Town and gown meet at this iconic central Cambridge landmark. The Oak Bistro began as a coaching inn where many tired travellers rested as they explored the city. Today, the Grade II listed building is a charming independent bistro that attracts locals and visitors from around the globe.

The decor is contemporary but classic. Think understated elegance punctuated by the work of local artist Nicholas Juett, crisp white linen, delicate glassware and fresh flowers. It’s the perfect environment to talk business over lunch with no distractions or to lunch at leisure. Flickering candlelight and soft music in the evening makes it a suitable spot for a romantic dinner or special date night dinner. This dining room is chic and stylish without trying too hard, and has been designed to delight.

Philip Newman, who opened the restaurant in 2009, carefully creates the inspired wine list, which is eclectic and includes some surprises that even the most discerning wine lover will enjoy. The menu is classic bistro style, with local produce providing a Cambridgeshire touch to the work of the head chef and his international team. Each delightful dish is fresh, seasonal and beautifully presented, and the team is happy to cater to special dietary requirements. The friendly service aims to make you feel special every time you visit The Oak Bistro; it’s a place for celebrations, making good memories and sharing stories.
