5 stars purely for the fact that it's pretty much the only place that still serves after 1am. The atmospheres great, they have a jukebox and a dartboard, neither of which you find in many pubs. The ale tastes like pish, but if you're out at 1am looking for somewhere to continue drinking, the quality of the beer isn't too... More

The only reason to visit the White Swan is that it is open. The beer quality is average but could be a lot better. Live sport is shown

The White Swan is much bigger than it seems from outside. The pub has a good selection of beers and something that always attracts us on a night out is the jukebox. These days it is hard to find one in a modern pub. Primarily the pub is a sports venue, showing regular Premier League and rugby matches. A good... More

I popped in for a bite to eat with my family and ordered the super sandwich, My God it must of been a foot tall, made with four doorstep slices of bread and filled with various types of meat and cheese. I did not know whether to eat it or climb over it. The other food was basic pub grub,... More

The only pub that opens until late. The beer is ok, but the quality should be improved. Staff don't appear to use the IPA pump correctly. Placing the end into the bottom of the glass should only be done when using the north setting.

If they just looked after their beer a bit better, it could be such a good pub. The atmosphere is fine, the staff is friendly enough. But the ale . . .

Visit cambridge regularly and have drank here a few times - probably my least favourite on Mill Road - its only saving grace is that it opens late and when needs must! Staff can be snappy and the crowd can be a mixed bag - sometimes with a rougher element.

Good for a few beers and the football. The burgers are good too and staff friendly... Smoking area outside and decent music

Great pub to watch sport. One of the few sports bars in Cambridge with a great atmosphere for six nations games. Staff are very friendly and always throw us some free snacks during big matches. Food is ok though there are better pubs to eat nearby.
