Really nice food. The borscht was great! The restaurant is really interesting itself and it feels more like going home to someone rather than visiting a restaurant, which I really liked :)

Walked in without a booking. The place was packed and we were told they don't do walk ins. Made a booking for a couple of days later. Was worth the wait. They say nothing tastes as good as home cooking, and their tomato soup tastes...More

This is a small restaurant inside a Polish club - very homely, nothing fancy, but well worth a visit. The schnitzel is so light, and very tasty, and the potato pancakes are amazing. It was very busy on Sunday night we visited so reservations might...More

This is a lovely wee place with a nice atmosphere & friendly service. Unfortunately the grub was not quite up to my Polish wife’s standard & no duck on the menu which is a real surprise. We felt the grub needed a bit more spice....More

You may have tried Italian, French and Chinese foods but until you have enjoyed the best of Polish Cuisine you haven't lived! Come to the Polonia Club on Chesterton Road in Cambridge to find out how it really is.Polish Food is a relatively new phenomenon in the UK but one which is soon to as popular as popping out for an Indian on a Friday night. Pierogi, placki ziemniaczane, and many more dishes are sure to become as famous as curry, naan bread and poppadoms. Serving nothing but authentic Polish Food, the Polonia Club sources all of its food locally. Polish delicacies such as bigos, golabki and more are all on the menu for customers to try and then enjoy time after time. The extremely reasonable menu starts at just £4,50 giving everyone the opportunity to try something new for little cost. we are especially proud of our home baked bread which contains no artificial food colourings and flavourings . Poland is renowned for its alcohol and the Polonia Club brings this particular aspect of its spiritual home to Cambridge with especial vigour. An incredible range of Polish spirits and traditional vodkas are served that will put most bars and pubs to shame. 46 different types of Polish vodka are available, both pure and flavoured.Those seeking something a little lighter need not worry - 12 different Polish beers can be selected too. Especially good for parties the Club can be hired for private bookings and social events. If it's your birthday they will bake a special cake for you if advance notice is given.
