The Royal Standard was originally built before most of the Victorian housing in the Romsey Town area was, thanks to a far-sighted brewer who presumably predicted the expansion of Mill Road past the railway line - it's at a slight angle to the road, probably as a result of predating it. Following almost a decade when it was a restaurant and then a charity shop, and after several rounds of planning applications from the developers who bought the site, the Royal Standard reopened on 22nd October 2015 as a pub, albeit smaller, and with a vastly reduced garden. It immediately became a fine addition to Cambridge's pub scene. Bottled beers, changing keg beers (including Duchesse de Bourgogne) are frequently Belgian but there are plenty of British options as well, including locally and regionally brewed cask ales. It offers a range of real cider, including several locally produced ones. Wide selection of gins. The kitchen is run by Tzatziki who offer a Greek menu which is also available to take away.
