This is apparently the smallest bar in Cambridge. 6 pumps for cask, one of which was off at the time of my visit. On offer were Jay IPA by Magpie, London Pride, Saffron Porter by Saffron, Trawlerboys Best Bitter, and Zeppelin by Billericay.

Lovely old fashioned feeling pub and not busy at the time I was in. All cask ales £2 a pint or £1 for a half during the month of May. Absolute bargain and much better beer and pricing than the Greene King place down the road. I had the Jay IPA which was very nice, and was tempted to stay for another, this time the Saffron Porter. This unfortunately was slightly less impressive, just got some of the flavours coming through but a slight hint of that off vinegar taste too which makes me think it was probably on the turn. I managed to drink it though and for £1 was certainly not going to grumble.

Definitely worth a visit.

When I last came to Cambridge I missed out on this pub as it doesn't open on weekday afternoons. It really is extremely small and quite basic, there are bare wooden floors and all sorts of bric-a-brac.
Surprisingly for a pub where there isn't room to swing a cat there was what looked like an operational dart board.
On the bar there were eight hand pumps, surely too many for a place this size. One was unused then there was London Pride, Spitfire, Saffron Dawn Til' Dusk & Silent Night, a White Park beer and Milton Medusa & Minerva. I went for the Silent Night which was in very good nick. I rather liked this pub, it's a basic drinking den, the sort of place that is becoming more and more difficult to find nowadays.

A small pub sporting five handpumps – three from Milton, Leeds Monsoon and London Pride. None of the ales we tried were particularly inspiring and the interior felt a bit unkempt and scruffy. I wasn’t as taken with it as others seem to be and would give it a miss next time based on this showing.

Tarred floors, Hessian curtains. Very old fashioned. I beleive still has a Vera Lynn appreciation society. Well worth a visit.

Only one other customer on Sat afternoon so no queuing system to negotiate. Small single roomed pub playing background jazz. The infamous Terry was not in situ but the barman and the other punter were happy to chat about the pub's name & social angles - they have rowing & cricket teams and run an annual drinking (or drunken?)race. Apparently Jesus college was founded on the site of the 12c nunnery of St Mary & St Radegund. On handpump Thwaites, Pride, Milton Nero & Milton Sackcloth. Wall of shame is for those who fail to finish their drink - they are invited to sign a chitty stating "Terry's beer was too strong for me".

This pub is small and therefore easily busy hence the sensible "service area" and queue system at the bar which allows seating at bar stools at the other end. Dark inside, no gimmicks like gaming machines, a quiet background jazz music.

Fullers beers, a bit bland for a London based drinker but had also a guest from the local Milton brewery, I forget which one but a straw coloured enjoyable ale around 4.5%.

The barman was friendly and informative, helping us with our maps and route and suggesting some alternative options. The "Hall of Shame" seems to be for those who cannot handle their ale, looks like there have been plenty.

I enjoyed it here, a traditional and characterful gem.
