I'd try this pub which I have passed many times. Quite a surprise with 14 beer taps, a smallish, but good menu. Food items are reasonably priced. Beer seemed expensive, but perhaps that's just not used to Cambridge prices.

Went on a Saturday afternoon it was extremely busy and very difficult to get seats. Good choice of beers on offer both craft and draft which you were allowed to take outside if you wished in plastic glasses. Staff were friendly and gave samples before buying a drink well worth a visit.

Stopped here for lunch on a day trip to Cambridge. We'd identified this as dog-friendly thru Tripadvisor before visiting and chose it because of reviews and location. Very busy at lunchtime, very mixed clientele, friendly service, always a good sign. The food was fairly good too.

Typed in pubs by riverside when called into Cambridge on way home from visiting family. Plucked The Mill from list. Great find, will definitely use again when most likely next trip will be to see a band. We had the Mutton Pie and the chicken rogon josh. They were both superb! Taste and presentation excellent, hot and so tasty.Ambience and... More

Stopped here for a sandwich and a pint. The choice of food was OK and there was a good range of beers. It does get busy so inside seating can be at a premium.

Very busy , cosy , friendly corner public house and the epitome of the hustle and bustle of a city hostelry. Due to its position on Mill Lane and opposite the River Cam and its mill pond the Mill Pub often ' overflows ' outside allowing usually tourists and students to enjoy the pub by 3 / 4 times the...

We was recommended this pub during one of our tours and was very happy to visit this pub on our last night. We reserved a table to be sure we could get some food and this is highly recommended as the pub can get quite packed quickly. The food was delicious and the bar service even though busy was brilliant.... More

Popped in here after visiting the nearby Fitzwilliam Museum. It's a friendly pub with an excellent selection of real ales and also keg and bottled beers. They even have small jars by the beer pumps displaying the colour of the beers so you don't have to ask the bar staff, who are very knowledgeable and pleasant anyhow. A great pub... More
