Warm friendly pub with good beer and a great atmosphere

We visited this on a day trip before heading to a restaurant around the corner. We were gasping for a beer having spent the whole walk from the other side of town wondering if we were just looking in the wrong places for pubs. We eventually found the Flying Pig through trip advisor search. We... read more

I visited with friends and was very impressed. There was a wide selection of real ales on offer and they were very nice. I loved the decor inside and look forward to returning soon.

The Flying Pig is one of my favourite pubs. Rather than being a "standard" chain pub, the Flying Pig stands alone as an old-style brick house just outside the centre of Cambridge (about 7 minute walk from the train station). The pub sells a variety of ales which are regularly rotated, and a decent number of lesser known (but excellent)... More

The Flying Pig is a great pub that is very handy for Cambridge Rail Station (and is also local to me). The staff are friendly and the beer is top class! I recommend trying one if the guest ales

I didn't eat here I just drank. Plenty of customers for mid-week, so it was not an empty barn. I thought the atmosphere and all was good. The music playing was brilliant (nice to have a pub with some chilled blues rock going on rather than some radio 1 teen bopping nonsense or football). They sell some decent ales and... More

The bar staff were very rude and unwelcoming. Their response to me trying to just charge my phone from a socket in the wall was over the top and blown out of proportion, despite me buying a drink in there. I was there on my own and needed charge in order to get into the place I was staying, little... More

We visited the Flying Pig several times during our stay in Cambridge over the August Bank Holiday. We were staying at the Travelodge nearby so it was on our way into town and on our way home. It is a good traditional "boozer" with no frills but that's what we like. There was a good selection of beers which were... More

Nice little pub, but nowhere to sit, eventually 2 seats become available as we were ready to get them some students came round other side and nicked them from under our noses!
