Restaurants In Cambridge


The Cambridge Food Scene Is Exciting

England outside London is often thought of as quintessential countryside or cities steeped in a sleepy English tradition. It is true, that you can come across places like this, but in many cities you can find a real vibe these days. One of the oldest university towns in the UK, Cambridge is one of these. Born out of a group of students from Oxford on the run from the law, it always has had it’s own character with its previous religious houses turned into colleges, the river Cam flowing through the heart of Cambridge and the Red Pole cattle grazing on one of the many commons. Despite of the fact that Cambridge was branded ‘the worst clone city’ in the UK some time ago, it’s on the mend at a fast pace!

You’re spoiled for choice for restaurants in Cambridge these days, as you can dine in ancient colleges, tuck into delicious street food, feast on an excellent meal in one of the many Gastro pubs go for a healthy option in one of the trendy cafés or sample some fine food from one of the deli’s or at one of the Mediterranean or exotic restaurants. This might sound all a bit straight forward for a Foodie traveller as a real Foodie is always on the lookout for more excitement than just a table and a chair or a street van. You have come to the right place then! Although some locals probably would raise their eyebrows if you tell them that Cambridge is a Foodie destination, it has a lot on offer though. As soon as you go off the beaten track, you will stumble across a Cambridge with many hidden treasures and foodie gems.


Cambridge is changing at such a rapid pace, that even the locals cannot keep up.
