The Chubby Castor

Adebola Adeshina has been on a culinary journey through London, Essex and Richmond, honing his skills along the way and garnering awards before decanting to the Cambridgeshire village of Castor to start his own restaurant.

Castor is a delightful village located around five miles from Peterborough, with honey-coloured stone houses and a beautiful thatched 17th century Grade II-listed former pub, The Fitzwilliam Arms. The Chubby Castor is housed within this characterful ex pub.

The cooking here is excellent and uses the best quality ingredients. On our most recent lunchtime visit we started with mackerel escabeche, aubergine caviar and Lilliput capers. For main course we enjoyed hake with braised fennel, cauliflower purée and curried shrimps – the latter providing the perfect lightly spiced finish to a beautifully cooked piece of fish! The meal continued on a high with burnt custard with orange cake and spiced orange segments.

I am certain that chef Adebola will continue to pick up awards and that more and more people will become fans of his wonderful cooking!

    Where so we start…

    From the moment we walked through the door of The Chubby Castor we where greeted by a friendly and intensive member of staff, in which we found extremely pleasant. The service was delivered with pure professionalism and we truly felt they couldn’t do enough to ensure our time there was fulfilled.
    From the starter, through to the main course was simply amazing, everything was truly cooked and delivered with sheer passion. The food was some of the best we have had the pleasure of eating…. The Madeira sauce was Devine and complemented the dishes superbly. It was such a lovely touch for the Adeobe to take time to talk with you his diners to see what they thought of their experience whilst dining at this amazing restaurant. We where delighted with the entire evening and will soon to make another visit.
    We highly recommend anyone who appreciates fine dining to visit The Chubby Castor

    Really enjoyed our visit to the Chubby Castor, the staff were engaging, friendly and helpful. The Al a carte menu was packed with quality ingredients, it made choosing difficult because I could have eaten all of them, the choices we made did not disappoint very well cooked and good flavour. Liked the idea of selecting the number of cheeses you want from the menu and all washed down with some nice wines, a very good evening and nice atmosphere.
