Pancake perfection

Two top tasty ideas for pancake day on 5 March 

This year’s Pancake Day falls on Tuesday 5 March and, if you want to get in on the fun, we recommend a visit to The Petersfield on Sturton Street. If you’ve tried their brunch, you’ll know this pub never fails to turn out perfect pancakes. They’re going all out with stacks of delicious sweet or savoury toppings, including fresh blueberries and Nutella. If you’re feeling competitive, order yourself a stack of 16: if you manage to get through this batter-y behemoth, it’s on the house!

Love gin? Then celebrate Shrove Tuesday with a flipping delicious evening of pancakes and gin at Cambridge Wine Merchants’ Cherry Hinton Road branch. At a special edition of CWM’s Gin Club, guests will get to try four fab gins, accompanied by tasty, freshly cooked pancakes from the kitchen (including one gin-themed number!). Tickets are £15 from Eventbrite.
