Off the beaten track in Cambridge, the Petersfield has games, great grub, a cute garden and a gorgeous vibe.
On the corner of a residential street in the south-east of the city, 15 minutes from Cambridge station is what could be the perfect neighbourhood pub, where all visitors will receive a warm welcome and a cold drink.
The Petersfield sprang up in 2017 and has fast become a locals favourite. Games are piled up on the window sill, the interior is warmly decorated in navy blues and wood tones, and there is a quirky garden area with a rather fab mural of the area. The Sunday quiz nights are super fun and tables are always booked well in advance. There are also film nights and burger nights too!
Food is classy and a step up from a lot of pub grub – with starters such as seared scallops, crispy pork belly, burnt apple puree, sweetcorn and samphire as a good example of the sophistication level. Mains include burgers and fish and chips but also might have the odd braised ox cheek, Thai curry, or pan-fried fresh fish. Sunday roasts are really very good, big portions and tender meat and you can share – beef rib or a whole chicken…. and take some home if you can’t manage it all. Easy to while away the afternoon here with Bloody Mary’s served in lovely crystal glasses, plenty of quaffable wines and beers, good games and a friendly crowd.
