“Good value food in a classic pub”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

I use this pub regularly with family (well behaved children welcome here), and always enjoy the home made pub grub and Adnams beers. The burgers are good, but there's always healthy options.

The pub is just outside the centre but a pleasant 5 minute walk down to the riverside. It gets a good mix of customers, students, tourists and locals like us. Food is cheap for Cambridge, beer expensive, but the imported German beers are worth the extra.

“Just a really nice pub”
Reviewed 15 June 2013

The Castle Inn is simply one of the best pubs in Cambridge and does some excellent pub food and excellent value for money. A good range of beers as well along with friendly and attentive staff.

“Lunch”
Reviewed 6 April 2013 via mobile

Great food, great beer and good atmosphere. A truly fantastic lunch venue, a little out of the way for dinner and not really aimed at that market. But if you're near quayside at lunchtime well worth the hike up one of cambridge's only hills for lunch. One of the only pubs to serve Adnams bitters on tap too makes this a must for most.

“Great Pub, Great Beer”
Reviewed 11 March 2013

Fantastic pub serving great beer. Lots of room here for big groups and always room for two somewhere. Upstairs has more seating. The food menu is so typically pub grub, so nothing surprising, although it is good. Known for it's beer primarily, and there is usually a rather good selection on offer. It is kept well, and probably the best ale house in the area. Highly recommend.
