At Parker’s Tavern, every dish is a whimsical re-imagining of a British classic, sourced from field, fen and England's seas. This is where you will find plates piled high with Norfolk fruits de mer or suckling pig with wild mushrooms, and our special spaghetti bolognese. You can taste England on every plate.


6:30AM - 10AM


Breakfast is an exclusive affair, for our guests only, served in Parker’s Tavern Dining Room, amidst bespoke panelling and the steam of hand-roasted grounds rising from burnished coffee pots. You can also take things easy and have breakfast delivered to the Library. The menu is classic Cambridge, from a full English with free-range Cambridgeshire eggs, Newmarket sausages and bacon, to pastries and sticky buns from a local bakery.




Lunch at Parker’s Tavern can be simple and low-key, a moment of culinary comfort in the busiest day. The kitchen source the season’s freshest produce for every dish — from farmer, market, fisherman and gamekeeper, all within easy reach of Cambridge. In the hazy Cambridge summer that means well-stuffed sandwiches and hearty salads. As autumn draws in, it’s the turn of warming root vegetables and organic, grass-fed steaks in soups, stews and rustic casseroles.


6PM - 9.30PM


The evening is when Parker’s feasting legacy truly comes into its own. Plates of suckling pig and fresh Norfolk seafood emerge from the Parker’s kitchen, as diners indulge in a whimsical interpretation of Great British comfort foods. Every dish on the menu comes with a carefully chosen wine recommendation from the Parker’s Tavern sommelier. Our formidable cellar is at our diners’ disposal, with a vintage to match every depth of flavour and individual palate.

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.
