Harden's survey result
A well-known Victorian townhouse outside the centre, near Victoria Avenue Bridge, that opened its doors 40 years ago and, as of early 2018, is under young ex-Gordon Ramsay grad Sam Carter and his wife Alexandra (FOH). This has been one of the town’s major culinary destinations for many years: feedback welcomed on his creative modern British grub – changing weekly, and running to five- or seven-course tasting menus.
“Cambridge’s best-kept secret!”, say fans of this elegant Victorian townhouse outside the centre, near Victoria Avenue Bridge – whose dining room offers a fixed-price monthly menu: “a continued delight”, which they hail as “wonderful in every way”.
Most (if not quite all) reporters “love everything” about this intimate riverfront villa with an elegant (prix fixe-only) Victorian dining room – particularly its “cosy atmosphere”, but also its “lovely service” and “creative” cooking.
“Though not exactly cheap”, this “unique” and “really intimate” restaurant, in a riverside villa outside the city centre, offers “sublime” food at times; the prix-fixe gives a “good choice” too... “just as well since it's the only menu available”!
