Middletons Steakhouse & Grill to open new restaurant in Cambridge


We’re delighted to announce we will be opening a new restaurant in Cambridge in time for this year’s Christmas festivities.

A long-awaited ambition to launch a restaurant in the city will be realised when our newest home opens on Monday December 7, 2020 – subject to Government guidelines around coronavirus. 

To celebrate the news, a 50% discount offer will be available on food during the first week of soft openings.

Jobs boost for Cambridge

An investment of around £500,000 in the project realises the aim of launching a restaurant in the city.

Over 50 jobs will also be created before Christmas to provide another boost to Cambridge and the surrounding areas.

“We are absolutely delighted,” said Stephen Hutton, managing director of Middletons Steakhouse & Grill. 

“As part of our expansion plans we’ve always wanted to come to Cambridge. It’s been our top-target city for the last six years and it’s brilliant news that we can finally open a restaurant here.”

Our new home in Bridge Street

Cambridge will be our eighth Middletons Steakhouse & Grill following on from our 2018 launch in Chelmsford. The new restaurant has a capacity of around 100 guests, allowing for social distancing, and will replace the closed Cafe Rouge in Bridge Street. 

Mr Hutton added: “We can’t wait to join Cambridge’s thriving restaurant scene.

“Our stylish casual premium steakhouse and grill will be the perfect city centre location for dining or relaxing at any time of the day. We’d like to think Middletons offers a little something for everyone and look forward to serving quality food at very reasonable prices to people of all ages and families who live in, or are visiting, Cambridge.”

Cambridge’s newest eatery has a menu that has proved popular elsewhere in the east of England and includes a range of prime steaks, a signature mixed grill, seafood and vegetarian options, along with freshly-made classic desserts.

It will sell meats carefully prepared at our own butchery in Middleton that are already served to over 10,000 customers a week in our Chelmsford, Peterborough, Leicester, Colchester, Norwich, Milton Keynes and King’s Lynn restaurants.
