Holly Minns and her partner Dan Fancett used to run the popular North Street Bistro in Norfolk before they relocated to Cambridge and opened Fancett’s in Mill Road.
It’s only been open since 2021 but has already garnered much acclaim being featured in the Michelin Guide among others and it’s no wonder – Holly and Dan won countless awards while at their previous restaurant.
Fancett’s serves French-style food made with seasonal British produce and not only does it taste delicious, it also looks beautiful on the plate. But far from being stuffy, this bistro offers a warm welcome with friendly service. And it’s reasonably-priced too, with a three-course Lunch du Jour menu costing £25 with dishes such as Broccoli Soup, Venison and Red Wine Stew and Buttermilk Panacotta
Dinner options are truly decadent – perhaps Whipped Chicken Liver Parfait to start, Choucroute of Roast Pork Belly for main and finishing with the Classic Baba au Rhum?
It’s the perfect place for a romantic meal for two.
