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.
Great service, great food.
Rly lovely food, waiters were all rly friendly, definalty would go again.
First time visit, very pleased. Set menu was good value and food was very good. Nice atmosphere and pleasant staff. Will go again.
Excellent value for money. Staff were courteous, friendly and attentive, without being over bearing. The food was stunning and plentiful.
Arrived on time at 4:30pm. Lovely and quiet venue. Phenomenal service and food. Loved it. Can’t wait to return
Lovely little restaurant. Good food great service, great value.
Pre theatre dinner. Good service and good food
Superb hospitality; pleasant, relaxing ambience and delicious food. Perfect!
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
Excellent staff, food and atmosphere. Small pre dinner men8u that covers a wide variety of tastes or the A La Carte menu. Very good.
Great service. Set lunch was great value and super food. Highly recommend
Lovely little restaurant- we were looking for good food in a 5*relaxed restaurant & that is what we found 😊
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.
Visited with a friend has a lovely meal. Verty tasty starter and very good cod cooked perfectly lots if it an could be not eating it all
Shared a desserts with a friend.
Always good, friendly staff definitely would recommend
Superb food and service. Excellent value for money too.
Service and food wonderful as always!
We had an amazing time’ the food, ambiance and wine were great.
I think we were last to leave having consumed 3+ bottles of Bordeaux.
A relaxing, fun amazing evening
Had a very good meal. Food was delicious and the service was second to none. I particularly enjoyed the Sunday roast. The beef was cooked perfectly. Good choice of drinks too. Heartily recommend this restaurant.
Excellent service! Wonderful service! Got honey and lemon cause I had a cold! Couldn't have asked for better x We loved it x
Had a fabulous Christmas Lunch. Really enjoyed all the food. Would definatley recommend it
Nice place, food well presented, but I wasn't overly impressed with the flavours and most items were over seasoned.
Very nice service, wine, environment
Great for a business Christmas Lunch. Food was appreciated by all and relaxed, leisurely pace of service was just right. A little gem in the heart of Cambridge.
Really lovely waiting staff - so efficient -
and food was absolutely delicious. Wine very reasonable too. Great place to eat.
We chose the set lunch menu which was very tasty and good 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.
Superb food and service. First time we had been. The menu choice was good and would like to revisit.
nice ambiance, consistently good food, professional staff
Good choice of food on the menu. Food was very tasty and portions were good. Service was very good in terms of timing and staff were very friendly
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.
Very friendly service and warm welcome. Great food, well-presented. Atmosphere was lively without being noisy. Loved it!
Even though ordered trout, salmon was on the plate. Regardless it was cooked perfectly. Poor beer selection.
This is a must for a visit in Cambridge! We couldn't fault the food, it was all delicious. We picked from the pre theatre menu which had great choices and amazing value for money. Staff were very attentive and recommended us some great cocktail bars to go to after. Would highly recommend.
Went with two friends for lunch. Food beautifully presented and tasted great. Staff warm and welcoming. I considered the cost to be very reasonable. Would definitely recommend.
I’ve been here a couple of times - always a lovely lunch here.
They were very accommodating to my dairy free request. Fantastic service.
