Still closest decent pub to the station. Despite being a Well's house there are usually other (and better) offerings)

Just had a refurb. The walls are dazzlingly white, the lighting more so. Gone is the bike hanging from the celiing, as are the old beer festival posters, replaced by prints of 'old Cambridge' and the like that can be got from any tourist tat shop in town. The genuine organic heritage of the place has been ditched in favour of fakery. And the beer selection, dominated by Wells Youngs restricted offerings, is as uninspiring as ever. Majorly disappointing.

Why do I not come in here more regularly? It has such an amazing atmosphere, no other pub like it in Cambridge. Long, narrow bar, double height ceilings create a feeling of space not found in many of Cambridge's other back street pubs. In my top 5 Cambridge Pub list for sure.

A big pub owned by Charles Wells, the Salisbury Arms is close to the station. It offers half a dozen or so real ales from the Wells and Young stable, with guests including St Austell Tribute and Adnams Broadside when I visited. I plumped for the only beer from a micro, namely Long Blonde from the Sussex based Long Man Brewery which was well kept if somewhat cold.

The building comprises of one long bar with some nice frosted glass windows, and is pleasant enough. However in an area of fine pubs such as the Devonshire, Kingston Arms and Cambridge Blue the Salisbury suffers as though its beers are well kept the choice is not as good and could be found almost anywhere. Nevertheless, still worth a visit if you are in the area.

This is about the closest decent pub to the station. For a Well's pub it serves an excellent pint of Adnams.
