As of June 2017, we have had to close our kitchen. This decision was not taken lightly as we have enjoyed a good reputation over the last few years. The simple fact of the matter was that we cannot staff it with our current roster. As committed as our excellent staff are, we cannot run two departments with just our bar staff. We tried, we really did, but it just led to uncertainty for our customers, and us unable to deliver the very high aims we set for our pub. So we are focusing on what we are really good at: providing the best, most diverse range of beer in Cambridge. We are happy for you to order takeaway to the pub, and would suggest Deliveroo, as well as several of our excellent local establishments on Mill Road. We’ll provide plates and cutlery as well as doing the washing up!
If you are looking to host an event or bring a large number of people in, we are happy to discuss some special arrangements, please email us directly.
A vast selection of fine beverages
Needless to say, our focus is Real Ale, however we also stock a good range of Real Cider and Perry, having won Cider/Perry Pub of the Year for Cambridge 2012 and 2016. We tend to stock 6 or 7 ever-changing ciders but always have a good balance of sweet, medium, dry and occasionally a flavoured cider.
‘Craft Beer’? Whatever your definition of it is, we have loads of it! Most people mean beer from keg taps rather than hand-pump or served by gravity (straight out of the barrel), a method of dispense normally associated with lager. Whatever your personal opinions on non-cask-conditioned beer, we aim to provide a good balance of European lagers and new beer from the UK market.
Wine drinkers are not forgotten here, our small range comes hand-picked by our managers and the lovely folks at Bacchanalia, one of Cambridge’s elite independent wine merchants.
Aperatif? Our shelves are stocked with over 70 single malt Scotch whiskies (and a few whiskeys for good measure) to dazzle you while you are standing at the bar. We have a few gins to choose from but let our sister pub The Blue Moon to act as our Gin Palace. A small selection of Rums and Bourbons add a little sweetness to our selection.
It’s fair to say that we’ll probably be able to find something you like!
Regular beers from Dark Star, Woodforde’s and Nene Valley. Rotating new beers from Three Blind Mice, Mighty Oak, and many thousands more.
A small but fine selection from our friends at Bacchanalia, encompassing French, New Zealand, Chilean and Italian varieties.
