Another of those decent back street locals that Cambridge does so well. Has two separate rooms with the one bar. They had five ales on - the Exeter Avocet went down well.

It appears that new entries aren't accepted on here anymore - which is a pity with the constant changes of closures and new establishments. As they can't be added I though I'd comment on three that are in the vicinity of the geldart but aren't listed

CALVERLEY BREWERY TAP- Hooper Street. Basic small room in brewery with a couple of benches with a few more benches and outbuilding. Tried the porter and the pale both quite palatable. They have a food truck parked in the street outside. Only one single toilet so expect to queue for it.

STATION TAVERN - ground floor of new building outside station. A Youngs/Wells corporate house - bland in all respects.

THE OLD TICKET OFFICE - Part of the original station building with five ales on offer. Forgot the one I had but it was a decent pint. In another town this would probably make the GBG but there are too many other good pubs in this town. Worth a swift pint before catching your train though (and preferable to the bland Youngs pub opposite)

this is one of those very few pubs that feel good on entering and just gets better.We felt so at home here that simple things like trains etc.were completley forgotten. As the previous poster points out seven real ales and most were interesting. The plan now is to go again.

The GBG didn't do this service! Was expecting Deuchers, Youngs and St Austell, wasn't expecting 4 other beers from more unusually breweries! Predominantly light and hoppy beers (as with everywhere else now it seems) but there was a Toffee Porter.
Quirky pub that's done out well, had a traditional jazz feel to it (music and decor) which isn't normally my thing but worked really well. An excellent pub for a couple to sit and relax but also well worth a visit for a group of ale enthusiasts.

This is in an oasis of pubs all close together and all with something to recommend them. Backstreet local not too far from city centre. 8 pumps all on on a Tuesday evening. Dancing duck dark drake, Orkney old macgregor, rooster blind jack, Oakham Citra, castle rock harvest pale, Youngs Special, which I avoid on principle now, Tribute and Deuchers IPA.

Corner pub in an area of terraced housing. This seems like a community local. It hosts many events. A book club was about to start during my visit. There is a main bar and another couple of nicely decorated rooms, with an outdoor area at the rear. Food is rather strange, with delicacies such as kangaroo. They have a reasonable selection of ales too. Although there was nothing too unusual - Jennings Sneck Lifter, Flack Manor Hedge Hop, Mordue Northumbrian Blonde, Oakham Citra, Black Sheep Best Bitter, Youngs Special, St Austell Tribute & Caledonian Deuchars IPA. Good pub that's worthy of a visit.
