‘Simple and honest’ fare promised at new Cambridge restaurant Garden House
Reservations are now open for Garden House, the new restaurant within the Graduate Cambridge hotel.
Opening on September 10, the restaurant – in Granta Place, Mill Lane – is taking bookings via gardenhousecambridge.co.uk. Adam Wood, formerly of London’s award-winning Perilla, will lead the kitchen.
He said: “We want to focus on using the best ingredients. I’ve worked in kitchens for 10 years now – in some of the best kitchens in London – and I’ve gone away from the idea of having lots of things on the plate, or having lots of technique involved.
“I want it to be simple, honest cooking that serves the best ingredients, cooked over fire. To me, there’s nothing better than having a barbecue with your friends, or sitting around a table and sharing a big whole fish, or sharing a big cut of meat, or whatever it is – that communal fire-led, sharing concept for me is the best way to eat, and I want to bring that feeling to the Garden House.”
Graduate Cambridge will also include the Garden Bar, a large, oval bar, as well as a café and flexible gathering space.
