As an old coaching inn, Parker’s Tavern has been a meeting spot for over a hundred years. The inventiveness of our cocktail list is matched only by a famously well-stocked wine cellar. Then and now, the Bar is a place where meetings are concluded with a round of drinks, where stories are told late into the evening in the company of friends and stiff nightcaps.
Cambridge has given the world more great literature per square mile than perhaps any other city on earth. In their time, preeminent authors have paced along every side street, canal path and cobbled courtyard. Afternoon tea at Parker’s Tavern is inspired by the city’s literary legacy, inflected with a maverick chef’s creative passion. Amongst the bookshelves and shades of Cambridge blue, waiters come laden with trays of savouries and jaunty cakes.
