ORIGINAL REVIEW September 2012.
Sadly not open on a Thursday lunchtime despite being listed as such in the 2013 GBG.The exterior was looking a little tatty but peering in through the window revealed a good line up of real ales and a functional interior.

UPDATE
I really wanted to check this pub out and arrived at the 5.30pm opening times to find out that only takeaways were being offered from a table blocking the side entrance.It was a wet Wednesday ,so I was thwarted again, this time by Covid.

An absolutely first-class pub, the best I’ve found in Cambridge to date. Well described by others, below, this is a venue in its own right, though it doesn’t open in the afternoon so be aware. Ales on were Green Devil and Citra from Oakham, Elgood’s Cambridge Bitter, Yeovil Night Train and Nethergate Umbel. The other handpumps were dispensing cider and perry from Simon’s Cider. There was an advert for a rum festival, which sadly wasn’t on during my limited visit to Cambridge, plus several adverts for other pubs’ forthcoming beer festivals. Definitely worth a visit and an essential crawl pub.

A wonderful and atmospheric street corner local with lots of ins, outs and corners. It has a proper bare wooden floor and is decorated with various bric-a-brac, but is generally free from distractions. A very good range of excellent beers, and a specialism in rum. Definitely one for the serious drinker.
