If the Burleigh Arms isn’t on your foodie hit list, you’re missing out. The team behind this friendly gastropub has made it a one-stop-shop for great food, top-notch beer and excellent service, which can all be enjoyed in light and airy laid-back surrounds.
Real ales are supplied by local brewer Charles Wells and include firm favourites Bombardier, Young’s Special and Black Sheep; on a sunny day, there’s no better place to enjoy a pint than in the delightful patio garden. The extensive gin menu is complemented by a wine list offering 20 wines and Prosecco by the glass, and there’s even a cocktail or two.
A menu of comforting dishes takes the lead when it comes to food – it comes as no surprise that Burleigh Arms has a legion of fans among Cambridge’s foodies. You will find staple dishes such as sirloin steak ciabatta and the homemade veggie bean burger with halloumi and wild mushrooms. The kitchen team creates daily specials such as pan-fried whole sea bream, and two-way confit duck with root vegetables and bubble and squeak. The Sunday roast is also a must.
Those in the mood for a selection of nibbles alongside a perfectly pulled pint can graze on treats such as fresh haddock goujons and marinated halloumi, as well as the Burleigh platters; be warned that one visit to this gastro delight is never enough.
