I hadn't planned to pay a return visit to the Free Press yesterday afternoon. But I was hanging around in the area waiting for the Blue Moon (not listed on BITE) to open its doors and rejected the chance of a swift one in the Duke of Cambridge (formerly Bakers) just around the corner, as Abbot was the only choice. Whilst the Free Press is also a Greene King house and a much more comfortable one at that, the selection is much better here - Greene King IPA & Abbot, Morland Old Golden Hen, St Austell Tribute, Black Sheep Best Bitter, Timothy Taylor Landlord & Otter Amber. They also have Weston's Old Rosie cider. Sadly, I read an article in the local CAMRA magazine that Greene King have stopped producing their XX Mild on a regular basis. So, the pub no longer appears to have a dark beer.

An Ancient pub which would be very good if the service was up to scratch but sadly they leave a soppy kid behind the bar who wants to be elsewhere doing something other than serve.Low rating.

A lovely little backstreet boozer in Cambridge, that is a Greene King pub. There was nobody in when we arrived on a weekday afternoon. The pub has 3 small rooms. The snug is tiny. IPA, Abbot & XX Mild are the 3 regular GK beers. Guests were Hook Norton Grey Goose, Wimbledon Windmill Pale, Sadlers Peaky Blinder & Hadrian Border Tyneside Blonde. Old Rosie was the cider. We were soon joined by a couple of younger drinkers who were on the Sambuca! Tempting, but the mild sufficed for me on this occasion. Worth seeking out.

Relaxing little pub. Old school, basic decor but clean with good choice of ales. Food superb and great value but thankfully is a side note to the beer.

Arrived yesterday lunchtime, seemed to be populated by loud rich student types. Beer was good but at London prices.
