Cambridge Edition August 2020 - WEB


THE VARSITY HOTEL Cambridge’s original roof terrace experience, this stylish spot is where to head for city views with wow factor, tasty cocktails and gourmet BBQ food. Drinks range from summer favourites like Pimm’s, Aperol spritz and sangria to perfectly mixed classics like negronis and caipirinhas. MILLWORKS A brand-new addition to this riverside restaurant’s offering, Millworks’ roof terrace was revealed when the eatery reopened after lockdown. With bags of space, it’s a good spot for some socially distanced bevs, plus this Cambscuisine outpost serves a lip-smackingly good range of steaks, burgers and sharing boards – not to mention the Rupture Rapture; a giant ice-cream sundae loaded with brownies, churros and whipped cream.

THE RUPERT BROOKE Tucked away in historic Grantchester, this sleek venue cuts a strikingly modern figure and boasts a fantastic reputation for its food. The stylish terrace – added in 2014 – is the icing on the cake, offering a gorgeous spot for afternoon tea or lunch looking out across the thatched rooftops and rolling fields of the surrounding countryside. DE LUCA ROOF TERRACE Boasting great views across Parker’s Piece, this fairy-lit terrace is one of the city centre’s best-kept secrets. There’s an extensive cocktail list to make your way through, as well as indulgent Italian dishes aplenty. The restaurant is also taking part in the government- backed ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ offer on Wednesdays, so snap up a bargain!

NOVI With botanical cocktails, lush foliage and fragrant tabletop herb pots, the roof terrace at Novi is a treat for the senses. It’s ideal for summer, but come winter, it’s cleverly transformed into a cosy tipi den, complete with outdoor heaters, sheepskins and cosy blankets.
