Eating and drinking in Cambridge

Cambridge has a large number of restaurants/Cafes/Bars. A selection of the some particular favourites is given below:

Chez Gerard
French ££££
Good for Steak Frites. Cotes de Boeuf + Bearnaise sauce usually good.
International £££
Large open plan restaurant serving good food and decent cocktails.
Loch Fyne
Scottish ££££
Quality seafood restaurant perhaps a little over-priced. Seriously good smoked salmon.
Turkish £££
Meat, meat and more meat. Try the Turkish wine - memorable.
Turkish £££
Yet more meat, meat and more meat and the same selection of Turkish wine. Good for larger groups.
India House
Indian ££
A good Indian restaurant in the centre of town (close to Queens').
Indian ££
Just down Bridge Street. Good food (tandoori dishes recommended) but the service can be a bit erratic.
Sala Thong
Thai ££
small restaurant serving good food. The chilli based Thai dishes are enjayably spiced (close to Queens').
Charlie Chan
Chinese £££
Decent large chinese restautant near Emmanuel. Not cheap though.
Oriental £
Small, but good and cheap noodle bar.
Yippee Noodle Bar
Oriental £
Large brightly lit restautant serving good noodles and other oriental dishes.

The Pickeral
One of the oldest pubs in Cambridge dating from the 16th century. Dark, dingy with decent beer - beware the Old Peculier !
The Eagle
Large historic pub consisting of a number of separate rooms. One of the best pubs in the centre of town (opposite King's College).
The Castle
(Bridge Street) friendly pub with excellent beer - a Cavendish favourite.
The Mill
No nonsense pub serving good beer - good in the Summer when half of Cambridge spills out onto the unofficial beer garden by the river (beware the cows).
The Anchor
Fairly large pub divided into smaller rooms (near Queens'). Serves decent food at lunchtime.
The Granta
Decent pub overlooking the Mill pond (near Queens').
The Elm Tree, The Cricketers, The Free Press
A triumvirate of small friendly pubs all in close proximity (at the rear of Parker's Piece).
The Cambridge Blue
one of the best pubs in town, a good atmosphere and excellent real ale. Sadly it is a little way out of the centre. Non-smoking !
The Maypole
good cheap food and cocktails, beer is a bit of let down.
St Radegund
Old school style pub at the end of King's Street, dark, small, exclusive, good bitters. Just don't go with more than 2 people, you'll never fit them in.
Fort St George
Pleasant pub in an excellent setting by the Cam, perfect for a lunchtime beer on a hot Summer day (not quite the same in April).
La Raza
tragically trendy but is open until 1am. (Door charge). Often has live music (jazz oriented).
The Regal
if you have just turned eighteen and your name is Tracy - this is just the place. Best avoided on weekend nights.
