  • The Eagle

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Cambridge Restaurants

    I would recommend the Eagle rather as a place of interest than a pub. Of course, a drink in the RAF bar and a toast to Crick and Watson, the scientists who met here to discuss their progresses in their DNA research. A commemorative plaque to Crick and Watson, who discovered the secret of the human DNA in 1953, is located in one of the bars. The RAF...

  • The Minster Tavern

    Ely Restaurants

    The Minster is a free house pub which does a large range of pub food classics like pies, sausage and mash, fish or gammon and chips, plus all day breakfast and fried snacks. It feels pretty traditional inside, with lots of nooks and crannies, mismatched chairs and tables, crazy wallpaper and half timbering, regency curtains, carpets in some areas...

  • The Orchard Tea Garden

    Grantchester Restaurants

    The Orchard Tea Garden in Grantchester is a long established cafe, with the nice touch of eating outside in the orchard it is named after. If it isn't raining, this is very pleasant, and you'll find yourself among a crowd of older people on weekdays or tourists on weekends. You sit on deckchairs from Brighton beach (not the New York one) and...

  • Henry's Cafe Bar

    4 out of 5 stars

    Cambridge Restaurants

    Before we headed off for our punting adventure, we stopped by Henry's for a spot of lunch. We tried to get a riverside seat indoors but there wasn't a large enough table for the 5 of us and a good portion of the restaurant was closed off as it wasn't very busy. Try to grab one of those tables or one outside on the patio. Henry's serves traditional...

  • Fort St George

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Cambridge Restaurants

    The Fort St George in Cambridge is an old traditional pub, part of the Greene King group. The landlord runs it as a gastropub (though some research shows it has exactly the same menu as some other Greene King pubs in London; said research was prompted by the waiter saying some of our order couldn't be done because the 'pickles we were sent fell...

  • The Varsity

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Cambridge Restaurants

    Varsity is a Greek Cypriot restaurant, but not particularly authentic. It seems to be in something of a 1970s timewarp. There are two or three dishes on the menu which come with a sweet mandarin, pineapple and cream sauce, and rather too many are served with chips. More worryingly, the Greek salad, is served with an overpowering mustard dressing. I...

  • Dojo Noodle Bar

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Cambridge Restaurants

    Fantastic food. Always fresh, realy value for money. Dojo stands out above the rest for its superb value. I go at least once a week. Place is pretty busy most of the time so it can be noisy but its all worthwhile. Tuk Tuk Stir Fry Noodles because its delicious!

  • Tatties

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Cambridge Restaurants

    Doing a quick bit of research just to check phone no's etc I found a review elsewhere where some guy slates this place because the lasagne was microwaved!!! HA! I'm terribly sorry but if you go to a cafe for lunch and it's called "Tatties" and there is this wierd aroma of freshly baking potatoes all-pervading and a huge menu of fillings for them...

  • Auntie's Tea Shop

    4 out of 5 stars

    Cambridge Restaurants

    Better than Sally Lund in Bath, better than Huntington Library in Pasadena is Auntie's in Cambridge. I practically lived here. Wonderful tea house, delicious food. I had the egg finger sandwiches and I can still remember the taste to this day.

  • Brown's

    2.5 out of 5 stars

    Cambridge Restaurants

    Brown's has been going in Cambridge since the early 1970's. It's probably Cambridge best known restaurant by quite some distance. It always used to be the sort of place that proud parents from the home counties would take out little Tarquin (whose up studying Art History at Queen's) for afternoon tea. In other words it was traditional, a little old...

  • The Anchor

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Cambridge Restaurants

    This pub/restaurant overlooks the River Cam, and many of its tables (especially on the upper floor) have good views of life on the water. The food was slightly better than average for Cambridge. I enjoyed a fish and chips. The haddock was coated with a delicate, light batter. Our daughter was very satisfied with a steak prepared with 'manchego...

  • Chez Gerard

    4 out of 5 stars

    Cambridge Restaurants

    I've been to Chez Gerard a few times, most recently on outings with friends from work, and it's been good every time. The cooking style is French, as the name suggests, and the steak-frites (steak with chips) are particularly good. While there are plenty of other options on the menu, the vegetarian options can be a bit limited - this place is...

  • Smokeworks

    Cambridge Restaurants

    Smokeworks is a quite new (2014) barbecue ribs and burger restaurant in Cambridge, near Market Square. It also has a food truck which tours pubs in the area or can be hired. In addition to the BBQ, there are a handful of side dishes (between the four of us we covered most), a veggie burger which changes occasionally, and a good range of interesting...

  • Yippee Noodle Bar

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Cambridge Restaurants

    Probably not a place for a business meeting, but a good restaurant to dine out with friends. Yippee Noodle bar offers freshly cooked Asian food with a focus on noodles and soups. The main dish is Yippee Noodles with Yippee sauce (no, I am not kidding) which I really liked. The atmosphere is not the drawing card with wooden benches and long tables...

  • The Wrestlers

    Cambridge Restaurants

    Cambridge is a mecca for Eastern food, but this place is my vote for the best food. It's a bit out of the way (a 10-15 minute walk from the Elizabeth Road roundabout), and it's lunch hours are kind of short (open from 12 -2 or the like, as I remember), but every bite is delicious and not another tourist in sight. Good beer too. Better arrive for...

  • Restaurant 22

    Cambridge Restaurants

    If you are looking for a place to take someone special, this is the place to pick. I know that the Midsummer House has a Michelin Star, but I went and had a look -- it's double price and very stuffy. The people at Restaurant 22 are friendly and accomodating and the food is excellent. I took my mother there for her birthday, which I mentioned to the...

  • The Burleigh Arms

    Cambridge Restaurants

    Disclosure: the Burleigh Arms used to be owned and run by friends of mine, but it has now been under new ownership for 18 months, though it has kept the bar manager. It has also undergone a bit of a makeover in the past 2 years, with the beer garden tidied up. It does a nice range of beers and wine, and has traditional pub food. Inside it is quite...

  • Gardenia

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Cambridge Restaurants

    This little take-away is conviently located for shopping or bar-hopping and it is light years beyond the trucks that stand in the market square at night. No place to sit, just a tiny bar to lay your food, but please don't try to walk and eat with this stuff. Better hunker down in the market square. I've seen people ordering the kebaps and the other...

  • The Hopbine

    Cambridge Restaurants

    Almost as good as The Wrestlers, and much closer to town, the Thai food here is really excellent. At lunch times, the place is really full of local office/shop workers lunching, but outside of lunch hours, it can feel a little dodgy inside. Nevertheless, the cook/waitress is thai, the beer is good (yay for speckeled hen!), and it's not too...

  • Anatolia

    Cambridge Restaurants

    The restaurant is downstairs and is attractively decorated, in the usual fashion for restaurants of this type, with lots of Turkish pots and statues on the walls. The food is good, if not particularly exciting, and the wine list while small has enough variety. Service was fine, although the waiter did make repeated good-natured jokes insinuating...

  • Nines

    Cambridge Restaurants

    Nines is a buffet restaurant in the Cambridge Leisure Park. It does all you can eat from a claimed 200 meal options, mostly Asian (Thai, Chinese, Teppanyaki, Sushi, dim sum - I can feel my GF tutting at me for typing that - etc) but with some Mediterranean (pizza, pasta, paella), and quite a few fried frozen products. For dessert there is a...

  • The Alma

    Cambridge Restaurants

    The Alma is a self described rugby and real ale pub - changed from the days when it was a reliable place for people to drink underage. It has lots of big screens for sports, plus quotes from rugby players, pictures of rugby players, and flags from some of the countries at the last Rugby World Cup. It delivers on the ale as well, as despite being a...

  • Clowns

    Cambridge Restaurants

    Clowns is a long established cafe in Cambridge. It has a clown theme, unsurprisingly, with lots and lots of clown memorabilia over the walls. Run by an Italian family, it has a range of Italian cakes, meals and drinks - and a fantastic atmosphere. The staff are really loud and friendly, and happy to recommend every dish on the menu! I hadn't been...

  • Charlie Chan

    Cambridge Restaurants

    Charlie Chan is a bit of a Cambridge institution, having been around for more than 30 years (50 including earlier guises). It regularly enters lists of the best Chinese restaurants in the southeast, so it's odd I hadn't been there before - though that's probably due to it being the most expensive in town. It does Chinese food (obviously) and dim...

  • Five Guys

    Cambridge Restaurants

    Five Guys is a popular US chain of burger restaurants which made its way to London a few years back, and I always remember seeing the huge queues and thinking they must be doing something right. Now I'm back in Cambridge and see they have arrived too. Nowhere near as big queues, so a chance to test it out. Inside, it looks like a typical diner,...

  • Butch Annie's

    Cambridge Restaurants

    Butch Annie's is another upmarket burger restaurant which opened in Cambridge in 2014, on the site where Carrington's used to be. You go down the stairs into a cellar like room - when we went we were greeted by oddly miserable music, but that picked up. There are tables, a bar and booths to choose from; we opted for a booth at the back. It's not a...

  • Teri-Aki

    4 out of 5 stars

    Cambridge Restaurants

    This place is situated in the most tourist trappy place in Cambridge (by the river) so the prices are expected to be a bit pricey. If you're on a budget, you may as well go somewhere with better food in London but if you're wanting a nice night out or a business lunch/dinner it more than serves its purpose as a plush Japanese restuarant with...

  • All Bar One

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Cambridge Restaurants

    My first visit to this chain of bars and pubs - and, well, just a completely forgettable one. I can't even remember what I had for dinner. The menu mostly consists of dishes you would expect in any pub like chicken fillet or burgers. People who have visited more restaurants of this chain may be familiar with it. It was not bad at all, but...

  • Cafe Rouge

    Cambridge Restaurants

    ....................well, fairly authentic anyway. Nice decor, good French music (?Django Reinhardt/ Stephane Grappelli?). Properly-sized cups of coffee. Only saw the petit dejourner menu, but seemed very reasonable to me (they do un petit dejourner anglais, should you so wish, but also croissants/ croque madame/ smoked salmon & scrambled egg etc)....

    We stopped here for a drink and some photos of the sweet scenes around the canal that this large old pub is next to - checked out the menu list - it was excellent with a rather mouthwatering selection of dishes and the prices were pretty good (a lot cheaper than a pub menu we had ordered from a few weeks before up around Wycombe!).A walk inside to...

  • A Great Indian Curry!

    The Taj Tandoori was located only a short walk from our guest house, and we had done enough looking around on this Saturday that we just wanted to have a good meal and relax. Of course, we were both game for a stab at some great Indian food. We were early, being among the first guests in the restaurant and were quickly seated and very well looked...

  • Very yummy Chinese food!

    I visited this place with a group of friends from work - and I hadn't eaten Chinese food for a while, so I was looking forward to it. Despite the minus point that they allow smoking in the restaurant, I really enjoyed it - the food was just excellent. Great crispy duck and lovely lemon chicken were highlights for me. Yummy!We ended up paying 30...

  • Good places to get a sandwich

    For good sandwiches, salads and fruit try Sainsburys in Sydney Street, or Marks and Spencers on the Market Square. Marks and Spencers' salads are very tasty! For simple baguettes and cakes you should seek out Pepperscorns in Rose Crescent just of the Market Square. I love their crispy bacon and egg rolls!!

    Known to be a student town, Cambridge has a good selection of reasonably priced restaurants. Nadia's is a small chain of bakeries that sells good pastries. There are branches along King's Parade and Silver St., each located close to a Scudamore Punts branch so that you can stock up before you go punting. I was recommended Dojos, an Asian noodle...

  • All Bar One

    Designed to be neither pub, restaurant or wine bar, but rather a melange of all three, I still look upon the All Bar One chain as first and foremost a pub! Definitely child-free and supposedly 'youth' free (you're supposed to be over 21 to get in) they do offer a more peaceful haven than the usual cram packed smokey boozer type of british pub....

    The Rainbow Vegetarian RestaurantSmall, below stairs eating areas. Quite 'compact and bijou', maybe too much so if you like a bit of space. Changes regularly. Great selection of soups, stews, tex/mex and so on. Homely cakes and puddings.

    Lovely food, good sized helpings, attentive (but not overly so) and efficient service, very good price. It's got to be the Vegetarian Mezze. A fair sized portion of every vegetable dish on the menu:1 - Olives, Feta, Pickled Chillis, Salad, Hummous, Tzatziki and Pitta bread.2 - Vegatable kebab, stuffed pepper, stuffed aubergine, rice.3 - Vegetable...

  • A good place for lunch is Cafe...

    A good place for lunch is Cafe Carringtons which is almost directly opposite WH Smiths on Market Street. Drawbacks are that it is located in a basement down some steps and it does get pretty busy sometimes. However, I think the food is good, not too expensive and you get decent portions. My favourite is the garlic fish!

They all wrote their names with lipstick or lighters on the ceiling of the bar. Many pictures are...
