"The pick of Grantchester pubs"

A review of The Rupert Brooke by Andrew written on Tuesday 23rd of September 2008


If you are looking for well-cooked food in Grantchester, the Rupert Brooke sets a high standard and, importantly, is consistent.

Seated by the serving hatch in the elegant and relaxed restaurant portion of this place, I had an excellent opportunity to watch the chefs prepare their creations. After some smoked nuts (which tasted only salted) we ordered two haddock and chips. Only one was left, but they obligingly battered and fried a flounder from elsewhere in the menu instead.

Fresh, meaty (in the case of the haddock) fish, feather-light beer batter, crisp chips and mushy peas tasting, for once, vividly of peas. Home-made tartare sauce with a rich, smooth mayonnaise. This is fish and chips elevated to a high level. A fine summer fruit Eton Mess too. All washed down with a delicious guest bitter: excellent stuff..
