|Great boozer just down the road from a very serviceable curry house, a winning combo. Multitude of local cask ales and a couple in barrels behind the bar too. Didn't try food but it looked good. Friendly service and great place to watch Cambridge going about its business..|

We called here for a beer during a recent day trip to Cambridge after visiting the wonderful Kettles Yard and gallery which is 100 yards or so away on Castle Street.
The Pickerel seems to be a relatively unspoilt pub which is claimed by some to be the oldest pub in Cambridge. With its low, beamed ceilings and a variety of nooks and crannies, it certainly has plenty of atmosphere. Today serves an interesting selection of real ales including Theakston Old Peculiar, Woodforde's Wherry and the same brewery's Nelson's Revenge. I had a couple of excellent pints of the latter which were served by a very helpful and friendly barman. The downside was that the beer cost £3.75 a pint, but I guess that this is probably about par for the course for pubs in the tourist hot spots of the city.

|Woodforde Nelson's Revenge - very nice it was too. Good range of ale in a olde worlde pub. 10 years ago it was Wherry Best.|

|Visited today. A fine selection of ales on offer, opted for the London Fields Hackney Hopster fantastic quality. Very enthusiastic bar maid made my all to brief visit enjoyable.|

|A decent range of cask beer on pumpage still on here - actually quite a busy and seemingly thriving city centre pub. Friendly vibes seemed to pervade the atmosphere. We attended as part of an extensive pub crawl for a stag do; this was one of the latest venues visited, and so memories beyond this somewhat basic coverage are probably too hazy to provide further detailed coverage. But all-told, this pub held its own and would be recommended. |
Apparently I was here 6 years ago but I can't recall much of that either.
