I have ever tried there has been awesome, except one time we had a piece of fried cod and it was a bit watery. Everything else, pan-fried calamari (divine sauce), fried calamari rings, fried halloumi, fresh salads, scallops, chips... More
