Tim Webb  (203) Cambridge, England | May 2, 2012
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.

Almost certainly the number one beer venue in Cambridge. Youíre basically guaranteed 3 new beers every day. 6 of the 12 pump clips are for hand-pull, the others show whatís on from gravicask round the back - my favourite dispense. Unfortunately, several that Iíve had there in the last few trips have been a little old. Food is excellent - I got the rarest steak Iíve had since I was in France there - and was pretty reasonably priced. Plenty of space. Prices in the UK have gone up massively since I was last there, so this last trip felt a bit expensive, but Iím sure the CBís no more expensive than any other pub in town. No matter how short the trip, you must visit this pub!

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.

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

Good range of ales, friendly ambience, food can be a bit ropy sometimes. A must visit for me when in Cambridge.

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.

Consistent back street ale house that has been particularly good on my last two visits when it has been hosting superb beer festivals. The pub has a great feel to it and outside festivals seems to stock at least 10 well rotated cask beers. A well stocked fridge of foreign bottled beers is the first thing to greet you as you enter the bar. Not to be missed on any crawl of this extremely well pubbed city.
