Big, fairly opulent Wetherspoons in the city centre. This used to be the old picture house, which explains the size and decor. Despite its inherent beauty, itís still kitted out in typical JDW fashion. Staff can be anywhere from openly surly to simply lovely. Beer selection can be disappointing, and itís more expensive than a JDWís should be. But this is Cambridge. There are far, far better pubs in the city, but whether youíre a townie, commuter, student or tourist, chances are youíll end up eschewing better places for the Regalís location.

Large cinema conversion Wetherspoon over two levels with plenty of seats and tables in an open plan environment. The ground floor bar serves ales over two rows but the smaller upstairs bar holds little interest those hunting craft. The decor and style are traditional and very familiar for Wetherspoon pubs but no less comfortable for it. At the rear of the building is a patio area also on two levels.

Decent enough selection for a Spoons, but rather nice opening hours, especially at weekends.

Wetherspoon selection, Greene King and Adnams beers. My choice was Banks & Taylor Mad Hatter 4,2% (2010).

Quite good selection of ales, staff was quite quick. Upstairs area is nice. Anyway if I didnít stay in hotel near Regal, I wouldnít visit this pub. Too crowded for me.

Have visited here frequently most recently in March 2012 (I think) though we did pop in here on Saturday 14th April 2012 but the place was heaving with those watching the Grand National so bar far too busy and a quick visit to the loos was all we could be bothered with. Like many JDWís this suffers from poor lighting and a distinct lack of natural light, this is one of my greatest criticisms of a JDW pub. The beer selection is usually pretty good in here and there is often a smattering of locally sourced beers. Food service was very swift on my last visit and beer well kept. This is a very large JDW and one that is easy to find from the centre of town.

Not the worst Wetherspoons Iíve been in. A decent selection of real ale, standard JDW food and a little outdoor smoking area. Upstairs seating area is the nicest part IMO.

I really like this pub, and itís not often I say that about a íSpoons. Once a 1930ís cinema, it has been symathetically converted to a large, airy pub, without losing the retro charm, even down to the typical old-fashioned cinema doors. I remember going to the flicks in places like this in Southampton in the sixties. Beer selection was excellent, breakfast was fast and cheap. Also, being early, I had the palce to myself.

New cellar master (mistress) since 2010 - completely unrecognisable beer-quality-wise from what it was like in the past. (Was the 2nd worst spoons ever, now probably the best spoons, IMHO.).
Pucker value tasty meals as in all JDWs. Constantly changing beers - 2-3 regular real ales, and 6-8 continually changing ones. Every one (out of 10 or more) we had was in tip-top condition, and youíre guaranteed a couple of new beers each day due to the turnover. (Previously, it would be 9 fucked up ones out of 10, for reference.)
A real positive contribution to the Cambridge beer map. Donít go there during amateursí nights, if you can help it, itís a bit noisy. Fortunately, the 3am closing time thins out the drinking, so thereís no mad rush at 10-ish.
