Only 2 Oakham badged beers available which were no more than OK. Another unrecognised beer was undrinkable and should not have been served. It had been busy in Cambridge on a Sunday afternoon but no excuse for selling bad beer

Not many ales on yesterday, suppose that is to be expected in the Xmas/New Year gap. What was on was good. Just outside the main tourist area so not as crowded as some of the other city centre pubs.

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.
