Description: Located in the heart of Cambridge, opposite Kings College Chapel, The Cambridge Chop House is a traditional British bar and restaurant that has been popular with locals and visitors from further afield since it opened in 2007. Split over two levels, the ground floor boasts views of Kings College Chapel while the basement is an intimate, atmospheric cellar split into four rooms. The menu offers British classics made from locally sourced ingredients and the two course set lunch and pre-theatre menu is excellent value for money. Popular dishes include Mutton Barnsley chops; whole sea bass with wholegrain mustard sauce; and daily changing sausages made on site. The hearty portions are best served with local ales straight from the cask or wine from an extensive list.

Our party of friends gathered in Cambridge for the weekend had a great evening at this lively restaurant. The food was superb - the men all enjoyed their 14oz Butlers Steak cooked medium rare accompanied by a delicious Pinot Noir from the Languedoc. The staff were very good moving us to a quieter table when a very noisy party arrived. Would thoroughly recommend this venue for a relaxed informal evening.

The Cambridge Chop House was recommended very highly by some friends I have in Cambridge. We were celebrating my daughter's graduation and had quite a few family members from far away. The food had to be perfect for this memorable event, and it was. I had the pork shoulder and it was quite a meal! All who attended with us to celebrate this occasion were impressed with the quality and quantity of the food at this restaurant.

My friend had mussels for starters and then venison and I had stilton and walnut tart followed by corn fed chicken with a really tasty sauce. The portions were big, so we both left full up! The service was quick and the atmosphere relaxing. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place, it is really good. It isn't cheap but you really get what you pay for here.

Amazing location in the heart of Cambridge city.
The best Sunday lunch I have eaten in a very long time, the Beer Battered Haggis Fritters were ingenious and the Salmon Wellington was divine.
Would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

A bit expensive and nothing special for the meat.
However the dessert was simply excellent
The waitress, I believe french, makes it look like snobby but this is an everage restaurant
Dessert made the difference for my vote
