This was the third of the Mill Road vicinity pubs that we visited this time whilst in the city. I’ve been here before but not as frequently as its two near neighbours the Cambridge Blue and the KIngston Arms. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in here, the beer was in excellent order and the barman very helpful and friendly. It was fair buzzing with chatter and was nice to see a little back street pub doing so well. An excellent Belgian beer selection offered those seeking something different from the 8 or so cask ales on handpump something to go at. This has now risen ahead of the Kingston for me and pushes the Cambridge Blue hard for the best pub in this city.

Possibly Cambridge’s 2nd best real ale pub, having a more interesting selection than the Kingston Arms. Very friendly staff (in particular ’Haggis’), and knowledgeable too. Pete’s good at pulling in some interesting foreign beers too. Food has always been tasty, and frequently includes specials. Rather limited in space, alas. Doesn’t cater for smokers, not having a terrace, but I couldn’t give a flying wotsit about that. Gents loos are the only thing making this not a 5 ambiance - they’re dire. (And still dire 2 years later - please Pete - fix up the loos!)

Fairly average back street bar, not a very exciting selection by local standards.

Live and Let Live is a great little pub located close to the Cambridge Blue off Mill Road. The ambiance is lovely - the bar’s small and wooden, the decor tired. Despite that, the atmosphere is relaxed and jovial (sleeping dogs under tables, locals having plenty of banter etc). When I visited there were 6 beers on cask, including 3 options from Oakham. The beers were well kept, the prices good. Overall, while the beer selection is inferior to the Cambridge Blue, the great atmosphere of this pub makes up for it. I highly recommend a visit.

One of the cornerstones of the Cambridge sanity belt and unique in branching out into an impressive range of Belgian craft ales to compliment the UK real ones. The pub that is nearest to the station on the way back. Round the corner from Bacchanalia. A good place to mumble but still feel normal.

Lovely pub with a talkative landlord, who atleast this day just would let you order until 1430 when they are supposed to close for a while. Great selection of cask ales and all serviced in very good condition.

An intimate backstreet local, keeping a well-kept and well-chosen range of real ales on handpump. Attracts a mixed clientele, but mainly keen ale enthusiasts. Fairly efficient service at the bar and a food menu, offered most sessions, that caaters for the many, not the few. A proper pub, homely furnishing and lighting afford warm atmosphere. Conversation rules the roost here, too. Well worth a visit, and inclusion on any Cambridge crawl. I visited on Saturday 15th August and enjoyed the one pint I had there immensely.

Another great backstreet pub, close to the Kingston Arms and Cambridge Blue, and surpassing them both in my opinion. Slightly dark and seedy - I guess I fitted in straight away! A good and varied range of cask ales, good service, and excellent reading material dotted around the place - my kind of pub.

A nice wooden pub with good real ales. My choice was Nethergate Umbel Ale 3,8% (30.6.2010).
