The Carlton Arms looks like a bit of a dive from the outside. But at least it was open, unlike most pubs in Cambridge when we visited. It turned out to be a really good pub with a decent ale selection and an even better cider selection. I'm not sure if the pub is West Indian-owned. But many of the clientele were certainly of West Indian descent and speciality foods included jerk chicken and curried goat. The interior has some strange decorations. But it's clearly a popular place and the locals seemed a fairly friendly bunch, if not a little inebriated. There was even a couple of complimentary cheeses we were invited to sample. Ales were Oakham JHB, Adnams Broadside, Hook Norton Hooky & Sharps Doom Bar. Ciders were Cornish Orchards Farmhouse, Hogans Panking Pole, Gwynt y Ddraig Black Dragon, Fiery Fox, Happy Daze & Two Trees Perry, Westons Old Rosie & Orchard Pig Philosopher & The Hogfather. I was spoilt for choice. As you can see from my first sentence, this is an unassuming place that exceeded all of my expectations.

Update based on a visit last year. On visit today I had lovely pints of Elgoods and Tydd Steam from the barrel - defintely worth a trip for the beer quality even if the pub is not as obviously welcoming as before. Sausage menu is great.

Has certainly re-opened and still serving a decent range of well-kept beers from small but competent brewers, even though it has lost a bit of the quality it had under the previous landlords. The food is very good pub food.

The pub is now set to re-open on 30th July.
