Peppercorn sauce was great accompaniment, and chips were brilliant - crispy outside, tender inside. Struggled to eat...More

The menu is filled with classic grilled dishes, but also incorporates some more unique dishes; for example the lobster mac and cheese - which, although rather rich, is delicious. I have spent 3 of my birthdays here, been with family several times and taken my...More

The restaurant is in lovely setting, the cocktails really good, cannot fault the staff and service. I am vegetarian and chose the macaroni cheese - it was hot and perfectly presented but sadly completely tasteless. The meat eaters enjoyed theirs though

The River Bar Steakhouse and Grill, with its cavernous loft-like vibe, quayside location and creative crowd, has become one of Cambridge's premier restaurants. Located close to the bustling town centre, in a riverside spot opposite Magdalene College, The River Bar Steakhouse and Grill is a popular choice for special occasion dining and drinks. The Grill serves the very finest prime cuts of beef, aged for 28 days and sourced from local farms. The menu includes a large selection of cuts, from a classic porterhouse to a tender fillet or indulgent chateaubriand for two. Burgers meanwhile are freshly made on the premises and marinated chicken and fresh fish come straight from the signature grill too. Though based around the steak, The River Bar Steakhouse and Grill caters superbly for vegetarians, serves sublime desserts and prior to your meal we heartily recommend enjoying hand mixed cocktails in the bar, the ideal start to any special evening.
