Pickerel30 Magdalene Street
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
One of several claimants to be the oldest pub in Cambridge. Whether true or not, the interior has been much altered with only portions of the internal walls remaining from what must have been a warren of little rooms. There are still a good variety of drinking spaces though and some genuinely old features including roof beams, old brickwork, fireplace etc. Courtyard garden. Its constantly changing guest beers often includes regional ales. Since the Spirit Group, including Taylor Walker, was taken over by Greene King, beers from the Bury St Edmunds brewer are more in evidence than previously. Weston's Old Rosie cider is also available. A pickerel is a baby pike.
