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.

Aqualung . left this review about St Radegund

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.
