Absolute madness, in a good way. Shelves on the ceiling, broom handles for balusters. Plastic cups, Graffitied walls Widest selection of juke box tunes in the world. Punk rock defined. The place you're most likely to see the band "For The Hornets" drinking Highly recommend.

We’ve been here a couple of time’s now. Feels like a throwback to the 70’s, but good range of beers. Football was our main reason for visiting, a great place to just sit and kick back with a pint, watch the footy, play a game...More

This is an old school pub with no frills or pretence, the old posters are great to look at and it reminds me of what pubs used to be like.

Charges £1.00 for all card transactions. Rude staff and unfriendly. Plenty of better places to go in Cambridge.

Always visit when we are in Cambridge, it's quirky with a metal/rock vibe. Love that it currently has Trooper on tap!

This has turned into a dive. It has a shabby mix of tacky furniture and a strange clientele. We were here because it was the only pub open late at night but stayed for only 1 drink.

Lively pub with plenty to do whilst supping - pool table, pinball (#1 son didn't even wait for his drink before jumping on), video games, sporty TVs (boxing tonight) and an assortment of customers worth people watching to say the least. Service was quick and...More
