user reviews of the Grapes, Cambridge

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Just over 3 years on and this time I managed to get a drink in the Grapes, my penultimate stop in Cambridgeshire. This is a Greene King pub. Greene King IPA & Abbot are dispensed. The guest beer was Belhaven Grand Slam. The Six Nations must be getting closer. A game of pool was in action again and the pub was just about as busy as my last visit when we were denied service. Nothing really to write home about. But at least I can know award a more accurate score. I moved on from here to Calverley's Brewery Tap. Whilst not listed on here, it was my favourite venue of the day.

As we were struggling to find any open pubs in Cambridge, we headed towards the outskirts where presumably even without the students and tourists, there would be enough locals to warrant pubs being open. We thought our luck was in here, with the signs up outside, the lights on inside and about a dozen customers when we walked in. Sadly the barman didn't seem to like the look of us and stated they were closed. Strange that when most of the customers had full or almost full pints and a game of pool was in full progress. Whilst I haven't reviewed most of the pubs we found closed in Cambridge, as New Year's Day does mean pubs have strange opening hours, a pub with such a poor welcome does deserve a special mention and a rating of 0/10, as the casual customer cannot get a beer in the evening here.

A nice place, but I'd feel more assured if it had a hygiene rating of more than "1*/5*" ("Major Improvement Necessary") by the Cambridge City Council. A good place to drink, but I would be hesitant about food until it's got a better rating

One of tghe better pubs in Cambridge (fewer students than most).

A very pleasant pub with quality real ales, excellent food with generous portions and at affordable prices, a pleasant, enjoyable and peaceful pub, well managed with customers needs at the top of their priority list. In short an extremely pleasant local I can thoroughly recommend.
