Welcome to the Varsity Restaurant

Cambridge's oldest restaurant has had a thoroughly modern makeover. A neighbourhood restaurant nestled in the heart of the city, the Varsity is the perfect spot for a pit stop lunch or an intimate dinner.

The restaurant still retains its old Cambridge charm, the building is listed and has a unique history (Sonia and Rajiv Ghandi met here). The dining space is now sleek and elegant and the food has been updated too, offering a fresh take on a classic bistro menu. The ingredients are seasonal and locally sourced wherever possible.

Our mission is simple:

To deliver a great fresh plate of food, served by friendly, knowledgeable staff in a warm and inviting atmosphere.
