When we’re closed …

If you’re visiting Cambridge for the festival, or maybe just looking for somewhere to have a drink while we’re closed in the daytime (on Tuesday to Friday we’re shut 3-5pm), take the time to visit one of our excellent pubs. Here are some suggestions.

Top of the list is The Geldart. Our current branch pub of the year, it opens at 5pm during the week. But this week it will open at 3pm on Thursday and Friday.

Close by to the festival is The Maypole. A former branch pub of the year, and Good Beer Guide regular, it’s been owned by the same family for over 41 years.

Also quite near to the festival is Thirsty. They’re having a celebration week that includes some special beers, including collaboration launches with Baron and Pastore.
