Great service despite us being a difficult group and some orders being mixed up by guests! Stuffed aubergine was delicious! All desserts were fantastic too. Would recommend for an informal business dinner.

This place is something of a local legend so expectations were high when we went there. It is a chop house so the emphasis is quite solid British, emphasis on meat, and the menu is perhaps little restrictive as a result. Smokes salmon was had...More

Just off the beaten track, The St. John's Chop House is a sister restaurant to The Cambridge Chop House. The restaurant is situated in a 200 year old former Almshouse. Split over 2 levels with 5 separate dining rooms it offers a wide range of dining options from an intimate meal in our Reading Room to the party sized rooms on the ground floor. Traditional British food is once again the mainstay, sourced as locally as possible, complimented by a local cask ale and an interesting wine list. Reservations are taken and recommended, especially at the weekend.
