Having lived in Cambridge all my life, but only been here once before. I can honestly say this is the best pub grub you will get in Cambridge. I had the nicest crab linguine ever. Also my partner had a really tender rump steak, perfectly cooked with REAL potato chunky chips. Oh and cheesy garlic bread is pure heaven. Staff,... More

Four of us visited the pub for lunch whilst visiting Cambridge. A nice pub with friendly staff and a good selection of food, beers and other drinks. There is an outside eating area and the food was tasty and the drinks were of good quality, The prices were very reasonable and overall the pub is good value for money.

This pub is at the better end of pub food. Excellent service and an extensive menu. Very popular so think about booking especially at busy times as it is not such a big pub.

I've been going to the Kingston Arms, once a month for lunch, for the past 10 years and the standard of the beer, food and service is always of a high quality and I have never been disappointed. It is always possible to find a table during the week but that may be difficult in the evening and weekends. There... More

Another busy place near Mill Road, popular with students. Excellent and ever changing range of beers, CAMRA discounts can be obtained. Food is pretty decent too, although there aren't many tables so it can be difficult to eat, particularly at peak times. Good sized garden for the summer nights, well worth a visit if you like your beer...

Went here with my wife whilst in Cambridge. Pub a little out of Cambridge centre (10 minute walk) but well worth a visit. Good selection of real ales and we both had a burger and chips which was very tasty and reasonably priced. Wales v England game was on but with no sound which was fine. I am a member... More

High quality real ale pub, with real cider too (plus small selection of four kegs). Good balance of different beers types - though slightly more 'traditional' in its options than the Cambridge Blue close by. Didn't eat, so can't comment on the food.

This is a nice local pub with a traditional environment, good food, fair prices, and very good food portions. There's a good selection of ales, very helpful and kind staff (highlight of the evening!), and good quality people hanging around at the pub. I really enjoyed our visit as it was such a friendly, calm, and cozy environment. I didn't... More

Wonderful proper pub I cannot fault the place at all. Ales are amazing JHB, wherry, Tim Taylor's are always on plus another 5 constant changing hand pulls. I never eat here but the food always looks good too.
