We offer these traditional British favourites on a design your own menu to give these much loved British classics a modern twist (should you choose to) or just stick with the classic combinations that have been enjoyed for generations.
To compliment our food we have a wide range of real ales craft beers and over 20 gins to choose from.
The staff were fantastic. Friendly, helpful and charming.
The food unfortunately was just, alright. Nothing specifically wrong with it, just very forgettable.
Also the place also had one of my bete noire - sticky tables.
The food was soooo delicious and the pies were amazing! Anyone coming to Cambridge, definitely pop in!!!
As a chippy not amazing, average tasting batter on the fish and the chips were not amazing. Had to send the roasted root veg back as far too dried out. However, the steak and ale pie was tasty but the coconuty gravy was too watery and overall the place is too expensive for what you get. Try the Sea tree on Mill Road for a much better experience and value for money.
I was quite looking forward to going as it was in the top 10 places to eat in cambridge. There were lots of people there so was quite busy, it had a good atmosphere and there was lots of people eating. We all had the steak and ale pie, my self and our son had pie and chips and my husband had pie and mash. My husband finished his first and myself and our son was still eating as the pie was dry and you had to have gravy with it, the chips were over cooked and the peas were under cooked. If feel quite bad in being honest and writing this but i have to be truthful, i would maybe go again and try the fish next time
Very nice location close to kettles yard. Lovely attentive staff excellent food ( large portions ) and excellent vfm. Good choices of beer and wine
My friends and I had a fabulous time here. The food was amazing, the service was excellent and the atmosphere was brilliant.
Would definitely recommend.
Great atmosphere, lovely food and good service.
My only criticism would be too little custard for the dessert. However, this was easily rectified when I requested more custard.
The food at the Architect was excellent and we liked the way you could choose inclusive sauces / sides etc
Really nice casual atmosphere with good food. The menu is easy to understand menu and the staff are very friendly.
I've been here a few times before so I will mention that I've noticed that the standard of cleanliness is a little...hit and miss but honestly it wouldn't stop me from eating here again.
The pub specialises in Pies and Fish&Chips, all of the options we tried were tasty and satisfying to our preferences.
Treated very well, any changes or requests were attended to without issue or fuss.
Dog was treated to biscuit, milk and water as well.
Food was tasty - we tried most of the sauces - our favourites being the mustard grain, aioli and gravy.
They have a collection of self-made salts as well; the garlic and herb and curry salts being recommended.
There’s a well stocked Gin collection and Guest drinks as well.
Great experience at the Architect! I tried the vegetable, absolutely delicious. The service was reasonably fast, friendly waiter. I like the environment, simple, elegant. I will certainly go back!
Have visited The Architect a few times now and every visit has been enjoyable. The portions are good and the food is lovely with a variety of fish options to suit different tastes and palates and this has been backed up by a good service.
Have been to the Architect a number of times and just like those, this was great in terms of food and ambience. Love this place and its menu and will definitely be going back!
Really enjoyed this place - very relaxed, very casual, but with attentive staff and a quirky menu with food that delivered. The lamb and parsnip pie was a sensation!
Traditional pub food taken up a level and with good beer and excellent enthusiastic service
Really crispy batter for fish and chips and very generous portion. Friendly staff and overall a nice meal out
We had a member of our party with an unusual food allergy and our waitress was very helpful in finding something which was safe for them to eat. Very friendly and quick service and everyone had a lovely relaxed evening. The food is simple, but well done, and we liked the concept of being able to pick and mix.
I would only go back to have a drink.
The calamari was a great disappointment: tiny rings in vast quantities of batter. The chips tasted like oven chip reheated.
Really lovely, service was above and beyond. Great food and drink choices too.
Great variety of food options, friendly staff and really nice atmosphere. Had a great dinner there!
This was such a disappointing lunch. We waited an hour for our food, and kept being told it was coming in two minutes, and then waiting even longer. The atmosphere was pretty dead and the music was terrible and loud. Only the bartender seemed to be enjoying it.
This was my second visit to The Architect. Once again the service was efficient and friendly and the food was really good. This was a dinner with colleagues and they all really liked it too.
Really great food, atmosphere and service. Innovative menu good for fussy eaters AND those who like to experiment to create their own meal combo. Good value and will definitely go again.
Waiting staff very helpful and attentive. Fish and chips. Chips poor Batter on fish ok. Tartar sauce very nice
Excellent, especially our waiter. The reason the overall score is only Good is that we arrived early - about 12.20 - having booked, and ordered immediately as there were two small children in the party. We then waited for what seemed an unconscionably long time while others - who had arrived after us - were served the same food we had ordered. WHY??
Something evidently went wrong in the kitchen and this was a second visit - the first time we waited for nearly an hour. No good explanation for that either. Aren't the orders dealt with in the order they come in, as happens in most restaurants?
Our waiter saved the day by bringing the boys a sandwich and then giving them free pudding but really it was not his fault. Please get your kitchen orders better organised and then you will deserve a very good rating overall.
We have been to Architect on several occasions and enjoyed ourselves each time. We love the menu, with its fun fish and options with chips of different types and those delicious pies for meat eaters and vegetarians with their varied potato accompaniments. Each meal comes with a side and sauce which provide another range of options. So, what seems a simple choice (which it can be if you like) is a great and varied menu. The music was terrific, certainly suiting us, with chouce and mouse level. The service was efficient, friendly and knowledgeable. Great night for four friends who wanted to eat well and talk.
Lovely lunch with family. Great menu idea, with lots of choice. Friendly, helpful staff. I'll certainly be back.
Great fish and chips and super friendly staff!
Had a very tasty meal which went down a treat. Waitress very kind to bring the choices of different rums to our table. All in all very good service.
Met our friends who were over from Australia. Great food, attentive service and lovely atmosphere. Will definitely be back
The waiter is super nice. The fish and chips are delicious.
Very good upscale fish and chips and pies with lots of cooking options and sides plus specials. Decent drinks prices with excellent range of beers and friendly, although slow, service in buzzy (going on noisy) gastropub-style setting.
Family visiting Cambridge!
Go hungry as the portions are large. Good range of craft beers and a small but perfectly formed wine list. Fun putting your own meal ideas together. Staff were outstanding. Would recommend for lunch and dinner.
Very attentive waiter. Fish excellent (Panko covered haddock) - vegetarian pie not so good. But overall good value for money in central Cambridge. Portion sizes a bit too large. Convenient local car parking available just behind the building.
First visit. Excellent food freshly cooked. Service very good, friendly and efficient. Will certainly recommend and return.
Went on a whim and very glad we did. We don’t have fish & chips very often so it was a lovely treat. Great to be able to choose batter as well as fish and veg options. We were too full to attempt dessert. Nice gin selection to wash it down. Friendly attentive staff
