March 2021: Fingers crossed, it won’t be long until Cambridge’s restaurants can swing open their doors again. Under the current lockdown exit strategy, UK restaurants will be able to reopen from April 12 at the earliest for outdoor meals and from May 17 indoor dining will be on the cards again, subject to social-distancing rules. In anticipation of being able to eat delicious dishes without having to do the washing up afterwards we’ve updated our list of the best restaurants in Cambridge. From Michelin-starred heavyweights and enduring student favourites to new emerging joints and top-notch pubs, here are the hottest tables in Cambridge to book once lockdown lifts.
Welcome to the land of pubs. There’s enough real ale in this picturesque place to fill the River Cam twice over – and many of the best pubs in Cambridge serve brilliant gourmet grub too. But this quintessentially English city’s food scene goes way beyond fish and chips. So, after you’ve punted your way round the dazzling limestone centre – among our pick of the very best Cambridge things to do – go straight in for lunch or dinner. The best restaurants in Cambridge take in everything from a homey (and indulgent) Italian to a Michelin-starred blowout by the river. And like we said, don’t overlook the many, many tip-top pubs. Need some kip after all that? Then bed down for the night at one of Cambridge’s best hotels.
