A very dark/dim interior on my winter evening visit. Various posters and bric-à-brac adorn everywhere. 6 real ales. A short walk from the train station.

I turned up here just after 14:00 on a Thursday afternoon to find it quiet. As mentioned below it's a fairly small wooden floored place with bric-a-brac everywhere. It is a bit on the scruffy side but that doesn't bother me at all. Live music is advertised. It looks to me like it's aimed at students rather than old wrecks.
The bar has six hand pumps with an extra one devoted to cider. On my visit one was unused and the five beers were Adnam's Lighthouse, Moonshine Hog Hopper & Cambridge Pale Ale, Crouch Vale Brewers Gold and Dark Star Hophead. I went for the Hog Hopper (£3.60) which was excellent and so good I managed to fit in another before getting the train back to London.
I thought this place was OK for an afternoon visit but I'm not sure I would take to it of an evening.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Flying Pig

A choice of six ales on our visit, so went for the Crouch Vale Brewers Gold, which was in a very poor condition. The majority of drinkers were opting for the ales on keg on our visit, now I know why. The interior was also set up like a bistro with lots of small tables, candles everywhere and subdued red lamps, too poncy for me. The 1970's funk music playing was excellent, I have to say. The young manager and his girlfriend, were unfriendly and uppity.
