Review on The Cambridge Chop House
A dream location directly opposite King's College is one of the prime attractions at this recent arrival on the Cambridge scene. For many years, the site was a favourite with resident academics and visiting scholars, but it has been given a new identity as part of the Cambs Cuisine group (which also runs the the Cock at Hemingford Grey).
The place is spread over two floors, with an upstairs bar and a ground-floor dining room with whitewashed brick walls, vaulted ceilings, discreet alcoves and views of the street action on famous Kings Parade.
British food is the order of the day, with a traditional roast every lunchtime and a specials board listing various homemade sausages with mash. Elsewhere on the full menu, you might find savoury puddings, Barnsley chop with greens and whole sea bass with mustard sauce. Start with game terrine and finish with iconic Trinity burnt cream (the forerunner of crème brûlée) or fruit crumble with custard. The Chop House serves decent locally brewed ales including Nethergate straight from the firkin, as well as well-chosen wines at very fair prices.
