Bucking Fastard left this review about Blue Moon

A classic 60's estate pub,in a working class enclave of Cambridge which was a great surprise to find.It is the sister pub to the Cambridge Blue and looks rough from the outside with peeling paint and a large dog running around the first floor balcony.However the welcome from the barman was warm and friendly.
The front room is unused due to Covid ,it's a store room with some key kegs dotted about the excess furniture.The back bar is accessed down a grubby corridor and doesnt have any windows,so like entering a club .It was decked out in Halloween decoration,with atmospheric lighting,some high tables at the side and cheap wooden furniture elsewhere.It smelt of students,and there is a small stage at the far end of the room.A very classy soundtrack was playing,music plays a big part in the pubs existance.
The barman explained there were no handpumped ales but on each side of the two sided bar there are 10 taps,some key keg some keg.Not all 20 were operating although there is a chalk board list.After some discussion we narrowed down to 3 IPA styles from which I chose a decent Nene Valley Pulping On Your Sterio,a decent orange IPA (NBSS 3.5).
If you get fed up with all those charming street corner pubs in Cambridge,this is a bohemian alternative and I enjoyed my afternoon visit.Quirky.

The Man on the Moon is a 60s built estate pub and when i went in here it was a Tolly Cobbold tied house.
There were two rooms in this pub i went in the bar which was fairly basic the lounge looked a lot smarter and more comfortable,there were two real ales on here i had a drink of Tolly Cobbold bitter and this was a decent drink the other beer was TC Original.
