Description: We are an independent traditional English pub catering for a wide variety of people. Our reputation for Real Ale, Cider and World Beers is one of the most formidable in Cambridge. We have a vibrant atmosphere so booking at weekends is very much advisable if you want to have a full evening's food and drink. Whilst not a restaurant or chain pub we are able to accommodate most requirements in terms of managing intolerances in full compliance with allergy legislation. We welcome well-behaved children but request that they remain seated away from the bar inside or fully supervised at all times in the garden. Dogs are welcome but must be held on short leads, even in the garden. Our menu is simple (usually 3 or 4 mains with 1 or 2 starters) and popular with a very mixed clientele.

We went there for a pub meal on a Sunday in October (2013). We waited at least 50 minutes for the food, with no apology when it came. We think we saw the chef on his break in the garden, but we weren't told this when we put in our order. There was hardly any cheese on the baguette I had and the home-made coleslaw was made not with mayonnaise or salad cream but apparently with cream.

It is now a pub for drinking the huge selection of beer, not food.

The ultimate pub for beer lovers. A lot on draught and many more bottled from all around the world. Food is not their strong side. In the summer they have a nice beer garden (and a beer graveyard too!)

I have been going to the Cambridge Blue for a few years because of the good food and cosy atmosphere. I don't actually drink alcohol so can't comment but my friends think the booze is good too. I hear they have a lovely garden but I haven't used it. Probably my favourite pub in Cambridge.

Nice neighbourhood pub. Lots of room inside and out. Lots of choice and the beer was well kept. Child and familt friendly.
