A good backstreet local that clearly had a state-of-the-art makeover some years back which now feels like a rather dated Scandinavian café. The front bar area is not too bad but to the side and behind are heavily wooden eating areas and a kitchen servery that do not do much for me. Out the back improves, with a nice patio garden and a separate garden room, also set out for dining. A fair selection of beers though, at time of visit being Oakham Citra and Inferno, Tring Moongazing, Truman Swift, and Greene King London Glory plus a couple of ciders.

This part of Cambridge has some fine pubs, this being one of them, just along from the Blue, effectively three connected areas, split level and with the bar central. The decor is light and has an airy feel, much appreciated on a stifling hot day, two banks of four on, Oakham Citra, Tring Drop Bar, Wolf Brewery Sly Wolf, Colchester Brewery Jack Spitty, GK IPA ,Mad Squirrel Hopfest ,a few others including a cider, Cromwells something or other, bit befuddled by the time I reached this one. There is a garden to the rear and a wood slatted wall has old metal ads. There is an open to view food servery. A London tube style map lists Cambridge pubs. Music came from a retro Bakelite radio, food from an open to view kitchen. The rear room has a TV monitor listing the beers on. One wall has a wallpaper designed as cabinet drawers. You could do worse than nip in here, a decent pub.

I first went to this pub a number of years ago when it was definately a 'Town meets Gown' place. It has since been totally refurbished and serves excellent food and good quality Greene King ales.
