Summary

With its “good, solid and nicely presented” food (of carnivorous bent) this 19th century exposed-beam eatery is “an excellent venue for treating student members of the family”; refreshingly, it’s “not overpriced for the area” (especially the “good value” set lunch).

Summary

Occupying a 19th-century brick building, this meat-centric eatery is worth remembering. Arguably “it’s not as good as the main Chop House in Cambridge”, but fans find it a useful option thanks to its “well-presented and tasty” fare.

Specialising in classic British fare and real ales, much like its sibling the Cambridge Chophouse; solid all-round ratings suggest it’s worth considering.
