Cambridge Cookery is an independent neighbourhood meeting place, a relaxing hub of seriously good food, coffee, wine & cocktails, local and organic from the finest suppliers.

We use only the finest, locally sourced, sustainable ingredients to create lovingly crafted, homemade dishes with a strong Scandinavian and Italian influence.

We are open Tuesday-Sunday for breakfast, brunch and lunch, and Friday and Saturday evenings for dinner with Michelin starred chef, Mark Poynton. In addition, we open on occasional other evenings for dinners hosted by our own talented chefs.

Neighbourhood Café

Join us in our Café for freshly baked bread, cakes and pastries, award-winning coffee, lunches and long, Sunday brunches. Our team of passionate chefs and artisan bakers use the best, seasonal ingredients to create fresh, delicious food throughout the day. Check out the menu here.

Mark Poynton restaurant

Following the success of Michelin star chef, Mark Poynton’s autumn 2019 pop-ups, he will be joining Cambridge Cookery on Friday and Saturday evenings. Mark will offer two distinct concepts: a short 3-course à la carte menu for £40 on Fridays and a tasting menu for £55 on Saturdays. With Mark running service in the open cookery school, guest will be seated next to Mark in a ‘chef’s table’, able to watch him work and ask him those all important questions! Call 01223 247620 to reserve a table.

Events and Wine Tastings

We regularly host dinners cooked and hosted by our own team of acclaimed chefs, as well as wine-tasting evenings, and other exciting tasting events. Our wine tastings emphasise the joy of pairing food and wine whilst teaching you about what you’re trying. To find out more about our outstanding and unusual tasting events and pop-ups – click here.

Independent, homemade & local

Cambridge Cookery is an entirely independent business. Our team of passionate chefs and artisan bakers use the finest, locally sourced, seasonal ingredients to create fresh, delicious, homemade food throughout the day. Our bread and croissants are proving and baking every day from the early hours, so that they’re ready for customers to enjoy first thing in the morning – along with a cup of our award winning coffee. We work with suppliers to source the best ingredients, always working with what’s in season. Read about our trusted suppliers here.

Dog friendly!

Cambridge Cookery is a dedicated, dog-friendly establishment! We love dogs and welcome you to bring along your furry friends to our cafe. We will even greet them with a delicious, home-made doggy biscuit, so they don’t feel left out. Our cafe looks out onto a park and we have plenty of outdoors seating if your four-legged friends prefer the fresh air!

Since Michelin starred chef Mark Poynton ⭐👨‍🍳 joined us in January we have seen bookings for his Friday and Saturday Restaurant here go through the roof 😊. Mark cooks and runs service in the open cookery school, offering guests a very relaxed and convivial Chef’s Table experience 🔅. We are now offering a small series of Master classes with Mark.

Join him, and a small group of likeminded guests, in the kitchen for an evening of hands on cooking and insights into how a chef of this calibre plans menus, creates his award winning food and how he uses various techniques. At the end of the cooking session, Mark will sit down around the table for a gourmet meal with wines chosen by Mark.

Follow the link cambridgecookery.com/cook/classes/, we are taking bookings now and this class is filling up at lightning speed.
