CB4 is sizzling at the moment, with excellent little food and drink spots popping up all around the neighbourhood – and there’s now another reason to visit (or celebrate, if Chesterton is home!).
The Waterman, which reopened last month after a major refurbishment and under new management, is now serving up great food and drink in a super hip setting with an awesome outside seating area – and you can even stay over in one of their eight bedrooms if you need a bed for the night.
It’s the latest outpost from the rapidly expanding City Pub Company, who also run favourites like the Cambridge Brew House and the Old Bicycle Shop. Inside, there’s comfy furniture, cool art (by We Three Club) and a menu serving up a mix of pub classics and more refined à la carte offerings. Expect nibbly finger food, gourmet burgers, sharing platters, superfood salads and a smattering of elegant gastronomic dishes.
You’ll be able to wash it down with craft beers and ciders, plus an eclectic range of wines and spirits. The courtyard outside is a dream of a setting for a few pints on a sunny afternoon, or you can cosy up in The Potting Shed if the weather turns.
There’s lots of events in the offing, including pop-up cocktail clubs, open mic nights and quizzes – plus key sporting events will be screened via their HD projector and screen.
