Self-confessedly quirky establishment whose name commemorates a Cambridge pastime which involves/involved drinking a pint in each pub along the street (there used to be lots). When owned by Whitbread many years ago it was refitted as a "fun pub" and it still bears the scars e.g. carpets and furniture on the ceiling. The upstairs is even more higgledy-piggledy than the ground floor; the latter has a bare-boarded U-shaped layout with unused fireplaces, a couple of telly screens and a table footy alcove. The clientele is largely of an alternative persusion and the atmosphere can get quite funky though it's also a friendly place. Happy hour 5 -7, Mon - Fri.
