Newmarket

  • Newmarket is traditionally not a good location for food, however The Fountain Chinese Restaurant is still one of the most reliable venues (01638 666255), but has been rather left behind by more Authentic Chinese restaurants in Cambridge such as the excellent Seven Days and The Chinese Canteen.
  • Pub grub in the surrounding villages can be better including The Merry Monk at Isleham (01638 780900), The Dyke’s End Inn at Reach (01638 743816), The Red Lion at Cheveley (01638 730233), The Packhorse Inn at Moulton (01638 751818) and The Kings Head at Dullingham (01638 507702).
  • Maison Bleu (01284 760623) and Pea Porridge (01284 700200) in the nearby Bury St Edmunds are very good and Midsummer House in Cambridge (01223 369299) is the nearest Michelin star you will find.
