This is one of my favourite places in the UK, and I'm not kidding. I've never spent much time in 'the other half' of the pub, as I purposefully hang a left after the threshold, glance about for a spare chair and say 'a pint...More

I concur with the majority of reviewers in finding the Queens Head a favourite pub. The weathered tables and chairs, the welcoming wood fire in the lounge, the old pub games, the great and well-kept beer. Yes, the menu is limited but I always go...More

A visit to see my Brother in Cambridge would not be the same without a visit to this fine, unchanged establishment of a Sunday lunchtime. No airs and graces, and certainly no piped muzak. Just fine beer from the wood, a limited but wholesome menu...More

As a CAMRA member, I feel obliged to say that this a great traditional pub. You don't often find pubs with gravity feed barrels any more. The soup is good and filling, but there's not much choice, apart from sandwiches and baked potatoes (which were...More

Food choices are limited but good. The soup is fantastic and the bread it's served with is the stuff of dreams. Pub is sweet (although not necessarily in a beautiful way) and the open fire was great.

Charming country Boozer stuck in a time warp, Never changes and a great place to enjoy a mug of varying colour soup and a plate of sandwiches or good old toast and dripping. Good selection of beers on offer and characterful change from the norm.

Soup by the colour, home smoked salmon, roast beef sandwiches & the best Stilton & home made pickle sandwich anywhere. The ale is exemplary & straight from the barrel. The setting is two centuries ago so don't expect any brass pumps or screens or even...More
