85-87 Gwydir Street, Petersfield, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, CB1 2LG
One of Cambridge’s enduring institutions; generations of happy customers.

Our goal is to balance good home-cooked dishes with the classics to be found in the traditional pub.

If you would like to book for a large group (anything over 12), please email the pub, or to speak to someone, call us on 01223 471680.

You’ll find burgers, pies and more to be enjoyed if you fancy something simple and hearty. We have a small selection (ever-changing) of dishes created by our chefs to keep them entertained and out of trouble, and have suggested a drink pairing to go with it. These are not always specific since our choice of beers changes so frequently, if in doubt, ASK!

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.
