Here’s the Beers not to miss! 30/4/2018

From our crafty keg range we have,

Howling Hops from Hackney,  London’s awesome take on a classic Kölsch (Beer brewed in a certain style originating in Cologne Germany) with there aptly named DAS KÖOLSCH! Providing your tastebuds with light citrus and grassy flavours and at 4.6%, its something you can enjoy more than one of!

Also coming on Keg this week something a tiny bit stronger but not too heavy, we have Cambridgeshire’s own Brewboard with their Lakota American Pale Ale at 5.1% Dry hopped with Amarillo and Citra hops, giving it the punchy citrus flavour, backed with Chinook Hops which unleash a hint of spice while the Mosaic & Equanot Hops give it a kick with a fruit and floral final hits, while the Cara Gold malt rounds it all off with a sweet toffee and caramel finish.


We’ve got quite a few brilliant ales for you to try over the coming week! But here a just a few too look out for!

From our friends at Colchester brewery we have a lovely Bronze Ale called Cenosillicaphobia! What on earth does that word mean I  hear you ask? Its something all us caskophiles suffer from! THE FEAR OF AN EMPTY BEER GLASS!! No one wants to run out of beer and this will keep you coming back for more, starting with some soft red berry fruit notes and then finishing with more of a bitter and toffee nose this one is sure to stop the Cenosillicaphobia setting in!

We will still have some of our old favourites to look out for aswell, Such as the ever popular Egyptian Cream Stout from Nene Valley Brewery, Sweet, full flavoured thick and rich, and at 4.6% no wonder it never lasts long! Also don’t miss out on Release The Chimps Everyday IPA, also by Nene Valley Brewery, this crisp punch sessionable 4.4% IPA is a great brew! Also making a return we welcome back Humpty Dumpty Brewery’s Branch Line Bitter at 3.9%, chestnut in colour, with a rich spicy fruit body, a classic among classics!

The Cambridge Blue Kitchen 

Our kitchen is open Monday-Thursday 12pm-2:30pm & 5:30pm-9pm, Friday 12pm-2:30pm & 5:30pm-9:30pm, Saturday 12-9.30 and we serve a cracking Sunday roast menu starting at 12pm serving until 8:30pm (or until we run out!) we will also serve our regular menu from 5:30pm.

It’s always best to book a table, but as always we welcome people for food during all service times without advance booking. Please call us on 01223 471680

Our menu is mainly based around the award-winning Pieminister Pie range, and our classic homemade pub meals. However our chefs do like to get a bit creative so keep your eye out for our ever changing specials that are available throughout the week.

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!

Real Ales

Regular beers from Dark Star, Woodforde’s and Nene Valley. Rotating new beers from many local breweries including Three Blind Mice & Turpins, and many many more from far and wide!


A small but fine selection from our friends at Bacchanalia, encompassing French, New Zealand, Chilean and Italian varieties.


Malt Whiskies

A wide selection including some rarer and older expressions from all over Scotland. Occasional guest appearances from Irish and if you’re really lucky, Japanese distilleries.
