Opposite Magdalene College this pub is clearly old with an old world feel to it. A touch cramped inside there is an outdoor area to the rear, however itís wonderfully atmospheric inside with a single bar that is split into two serving areas due to a pillar wall half way along it. Thereís a number of real ales available with several rotating.

A low-ceilinged boozer on the way to the Castle Inn as you head from the centre of town outwards. They have a modest range of cask ales, nothing too exciting but probably a tick or two for most folks. Prices are fair. A few TVs showing sports. Nice staff, average prices. Decent vibes here, feels somewhat cosy; lots of wood. Perhaps worth a stop if youíre passing by.

Old school pub near Magadalene. Now a Taylor Walker pub, but still maintains nice old wooden decoration, friendly service and mid-sized but well chosen selection of ales. Can be rammed full of students.
