This is the pub tourists should visit if they are looking for pubs of the past, mainly a drinking crowd. But a nice looking menu on offer, everyone is very friendly, always on my list to go if in Cambridge.

Called in here last week when staying nearby. Really enjoyed my pint and the cosy atmosphere. A good place to drop into.

Loved the Champion of the Thames - traditional pub/ ale house - loads of character and full of an eclectic mix of chatty locals - we had a great night and will definitely be back.

The roaring fire and the warm welcome make this a pub well worth visiting. It's a tiny place with a big heart - go there when you're in Cambridge.

OK so yes it's a pub so you would expect it to only serve alcohol but it doesn't even do coffee. They don't serve food but have an agreement with the cafe down the road that you can bring your sandwiches in. It reminded me...More
