Great pub for locals, as their bottle selection is varied and extensive including real lambics. Real ale selection was not too exciting but good enough. Nice place overall.

Cosy pub near Mill road. After entering pub you will see huge selection of Belgian and other beers. They stock fair amount of obscure beers from not much beery countries. The tap selection was reasonable, but main spot for us was last day of Beer festival, we incidentally run in to. Excellent experience, stuff was polite and knowledgeable, recommended place. we didn’t have any meal there, only beer.

Decent selection, the fridges by the door are a novel touch. Decent, well kept beer and good service.

Maybe it was the time of day but the service and food quality were very poor. Fortunately the list of taps was amazing including a number of local breweries. Three fridges up front held a variety of international options including some nice lambics.

If the service had been a bit better I might think this was a place worth revisiting. As it is if I do make my way back to Cambridge there are other pubs just around the corner that seem much more friendly places. Give it a shot as your mileage may vary but prepare to be disappointed.

Arrived at 10:26 on Sunday 4th November after traveling from Holland to sample some Cambridge beers. However, the somewhat rude bar staff took great pride in refusing to serve me, claiming the time was 10:31. The clock above the bar was wrong. They suggested I should sue O2, my service provider for telling me the wrong time. Well, I think that O2 have a better idea of the official time than a Cambridge pub clock! They might have a decent cask and bottled selection, but the staff were only interested in closing the bar and going home, There are three more bars in the area that are more deserving of your business. Avoid this place.

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

The Cambridge Blue’s a great pub located off Mill Road on the outskirts of Cambridge. The pub’s deceptively large, with a big beer garden behind the pub. The decor is tired, with plenty of beer and tobacco paraphernalia adorning the walls. The cask selection is strong, with something like 8 beers on cask plus more options available on gravity. The bottle list is large (150?), dominated by offerings from Belgium. At first glance the list is not all that interesting, but on closer selection it reveals some real gems. Rare beers from Hanssens, T’ij, and Struise (Pannepot Grand Reserva 09 ftw!) were all available at intriguing prices. The food is nothing special, the portions are large.

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. You’re basically guaranteed 3 new beers every day. 6 of the 12 pump clips are for hand-pull, the others show what’s on from gravicask round the back - my favourite dispense. Unfortunately, several that I’ve had there in the last few trips have been a little old. Food is excellent - I got the rarest steak I’ve 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 I’m sure the CB’s no more expensive than any other pub in town. No matter how short the trip, you must visit this pub!
Update: Note - has too many taps, you’re not guaranteed a fresh pint. At least one in four seems off, and maybe one more seems on the edge, in recent years.

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.
