First off like many other people I’m not a beer drinker but my friends are and so I join them here, usually under silent duress! A non beer drinker can get a limited number of other drinks . I do however feel that this place would not win any cleanliness awards. The tables always look dirty and it’s nothing short of chaotic behind the bar. The outside seating isn’t great and neither is it comfy but if you love beer I doubt that would bother you.

Dropped by this indy ale house for a bit of a slurp and nibble at lunchtime. Warm and welcoming, a great selection of hand pulls, cider and crafty bottles. Bagged one of their cheese slates. Mainly Lancs fromage- all lovely. Genial atmosphere with a few friendly locals. Deserves to be busier. Check it out.

Nice and cosy. A good selection of ales. Friendly staff. Dog friendly. Games consoles and a jukebox! Sounds great doesn’t it!

I only have one small complaint. The music is so quiet near the back - we popped a few songs on the jukebox and barely heard them. We asked for it to be turned up but made no difference.
It appeared to be louder near the door as we were leaving.

Stumbled on this by accident, tucked away in an arcade.
Table service due to the situation.
Some nice ales on and a great red wine.
There were a few others sitting outside in the corridor next to an antique shop and a few locals pulling up chairs too. Everyone was chatting and a great little atmosphere.
Would definitely go back.

Nice to see that you’re open again.
I had a pint of draught stout here yesterday and it was delicious proper beer.
A favourite spot in the historic Cambridge walks with a friendly atmosphere.
Great selection of beers.

Quality beer and excellent scotch eggs.
If you like seriously good beer, this is the place for you. Fine selection of real ale including excellent double hopped IPA (Commonwealth brewary, Virginia Beach, syndicate IPA).
In life, and with beer, you get what you pay for. It's not the cheapest, but one of the best.
Cannot recommend this place enough.

This place is that bad that after my first pint I decided to stop for four more so I could hate the place for longer, I'll being going back again in the near future so I cannot like again. ;-)

What a cracking little bar, friendly staff, friendly customers and enough choice in beers to ensure that you cannot possibly get bored with the same drink no matter how long you stay to not like it for even longer.

Very quirky and characterful place. Hidden gem in the arcades. Copious amounts of choice on the crafty shelves! Excellent draft selection, which changes daily or as demand leads! No lifers on tap, so a new experience each time you come in, for the discerning beer drinker it's like christmas morning on each visit... Some lovely quality wines and fizz. They do coffee too judging by the complicated looking machine - not tried that yet....but it is a beer shop when all said and done! That leaves food and staff. Pretzels are huge. Snacks plentiful. And staff and proprietor, friendly, knowledgeable, relaxed and very welcoming! Well worth a visit or three....!

We visited one night after a concert. The place itself is a beer & cider drinkers paradise:) everything and more that has been dreamed of is served. The walls are lined with bottles all served by s friendly bar man who is more than happy to offer small samples. The ambiance is pretty good too. Nice place to drink yourself round the world x
