This was our first visit to The Varsity and it won't be the last. Warmly greeted and served. Outstanding food. Excellent wine recommendation. Service was attentive but low key, staff friendly and knowledgeable. Three course meal on a Saturday lunchtime, great value for money, an exceptionally good experience. Highly recommended.

The restaurant has a quiet and nice atmosphere. It is great to be able to dine and talk without loud music or loud voices. The service was excellent and the food was delicious.

We celebrate our little’s girl Birthday at the weekend. We’ve never been before only booked after reading the reviews.
Had now idea what gem I was about to find. Food was exquisite, atmosphere perfect and the gentleman looking after us was so accommodating and absolutely amazing with us and our children. I honestly cannot speak high enough. Thank you so much.

Great Place to have an earlier dinner, staters were excellent. The 2 vegetarian risotto's were very good. I had the cannons of beef which were disappointing, very toughened the pomme anna was not good. This is a shame because the rest was very good and I would go back just not have the beef

Whilst the food was generally good, there were some issues. I requested my duck pink, and instead of rendering out the fat at a low temperature, the chef seemed to flash fry it, leaving large, thick veins of fat running through it, making it inedible.

On the whole, it was a good experience. The only suggestion I would make would be to close the door immediately when someone walks in as the draft was painfully cold every time someone came in and the door was left open for whole minutes at a time.

Very easy to reserve a table with OpenTable. Service was excellent; same waitress throughout our meal. Lovely, modern and understated stylish decoration. Food was made with great ingredients, was well prepared and was beautifully presented; however, our verdict was that the flavours and combinations were interesting rather than delicious. That's just our opinion, and I'm sure others would disagree, but there you go. Menu choice was small but quite varied, including some pretty decent vegetarian options. A la carte prices I thought were a little expensive, but the pre-theatre option offers excellent value.

Ate here for an anniversary meal after a visit to Cambridge, the restaurant was empty but it was a Sunday evening and quite early and later another couple had arrived. Waiting staff were friendly and helpful and the food was great and reasonably priced for the quality. Food arrived in a good timely manner. All in all a lovely evening and a restaurant I'd return to next time I was in Cambridge.

We were in a little upstairs room. It was full (8) but quiet perhaps the customers were chosen for their potential to talk rather than shout! A lovely relaxed evening with good veggie food.
