I like the White Swan. There is a selection of real ales, live sport and plenty of space. The only problem is the bar man put the nozzle of the IPA pump into the glass, when it was set on the southern setting (as requested). The nozzle should not be placed inside of the glass, while of the southern setting.

This is a relatively basic pub among Mill Road's famous real ale houses. I popped in on a Monday night, attracted by the traditional Irish session, which seems to be a weekly event. The beer was pretty good if pricey and the free music wonderful, but a smile would have been welcome.

This pub, located on Mill Road in Cambridge is a really nice pub, It doesn't give the cosiness feel like other pubs in Cambridge can offer (see my reviews of the Free Press and Devonshire Arms) but it is a nice pub. It is also open until late on a Friday and Saturday night, certainly until 2am.

Went for a drink with friends. The staff were friendly and the beer was nice. The atmosphere is good and there is a good outside area. The White Swan is good to watch live sport at.

The food is very good. Solid pub grub. Beer ok but keep away from the Green King rubbish. Most staff are friendly but mad Fellow Irish bar tender with bipolar issues makes customers feel uncomfortable. Enjoyed sport occasions especially watching Irish rugby and most sports. Irish barman causes issues which is not conducive to a good pub atmosphere. He needs... More
