Midsummer House - Cambridge

Midsummer Common, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, CB4 1HA
A marvellous restaurant (easily Cambridge's best for French-style food), set on the banks of the River Cam. The dining room is bright, being partly in a conservatory, with well-spaced tables and crisp white napery.

Starters might include the likes of 'Foie Gras Ballotine with Apricots and Rocket'; 'Salad of Smoked Eel, Crispy Pigs Trotter, Cured Foie Gras & Braeburn Apple Purée'; or Crisp Parma Ham with Langoustines.

Mains maybe - 'Monkfish with sautéed Chanterelles and Parsnip purée'; 'Turbot Braised with Peanuts and Pistachios with Wilted Cos, Squash Purée and Asparagus'; 'Best-End of Old Spot Pork - cooked in Hay' or 'Pastilla of Oxtail with buttered Spinach'.

Desserts maintain the interest - maybe 'Chocolate Jelly with Valrhona Sauce' or 'Caramel and Lime Soufflé with Ginger and Lemongrass Ice cream'.

No mobile phones in the dining room.
