Not up to the standard of the Falcon for real ales but what is? Four on tap and all very good. Very friendly place and if 12 hand pumps is not your thing the best pub in Huntingdon.

Easily the best drinking establishment in Huntingdon? Not any more - see Falcon. This pub had 4 ubiquitous ales on Doom Bar, Landlord, A N other and Tribute (none of them local) - had the Tribute - very disappointing Cornish Pale Ale and poured by inexperienced staff.

Easily the best drinking establishment in Huntingdon although that's hardly saying much since there is absolutely no competition in this dire town. Always a good selection of well kept ale. Could do with more guest ales on offer to vary the choice.

Right.

Generally, quite a nice pub serving food and with a decent selection of well-kept beers. White walls and so on inside make it feel quite light and airy.

But.

A group of us turned up, and it was all very nice until the band arrived. Had we known there was a band coming, we might not have sat next to where they'd be playing. Now, this is not a large pub - not small, but not so big that the band needed three amps and half a dozen huge speakers. When the music is so loud you can't taste the beer, something's wrong.

I'm perfectly happy to accept I'm an old git, but they were still serving food and my group - ten or so of us - couldn't hear a damned thing. The music wasn't, so far as I could see, advertised. I asked one of the bar staff to ask the band to turn it down a little, and he refused. The band were actually not bad, but even outside you had to raise your voice to make yourself heard.

Even on a Friday night, I want a pub, not a bar. Really don't know how to rate the pub. Should be probably quite high, except for the volume and the bar staff's rubbish attitude to their drinkers.

Not many pubs in East Anglia can boast a cricket mad Aussie and rugby mad South African as owners.

Good atmosphere and pulls in a different crowd according to time of day. Local polticians and us grey beards during the day and young American Service men and women during the Thursday evening Karaoke.

Good Real Ale, Clean atmosphere and lunchtime snacks. No Soccer on the screens only cricket (Ashes!) and rugby.
