Clarendon Arms

35-37 Clarendon Street, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, CB1 1JX


The Clarendon Arms in Cambridge is a city centre pub/restaurant currently operator at a 50/50 sales split. The pub offers a good quality food menu, specialising in hand cut chips and amazing Sunday Roasts. The pub is a hidden gem of Cambridge located between the parks of Parkers Piece and Christs Pieces, being just a short walk to the Grafton Centre as well as Cambridge City centre itself. The area is surrounded by housing, offices and retail. We would expect the new operator to carry on with the good food reputation with particular note to the Sunday Roasts but also look at new opportunities to build trade across other days.


Cambridge is a university city and the county town in Cambridgeshire. It is located on the River Cam approximately 55 miles north of London. The city is most famous as the home of the University of Cambridge, which was founded in 1209 and consistently ranks among the best universities in the world.

BDM Portrait

I am looking for someone who will be able to build on the fabulous food and ales that are served here and at the same time put their own mark on what is a lovely pub in a great location. This is a lovely city centre pub which would suit a chef/patron or even a single person or couple who either have experience or a looking to run their first pub.
