Cambridge Foodie: Al fresco dining in Cambridge

Enjoy the warm weather with dinner and drinks at one of the al fresco dining spots in Cambridge 

I was delighted to read that the council has just revealed a plan to change the Mill Lane area into a very nice al fresco area, which I welcome with open arms. There aren’t enough places to sit outside for my liking in Cambridge so let’s hope, the scene will be changing over the next few years.

The Varsity Hotel roof terrace

My favourite places for when the sun is out in Cambridge:

  • The Free Press Pub
  • Thirsty Beer Garden at St. Giles Church
  • The Plough in Fen Ditton
  • The Green Man in Grantchester
  • The Fort St. George (just for drinks)
