Great food and service. Cosy and warm restaurant with good quality and seasonal food! They also have a great selection of wines including an amazing dessert wine which accompanied my pudding really well! Thanks to the team for looking after us, will be back!

The steak was not bad, however it had almost no salt and it was slightly overcooked. The 1st course (the soup of the day) was delicious. Portions were good. Staff was attentive and polite. Somewhat overpriced for what it offers.

Hi, I'm afraid there is no parking on site, however you can park in the pay and display opposite the restaurant. The road is called Pound Hill and is @ £1 per hour. Parking during the week is not a problem but at the weekend... More

Just off the beaten track, The St. John's Chop House is a sister restaurant to The Cambridge Chop House. The restaurant is situated in a 200 year old former Almshouse. Split over 2 levels with 5 separate dining rooms it offers a wide range of dining options from an intimate meal in our Reading Room to the party sized rooms on the ground floor. Traditional British food is once again the mainstay, sourced as locally as possible, complimented by a local cask ale and an interesting wine list. Reservations are taken and recommended, especially at the weekend.
