152-154 Hills Road, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, CB2 8PB
A smart and deservedly-popular restaurant, with a plush red interior.

The kitchen, headed by Mark Poynton, has an ethos of seeking out ethically produced ingredients, produced as naturally as possible; and this philosophy is carried right through the operation down to the type of light-bulbs used. So expect locally produced food - some organic - and line caught fish, cooked to a high standard.

As would be expected, the menu follows the seasons, but late Spring brought 'Pressed Pig's Head Terrine, Crispy Ears & Port Onions'; 'Smoked Salmon and Chive Layered Terrine with Pickled Lemon' and 'Globe Artichoke and Ratte Potato Salad, Jerusalem Artichoke' among the starters.

'Green Leek Risotto with Shaved Parmesan'; 'Cod Fillet with Crushed Potatoes & Pea Purée' and 'Rack & Breast of Denham Estate Lamb with Kholrabi' listed among the mains.

Desserts such as 'Crème Brulée with Biscotti'; 'Warm Valrhona Chocolate Fondant with Coffee Ice Cream' and 'Poached Rhubarb with Iced Nut Parfait' might tempt you, as might their selection of Farmhouse Cheeses.

They hold regular Jazz Nights - so enquire if these interest you.
