The former White Hart became the acclaimed Backstreet Bistro in 2004 but returned to being a pub on 23rd February 2017. The Petersfield becomes the fifth City Pub Company premises in Cambridge. Real ales include those brewed at sister pub the Cambridge Brew House. The entrance leads into a large L-shaped main bar, decorated in a fairly traditional manner with modern touches. There is also a more intimate smaller room behind the bar. There are five handpumps, which will often have at least one Cambridge Brew House beer with the rest dispensing ever-changing guest beers. The terrace outside has separate non-smoking and smoking areas.
