Parker's Tavern Brasserie Cambridge

Cambridge's Finest Restaurant

A quintessentially English brasserie restaurant, offering homely British classics with some characterful reinterpretations.

Every dish is a gutsy re-imagining of a British classic, sourced from field, fen and England’s seas.

The Restaurant

Borne of feasting, yet of our time, our restaurant is a meeting place, a confluence of old and new, where university hall meets velvet-upholstered club. From early in the morning until late at night, Parker’s Tavern hums with conversation, with waiters carrying plates piled high with delicious food.

The Produce

Our chef sources not simply by season, but by what’s fresh each day. He doesn’t just rely on local markets, but on produce from farmers he knows by name. Cambridgeshire field and fen supply the ingredients, conjured into whimsical dishes delivered with serious technique.

"Mother Nature sets the tone. It’s why I hope you will keep coming back. For mutton puddings and game pies in winter, for the scent of wild garlic as spring begins."
