First of 2 GBG pubs to check out in Saffron Walden.

This was perfectly functional - four real ales on - I can remember seeing Woodforde Wherry but went for a Theakstons XB.

I see my previous review (six years ago) is out of date, I concur with quercus's review. Now the Lizzie and White Horse and now the Cross Keys and the Sun Inn have closed, Friday night clientel has a rather negative vibe. I still go in various days of the week and various times, with various people (dates, business meetings, socials or quiet retreats). At peak times, it gets crowded, noisy and sometimes rowdy. There is no escape in the garden (read yard) because you will die of smoke inhalation. At other times, it is friendly and quiet and as another reviewer mentioned, a good place for a roast or a place to read a paper. The beer is good with a changeable selection of guest beers and the other drinking options are well chosen, food is still good too, even after their chef left. Jeff and Cindy are still friendly but some of their staff can scare you off, especially at those peak times, they can be positively cold!

Great beer and a wonderful pub when it is quieter but it can become completely solid during busy periods.

Very relaxed pub with grown-up feel, certainly on a Sunday afternoon. Nice place to read the Sunday papers laid out. Adnams (only) 3.10 a pint which is a good 25p below Cambridge prices, but it was only average to good.
