I did some research and found that this was the spot for good beer in Cambridge. That is correct. The food was also very good - high end bar food for sure. Can't wait to return.

I hung out there for several hours with friends on a Saturday night. Over the course of 4 hours we collectively spent 200 dollars. The things this place does well: Service: Our waitress was AWESOME. Every time she noticed we were running low on beer, she came over with recommendations of what to get next (because of course we aren't... More

They got some wonderful beer selection - definitely try their Belgian beers. I only wish they had better fries.

What an amazing place with amazing staff (not to mention amazing beer). I reached out to several breweries to hold my boyfriend's surprise 30th birthday party and Nick from Lord Hobo replied right away. He was extremely accomidating and even met with me in-person to look at the space and designate tables to hold and food to provide as appetizers.... More

Nick the Manager was outstanding. He couldn't do Enough to make us welcome and comfortable. The beer/wine and food was outstanding. Wait staff was on their game. Always available and prompt.

Great pub which we were told about as we approached almost looked closed but opening door led to world of great beers (no big manufactured names) and food here was really good. Service was excellent and recall the music was good too.

Great pub, off the beaten track but well worth grabbing a beer here after a pizza at Emma's along the road - some cracking brews inclusing a DIPA to die for if you're a hardcore hophead. Grab a beer flight and sample away! Dark and cosy as a proper pub should be. Nicely branded glasses. Recommended.

It was very busy when we arrived but service was fast. Great selection of beers. I had the duck which was incredible, my husband had the chilli, which was served in an interesting way - I won't spoil the surprise!

This place pretty dark, interior is dark red and black, but its nice and the atmosphere is great. I ordered a flight with four different Lord Hobo-beers, all four were really good. The favorite though was Boom Sauce, amazing IPA. If you like good beer, this place is not going to disappoint you.
