Old Rating: Tiny little place, just at the end of the pub crawl known as the kingsí street run. Milton beers always a plus. Good selection of other quality beers too. Can get claustrophobic when busy, but quite like someoneís lounge when itís quiet. Staff were traditionally great, as befitting a cosy pub.
Rerate: Yikes, this has gone downhill. Bar rearranged, possibly for space reasons, but it looks less cosy. Staff seemed uninterested in beers, beers were uninteresting to my tongue - all getting a bit tired - even if two new brewery ticks. Milton was missing, I commented on that, barman just said "meh". Iíll give it another chance, but itís lost much of its former draw.

Update August 2015: This pub now seems to concentrate on Calvors and Saffron. They had recently run out of Brooklynís Summer Ale, shame I missed it but itís interesting seeing this place start to serve more craft. ------
An institution in Cambridge at the end of King Street, the St Radegund feels steeped in the soul of the university. 6 real ales on (out of about 10 taps) with Saffron and Milton given centre stage. More Saffron bottles in the fridge. A bit musty and old-fashioned, and the tables are a bit sticky, but worth a look in if you are in the area.

Friendly boozer, suitably filled with locals on a Friday early evening spilling out onto the sidewalk, where you can stand and drink. Only drawback was the sweaty locker room smell on the inside in summer, but there were still lots of ppl. The Milton beers were in good form and nice to drink. Well worth a stop when in the area.

Visited on the 19/1-2013.
Small cosy pub, with very friendly staff. Nice deco and lots of pictures on the walls. Beers in good condition, seems very much as a pub for the locals.

One of my favourite pubs during my day out in Cambridge. Itís a small place, but on a chilly Saturday afternoon in February, with some Six Nations rugby on the TV, a small crowd and good-drinkiní ales on tap, it was just about the perfect pub. Very low-key vibe, good range of beers - not just low ABV goldens and bitters. Good value, friendly bartender. Has a very ílocalí feel to it. I would happily pass a few hours in here with a book.

A nice, small place to have some good real ales. Milton beers often available (2010,2011).

Visited here Sunday 15th April 2012 with Loz and this was the first time that weíd been here for about 5+ years. I have to say this really wasnít as good as I recalled, the pub smelt and not pleasantly at that with a mixture of sweat, mustiness and old cheese. I asked for a half and got a pint and I have to say I didnít find it particularly welcoming. However to be fair the beer that I had namely Brentwood Boston Brown whilst not my cup of tea was in very good nick and clearly well kept, Loz had Nethergate Barfly again well kept but just not that interesting, we were gagging for something hoppy but found nothing today, maybe I should have had one of the Milton beers? Both left here feeling a bit disappointed, this pub clearly has great history and who knows on another day I might have flet very different but sadly today it did nothing for us at all.

Nice and cosy place with a good selection of cask beer and also some ciders. Quite quick service. A bit hot inside as it was quite crowded.

Visited on 29 July 2010. A small, quirky place which, unlike most of the decent boozers in Cambridge is quite close to the city centre. Used to be part of the famous King Street Run - a pub crawl of 8 pubs on the same street. Well, I suppose it still is but only 3 or 4 of the pubs are still open (one of which is crap) so its not much of a crawl these days. Expect half a dozen varying cask beers including a couple from Milton. Extra Selection point for the two Milton beers made exclusively for the pub (not rebadges) - Habit and Sackcloth - although they are not permanently available. However, neither was on when I visited this time, so Iíve deducted it again. One drawback is that the place didnít open until 5pm on weekdays but there has been a recent change of ownership and allegedly it is now open all day. Unfortunately, on this visit (after 5pm) I forgot to check that out. The change of ownership means it wonít be in next years Good Beer Guide. No food. I like this place.
