Cambridge is a foodie mecca, so new establishments need to have something special to offer. Fortunately, The Architect has managed to take a well-loved British establishment, the fi sh and chips bar, and reinvent it in a way that’s tactful and stylish. Here, the clue is in the name; with diners able to design their own meal, the owners really set themselves apart. As a fan of tradition, I wanted to try the beer-battered haddock, as this would be the ultimate test for any good fish and chip bar. Quality was delivered in spades, and the fish was full of flavour. I chose a side of buttered samphire, which offset the richness of the fish perfectly while providing crunch. My wife chose roast chicken, ham hock and leek pie, which was crammed with filling, and once it had been demolished she couldn’t manage another morsel. The meat was deliciously flavourful, while the pastry was just as it should be: light and crispy. The grain mustard mash was fluffy and accompanied the pie wonderfully. After polishing off rhubarb crumble with ice cream, we were left full to the brim with satisfaction, safe in the knowledge that we will defi nitely be back to make our way through the craft beer range and selection of gin, which includes more than 20 varieties.
