Live and Let Live is a great little pub located close to the Cambridge Blue off Mill Road. The ambiance is lovely - the barís 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.

Nice place to go to when visiting Cambridge. Great atmosphere, seems to be the favourite of the locals. Good selection, including quite many Belgian beers (much to the enjoyment of the friend I was visiting) and some nice cask ales.

Best pub in Cambridge 5 ever changing guest ales, including 1 thatíll be 3.5-4%, a dark one (could be anything from a 3.3% mild to a 9% stout). Thereís usually an offering from Oakham. Tring Jack O Legs and Nethergateís Umble are the house regulars. Landlord is fastidious about line cleaning Thereís a guest draught Belgian, currently Kwak, and Leffe. 40+ Belgian bottles gets it a mention in the Good Beer Guide to Belguim Real cider from Casselís, and Westonís under gas. 50+ rums, except when thereís a rum festival on when that goes up to 70+. 10+ bourbons. No fruit machine, music or tv.

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.

One of Cambridgeís gems. Always a good selection of ales, decent food and the possibility of a nice chat with the locals.

This was the third of the Mill Road vicinity pubs that we visited this time whilst in the city. Iíve 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.

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.

I liked the backstreet ambiance and scruffy interior. Only five cask ales on, which was disappointing. Food was only just above basic: burger and chips, pork pie, ploughmanís. Copy of The Times to read. Toilets were clean.

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.
