Rex Rattus left this review about The Cambridge Blue

One of my fellow drinkers told me that there were fourteen real ales on in here - he's probably right but I stopped counting after I ran out of fingers and thumbs. As you enter, the bank of fridges are still there facing you containing what appeared to be an impressive array of Belgian beers.

This looks it might be a house conversion; in any case it has the same look as the terrace of house in which it sits. Inside it's essentially two rooms, with the room on the left stretching back a long way, leading to the garden at the back. It didn't have the same homely welcoming "locals" feel as the Elm Tree, but rather a functional pub where you can drink a range of well kept real ales. I can see that such a place would be some real ale enthusiasts dream pub, and it was certainly doing a good trade late Saturday afternoon even without the CAMRA pub crawl participants that admittedly swelled the numbers.

If you appreciate good real ale (and who doesn't?) then this is yet another destination pub in Cambridge.

A remarkable permanent beer and cider exhibition with a huge range of each. The large extended back room has the feel of a German beer hall, and the large outdoor area under canvas even more so. Great when quiet but can get over-busy.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Cambridge Blue

It's been a good few years since I was here last. I did notice that there had been a few changes, the most considerable was the large rear extension, plus a marquee and the banks of bottle coolers near the front entrance. One thing that hasn't changed was the good flow of customers around the place. There was a selection of eight ales on handpump on our visit. So we went for the Nene Valley Australian Pale and Pot Belly Lager Bran.
