A monthly round-up of delicious happenings around Cambridgeshire

NEW OPENING! BEAN THEORY Excitement is brewing for the launch of Bean Theory, a new indie coffee house in Newnham opening this month. A cosy, quirky hangout within walking distance of the Backs, the venue will serve speciality coffee roasted in-house, cakes from Stir Bakery and a locally sourced menu, offering a relaxed setting for all. Founder Ben Griggs said, “We can’t wait to bring a true community hub to the area, somewhere for everyone to gather. We’re focusing on third-wave coffee – sourced for its quality, taste and complexity. A great coffee to have or take away for your stroll across the Mill Pond is at the heart of our offering.” Watch this space!

Fit for a king! Bedford Lodge Hotel & Spa is embracing the spirit of the King’s coronation with a royal-inspired afternoon tea, running 3-7 May. Curated with His Majesty in mind, this celebratory spread gives nods to Charles’ favourite foods, incorporating treats from across the British Isles. Expect dainty finger sandwiches, warm-from-the-oven scones, sweet treats and baked savouries – all to be enjoyed while overlooking the hotel’s manicured gardens and sunny courtyard – priced at £28 per person. Bedford Lodge’s Squires Restaurant is also getting in on the fun with a King’s coronation Sunday lunch. A banquet fit for a king, the three-course bespoke menu created by chef Lee Cooper uses the finest locally sourced ingredients, delivering a traditional smoked mackerel paté with a Jersey Royal potato salad, roast sirloin of beef with potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and red wine jus, as well as Mrs Temples’ Binham Blue cheese with poached rhubarb and sourdough crisps (£45 per person).
