Revitalised and reopened in October 2014, The Rupert Brooke is now a stylish pub and restaurant to be found in the pretty Cambridgeshire village of Grantchester, nestled alongside the river Cam, just a couple of miles from the centre of Cambridge. Grantchester is a popular haunt for students and tourists of the university city as they can walk along the "Grantchester Grind", the river path that runs from Cambridge alongside the Grantchester meadows or even arrive by punt. The pub is named after the English poet known for his idealistic war sonnets, who at one time lived at the Old Vicarage and immortalised the residence in a poem written in 1912 in Berlin.

Food & Drink

The Rupert Brooke is all about serving excellent food and drink. We use local produce and suppliers wherever possible and change our menus regularly to reflect seasonal changes and culinary inspiration of the Head Chef and the shared talent of the wider Chestnut Inns group under Executive Chef Chris Lee. The Rupert Brooke is run by a team with a true passion for what they do – giving their visitors, tourists and locals alike, a truly enjoyable eating and drinking experience.
