Update: November 2015.
Haven’t looked in for a few years but happened to glance at their website recently and it seems they’ve given themselves something of a makeover as more of a pizza joint. Beers appear to have been pruned back to a couple of Charlie Wells’ bog standard casks and two unspecified guests plus a couple of Wells’ "craft" offerings - i.e. the underwhelming DNA & the Dry Hopped Lager, which I haven’t tried (or seen) yet. I imagine I’ll peg back the score a bit on account of this if I ever pop in again.
Not the very best of the pubs in the Mill Road quarter but it’s a pleasant enough place and the first you come to after leaving the railway station so worth a peek. Comfortable and laid back. Eight handpumps although it’s now a Charles Wells house so there are a few of their beers (Bombardier, Eagle etc) but a couple of guests too. Crones Cider from Norfolk is always on tap. Was actually owned by CAMRA many moons ago. Quiet on a midweek lumchtime when I visited with Pat (oh6gdx).

The Salisbury Arms is a good enough boozer. You can get the standard Charles Wells beers here, but they don’t carry that much else of interest. The food is good, and it’s certainly friendly, but only worth including if you’re on a Mill Road crawl.

Once a pub owned by CAMRA Investnents then trolling through the decades until it becomes a regional-industrial place with a few very slightly off centre ales. The UK beer problem writ large.

Nice old fashioned back street bar.

Decent pub overall. Plenty of Young’s offerings on tap, plus a few other randoms. Friendly staff, fair prices. On a Saturday evening the place is quite busy. There’s nothing here to draw the hardcore beer geek, but if you’re crawling around Cambridge you might as well stop here; there could be a tick for you.

The first place to visit when you’re coming from the railway station. A very frendly landlord. Wells beers on tap. I also had St Austell Proper Job 4,5% (2010,2011).

OK pub. Used to have good food, dunno if the quality’s still as good. Very much tied to wells/youngs beers, which are boring nowadays. the guest ales aren’t so novel or exciting. Catering for the average man, not the extreme RBian.

I visited here on Friday 3rd June 2011. This is another pub off of the Mill Rd and along with the Live & Let Live, Cambridge Blue and a few others this area is really the decent area to go drinking in Cambridge. Beers are from the Wells & Youngs stable but with one or two guests. A friendly place with a good selection of beers (I counted eight handpumps) and v.close to the Live & Let Live
