Description: 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.

“porkilicious!”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

I went with several colleagues from work. I could not resist ordering the mustard ham hock. It was wonderful. One of my colleagues ordered it as well. I recall that there were a lot of things to choose from on the menu. It's a little on the pricey side, but it was a nice dining experience.

“We mean to return, if possible”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

This is an interesting old building which makes for a good atmosphere - and what a meal to go with it ! Really good food. Whilst some of us would have liked to try the fixed-price menu, which looked very good value, it only applies Monday to Friday, and we went on a Saturday evening. That said, the food we had was so good, none of us could complain at the medium price we had to pay. Also, the 2 young children in our party were allowed to choose from the fixed-price menu. Leave room for pud. Both the Chop House Mess and the Posset were delicious. Will try to go again if we are in Cambridge

“Early evening deal excellent value”
Reviewed October 3, 2012 via mobile

4 of us went on a Monday expecting it to be quiet. It quickly filled up & was very noisy & busy. Service just about kept up; the food was very good; cost £54 for 4 plus £20 for a bottle of excellent red wine.

“Excellent”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

This is really one of the nicest restaurants in Cambridge, excellent portions, delicious ales - I couldn't possibly complain about a single thing, and I'm normally very fussy.
