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 which includes wines from Italy, Chile, New Zealand and the US, 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.
