Note sure what the negative results are all about - visited for first time today, guy who greeted us went out of his way to seat us. Service was excellent- we opted for the grilled sea bass with sautéed potatoes, puréed peas and a delicious tomato and basil sauce, all for £12.95. The food was cooked fresh to order and... More

I have been last night with my wife. Welcoming service. We had crab cakes, cod and chips, and oysters. The oysters where to die for! Compared to other pretentious fish restaurants in Cambridge, the oysters were very fresh, properly handled and presented, and delicious! Will definitely be back.

Have eaten here a number of times and it doesn't disappoint. This time round 4 of us had goujons, cod and chips, haloumi salad and crab thermidore. It all tasted great, especially the chips which were thick and crispy, and the service was friendly and efficient. Highly recommended

Popped into Cambridge for a movie last night and then headed to The Sea Tree for some dinner. It is small inside and yet we didn't need to wait for a table - we opted to sit outside as it was cooler and we could watch the world go by. The salt and pepper calamari was very tender and delicious,... More

Run by a French chef- the Sea Tree will give you high quality seafood, whether that's the regular fish & chips or tuna steaks- fish stew is excellent; with mussels; clams, fish and prawns. My favourite is the pan fried Calamari with garlic, chilli, spring onion, lemon and parsley. Close yr eyes and you could be eating in Paris. There's... More

As I dislike fish and chips I wasn't pleased about going here. However, this restaurant serves the most beautiful fresh tasting fish and chips, fish pie which is totally moreish and which I really enjoyed, beautiful non rubbery delicious squid! Perfect for a simple but totally scrummy meal out. Value for money and warm welcome. Would recommend highly to anyone... More

This place combines unpretentious decor with unusually good food. There's standard fish and chips, but there are also posher options. It's worth bearing in mind when ordering that the fish and chips themselves are on the hearty side. The Mediterranean-style seafood risotto is excellent - more packed with seafood than you'd normally expect. And I love the prawns in garlic... More

During our stay in the UK we had the most amazing fish & chips in this place! The hosts were very kind and the food was delicious for a great price. I would recommend everyone nearby to try it out!

Been with friends on a Tuesday night and it was quite busy so I'd advice to book a table. The food is very tasty I'd highly recommend the tiger prawns, they are served with some slices of bread and are quite filing. The crab and salmon fishcakes are also very interesting in taste. Don't expect to be treated like in... More

The Sea Tree is an alternative fish bar offering traditional fish and chips alongside a menu of other fresh, healthy, sustainable and cooked to order seafood dishes, to eat in or takeaway. We buy our fish from Billingsgate Market to ensure we get the very best and freshest fish and change our menu depending on the season.
