Parker’s Tavern has been a feature of Cambridge life since 1834. Back then, it was known as a place where those travelling to London would break their journey. Today, it’s less of a stop off and more of a destination.
This British brasserie is, without doubt, one of the city’s most stylish dining venues and was designed by renowned designer Martin Brudnizki, while chef Tristan Welch has worked in some of the best kitchens in the world and delivers meals that will be comsumed, but never forgotten.
On the menu, you’ll find dishes such as honey and thyme slow roast Norfolk duck with bitter greens and silky creamed potatoes; spaghetti Bolognese; nut-brown buttered sole; and, for a truly special occasion – roast rib of beer cooked over coals with truffle mashed potatoes, braised shallots and sauce Bordelaise. Popular meat-free dishes include roasted cep and Messia mushroom tart and salt-baked beetroot hache.
Dessert is a must, too, and we love the sound of ‘Ripture Rapture’ described as “an eruption of ice creams, parfaits, sauces and sweets – a celebration pudding serving up to 6 people.”
