What can I say, its a large W/spoons.

Good range of beers , and the staff pass the time of day (4pm)
with the customers.

However at peak times it would be manic.

Good for a few pints late afternoon.

Massive 'spoons. However they normally have a good range of ales available, and the staff seem to know what they are doing as well. Always worth a visit if in Cambridge.

A good example of the better type of spoons: airy, period features, good food and friendly staff. Not too many losers. Definitely worth a lunch stop on a day out or a few early evening drinking before heading somewhere more upmarket/lively.

Someone said it's the biggest pub in the UK. I wouldn't argue. Despite that it felt homely; well as homely as a JDW can be.We managed to bag some good seats to watch the rugby on Saturday. Beer was spot on. Decided to have some eats which were very good.

I do think JDW has come on in leaps and bounds over the last 10 years.

i really can't fault this place.

the food is consistently good and better than just about everything else in cambridge ... which admittedly is not saying much.

but it is cheap, hearty stuff that does the trick for a fiver.

the staff are always welcoming. i've never noticed a problem with the clientele and the fact that it attracts such a diverse mix of people is one of its good points.

i have always enjoyed the range of beers on offer and the prices are modest.

whoever is managing just about gets it all right in running a huge city centre pub designed to cater to all tastes.

i like esoteric and weird a lot of the time, but when we just want a cheap beer in reasonable surrounds and a bite to eat on a busy saturday, the regal wins hands down.
