Meat-based restaurant on the corner of King's Parade and Bene't Street, opened late 2007. As of September 2009, Another Food Blog reports that the Chop House has opened a second branch (St John's Chop House) on Northampton Street, on the old site of Prezzo Dining.
An anonymous visitor tells us that the menu is traditionally British, sourced locally where possible, and that set menus are available lunchtimes and pre-theatre at £11 for two courses or £15 for three. According to Another Food Blog, they also do Sunday brunch.
Another visitor, who identifies themselves as one of the partners in the business, confirms the existence of a vegetarian option; examples have included Whigmore Brie and shallot tart, and leek and potato Lancashire hotpot.
The Cambridge CAMRA newsletter linked below mentions that they have a couple of real ales served from the firkin, other real ales in bottles, and Westons cider direct from the polypin. It also says that although the place is mainly a restaurant, it's fine to come in just for a pint without eating.
