Cambridge Chop House 10th birthday

The Cambridge Chop House celebrated its 10th birthday by a special purchase of Syrah sold at £16 per bottle instead of £26. I’ve been going there since it opened on King’s Parade in Cambridge, and have had many excellent meals over the years.

This time I began with salted beef served with piccalilli and crisp-bread, and went on to a main course of 8ox sirloin steak, done medium rare as requested, served with a wholegrain mustard sauce, a mixed salad and coleslaw.

This was enough for me, but my companion managed a selection of ice-creams and sorbets while I finished off the Syrah.
