We needed an early supper before going to a Christmas concert at St Barnabas, so gave The Sea Tree a go, even the good reviews. We were not disappointed - great haddock, chips & mushy peas; my wife had the scampi. Pots of tea and really helpful, cheerful service. We'll return in the New Year without a doubt. Recommended.

After a morning in a nearby playground it was lovely to have an excellent lunch with my partner, his daughter-in-law and grandchildren. We were lucky to get a table in the small dining area as it mainly caters for takeaway fish and chips. I was very impressed with the wide menu and the specials board which catered for all tastes...

Basic looking/ trendy restaurant First thing I noticed was the politeness / caring manor of the staff. A really decent bunch - thank you all I had mackerel to start & ordered a large cod in batter with salad & an excellent house red to accompany. All the fish was so fresh & tasty. My only complaint- the 'large' Cod... More

During a trip with my wife to the UK (I'm from there and now live in the US) I bemoaned the further decline of the good old fish and chip shop. It is fair to say that the best fish and chips are in the UK. That being true then the Sea Tree must be the best fish and chip... More

Been going to The Sea Tree since we all moved to Cambridge and we all agree this is the best fish and chip shop in the city. Although they offer a twist on traditional dishes such cod and plaice, they do offer some exciting seasonal variations which I highly recommend. Enjoy

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.
