When it opened, in November 2013, this was Cambridge's first new pub in over a decade but it started a trend. An impressive Georgian townhouse, EM Forster once lived here, formerly used as Cambridge University's pensions office. Extensively refurbished with multiple rooms across three floors providing a variety of drinking and dining areas. The rear terraced patio garden provides for outdoor eating and drinking and is separated from the smokers' alley. Two real ciders and four changing cask ales are joined by 24 keg beers from both the UK and the rest Europe, with an emphasis on craft. The handpumps for the cask ales and real ciders (listed on separate boards above the main keg beer list) are in the smaller section of the bar but ordering them is normally at the main bar. The keg beer prices quoted on the board are for the volumes listed alongside. Food is upmarket, but homemade cold bar snacks are available at all times if you do not fancy a full meal.
