The old Don Pasquale restaurant in Cambridge’s market square could get a new lease of life under plans submitted to Cambridge City Council.

They envisage turning the grade II-listed building in Market Hill into a new restaurant, with a cafe, bar and cookery school, to be called Market House.

The owners of Don Pasquale, the Benedetto family, confirmed in June 2020 that they would not reopen the traditional Italian restaurant following the lockdown. The property had been put up for sale the year before.

The request for planning permission to refurbish the site and open a new restaurant has now been submitted by Jinzhao Li.

The application says there would be a tea room in the basement, a cafe and casual dining on the ground floor, a restaurant and bar on the first floor, private dining and a cookery school on the second floor, and office space on the third floor.

It says: “The design has been sensitively approached with consideration of adjacent properties fully in mind from the outset.”
