Alpha St Kitchen and Bar, Cambridge

Sunday Lunch July 12

National Hotel Cambridge


The restaurant is located in the historic National Hotel in the heart of Cambridge, adjacent to the Town Hall and overlooking the Town Clock.
The original hotel on the corner of Alpha Street & Lake Street was The Alpha Hotel, built in 1866 and destroyed by fire in 1912. The current version of the National Hotel ("The Nash" to Cambridge locals) was originally built in 1913 and, with a few modifications over the decades, has retained its elegant art deco style.

The quiet elegance and generous dimensions of the building enhance the contemporary, relaxed style of the restaurant. For decades the National Hotel has been pivotal in the social life of the residents of Cambridge. Alpha Street Kitchen & Bar carries on the tradition of a welcoming place to meet at any time of the day. www.alphast.co.nz
