See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Part of Greene King's Metropolitan Pub Company group. Large pub overlooking the River Cam. It rambles over four levels. The food-oriented Riverview bar is at the top then there's a smallish lobby/lounge on the ground floor with comfy chairs, padded benches a not-real fire and polished floorboards. Steps lead down to the split-level Riverside Bar, once home to a Jazz Club frequented by one Roger Barratt - he so admired one of the resident musicians, his near-namesake Sid Barrett that he changed his own name to Syd. He then went on to form little known local combo, Pink Floyd. Doors lead from there out to the riverside terrace. The building itself dates back to 1843 when part of the site was used for mooring boats, hence the name. Greene King IPA plus guest ales available. Home cooked food. Card payments only.
