This used to be my local for a time, with a donkey box snug,forgivably vile tolilets, tiny open fire, multiple hanpulls and a series of characterful landlords. Changing it was a major gamble but the block of fridges at the entrance that has replaced even the beloved snug is a triumph of daring over solidity. Excellent beer list, now expanded to all styles. Must be 150+ beers. Hope it works.

Visit this pub every couple of weeks when visiting my daughter. It really is Beer Heaven with it’s extensive range of real ales. Now over 2000 different real ales since the landlords took over in October 2007. Food could be improved.

Paid timely visit last night, great to see the pub unchanged. Wonderfully cosy, welcoming backstreet pub, intimate and friendly. Great range of up to ten well-kept ales often from local small-to-micro breweries, and good homecooked food. Staff friendly and jovial, and the pub attracts a relaxed, easy-going clientele. This is a MUST visit pub. If you are visiting Cambridge by train, make this the last pub you visit and the one in which you spend the longest.

Have been a number of time over the years most recently was on Sat 3rd Oct 2009. As ever there is always a really solid selection of Cask Ales, at a guess I’d say about ten at any one time and usually its a fairly interesting and diverse choice. Very good selection of Belgian, USA and other world beers that is probably only matched (maybe bettered for the Belgian range) by the equally excellent Live and Let Live. Friendly, knowledgeable staff, pleasant garden though now mostly laid to slabs or cobbles as I recall from my last venture out there in June. The Mill Road area of Cambridge is pretty much the be all and end all area for anyone visiting this lovely city and this is certainly one of the major highlights there. UPDATE 2012 We’ve been here quite a few more time over the last few years in fact I would say that we get here at least 3-4 times a year. I went in March 2012 and again on Sat 14th 2012 and the place has had a slight facelift with the gents toilets being relocated providing a little more width in the bar area and six further handpumps on the front bar which show what beers are available on gravity in the tap room. De Molen has also been added to the keg selection and the bottled beer choice also seems to be growing. A very good pub that is getting even better.

One of the best places to have real ales in Cambridge. A good selection (30.6.2010).

Great locals pub a bit off the beaten track in Cambridge. A good, constantly rotating, selection of cask ales. During the beer festival, a tent is set up outside to host a lot more beer. Seating runs out fairly quickly outside on a sunny day. The food is hearty and tasty.

Why aren’t more pubs like this. At the blue they realise that people go there to drink & so they have a great selection of good beer on draught & in the bottle. Not much in the way of mass produced, well marketed bland stuff, but loads of finely made flavoursome beers. Food is solid pub fare, the staff are friendly & they have some cracking beer festivals where the garden turns into a big tent of beer delights.

A great back street pub with an amazing array of cask and bottle beers; most of the casks being on gravity. Good atmosphere and (seemingly) good food.
