dArry’s is located in King Street, Cambridge

For the third blog post in my series on roof terrace bars to be found in Cambridge, we headed for dArry’s Liquor Loft and Restaurant this week. I’ve been intending to seek out this popular venue since the loft space and roof terrace opened at dArry’s last year. I had also realised that it’s been over two years since we had last eaten at dArry’s restaurant so I was pleased to find that on Tuesdays they still have Steak Night. Regulars readers of my blog will know that my partner Steve loves a steak, but I invariably choose a fish or veggie main course.IMG_20170725_2027147 (2).jpgIMG_0812.JPG

I enjoyed sharing Steve’s starter of Padron Peppers pan flashed with sea salt, which were delicious

For my dessert, I couldn’t resist the pretty presentation of the white and dark chocolate fondant with dipped strawberries

It came as no surprise that Steve chose the cheese board accompanied by a glass of Reisling!

dArray’s certainly has a lot to offer punters! For example, I liked the idea of the Private Dining available in their Wine Shop

At dArry’s restaurant the service was friendly, professional and prompt and prices were very reasonable. The menu could be described as modern British with a Mediterranean feel and we paid £25 a head for 3 courses without drinks and service. The addition of the Liquor Loft and roof terrace to dArry’s sheltered courtyard area offers even more opportunity for al fresco dining in the summer months. Bookings are only taken for large parties but they can usually seat walk-ins. dArry’s is an attractive cocktail bar and eatery with distinctive design features which also offers a wide range of events from live music to wine tasting. So lots of reasons to make a return visit and I’m more than happy to recommend it!
