Unspoilt boozer close to the hustle and bustle of Mill Road. Music-free, conversation-heavy. Dog friendly. Good local crowd; conspicuously light on student custom. A larger bar area dominates, with a snug and counter further back. The beer selection - six handpumps - is largely Anglian: Oakham (Green Devil on my visit) and Growler with a couple farther afield. A tempting looking scrumpy as well. No craft keg, but thereís enough of that elsewhere in town. A nice place indeed. Note the closure in the afternoons, including Saturdays and Sundays.

Possibly not a place for a tourist but if I were to live in Cambridge I imagine I would be here often. Reasonable selection of cask ale and some gravity tap cider too. Friendly locals. Some quiet background music would have been nice.

Located a few moments away from the Cambridge Blue, so makes for a good beginning/end of a pub-crawl. First off this place closes for lunch for a good few hours, which is unusual to say the least! Inside it has a proper local boozer feel. They have 8 hand-pulls, but unfortunately only 4 beers on when we visited. Oakham Green Devil was on, so that was the drink of choice. A solid pub with good cask beer, but nothing terribly out of the ordinary to be honest. Worth a stop on a pub crawl for sure.

Great pub. The beer selection and quality are solid. They don't play music, allowing the walls and people to create the ambiance. But the holy of holies of this bar is the rum lists. That's lists, plural. They've got a minimum of 100 different rums from around the world in a connoisseur's catalog. We now have a date for a nightcap :)

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

A spacious real ale bar with a wooden interior, just outside the city centre. Up to eight hand pulled real ales, plus a few fizzy lagers, ciders and a decent bottled Belgian selection. Good service and value. Itís worth the walk out here to visit this place and the other three top bars in the area.

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

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.
