Large modern pub, good use of an old tram depot, but atmosphere seems rather clinical and forced. 6 taps serving ales, Everards/Brunswick and a couple of guests, plus a reasonable selection of bottles. Service was ok. The inside of the place lacks the character considering the buildings history.
A nice modern place with friendly service in what was presumably once a tram depot. There are brick floors and a wrought iron canopy outside, perhaps sheltering a former platform. The beer selection was rather limited, with just two Everards beers, a couple of guests from White Horse and York breweries and a house beer called Tram Light.

I can certainly echo the previous thoughts of my fellow raters in that the Tram Depot is not on the A-list of Cambridge pubs. Having said this, they carry decent real ales - Everards regular and seasonals as well as guests - plus a few reasonable if not unusual keg and bottle choices. A viable alternative to many of the identikit GK pubs in the city.
Visited in July 2011. An Everards pub with up to fourguests including, quite often a Brunswick beer or two. Interesting building with a comfortable enough feel, but a rather anodyne internal fitout. Not a beer destination as such. May be worth a look if you are passing. And, as it’s pretty much on the route from the Mill Road cluster to Cambridge city centre, that’s fairly likely. Also worthwhile if you are looking for Everards or Brunswick beer/s as they are not otherwise commonly seen in Cambridge. Food is of the burger & pizza variety but I’ve never eaten here.
Visited on my super crawl around Cambridge in early 2013. Big place with a modern feel. Nothing exceptional on tap - maybe a tick or two but nothing beyond that. Average prices. Nice staff. Definitely not a must-visit location in Cambridge.
A quite cozy place, with lovely squeeky stairs upstairs (to the toilet). Nothing that exciting on cask, seems to carry Everards in 2-3 of the casks then about 2 casks with guest beers. All I had were served in good condition though.
Modern "staged" tram depot, often loud music and a bit hectic feeling. But conveniently close to the Grafton shopping centre, so not too bad for a pint during major shopping. Food ok, but no more.

2017 update: They’ve upped their game a bit, it’s not unpleasant at all, and the beer selection seems to have perked up a bit. Clearly 2010 was a low point, and this place is at least adequate as a venue now.
2010 review: (2:6:4:_:_:9=42) You’ll not get anything exciting here, but it’s a handy south-central location if you’re aiming for the cinema. You;ll always find 2 Everards, and maybe 2 or 3 other breweries, but often larger ones, so no tick-fest here.
A modern conversion completely lacking in atmosphere - a range of Everards beers and a couple of guests - an OK place to stop between the Cambridge Blue and Elm Tree, but not worth seeking out otherwise.
