Loved the atmosphere and the character of the place. The staff were not exceptional but it was compensated by the patrons and general welcoming atmosphere. Great pub and great selection of ales.

Bad service. Rude barmaid. We asked for the burger and beer offer for £10 at 8.30 which is on till 9 and they said they don't do it anymore. The barmaid was disrespectful and extremely rude. Mediocre food.

Had a fantastic night here tonight.... booked a table for 8 of us plus a relatively well-behaved pooch. The food, atmosphere, beer, Prosecco, staff were all top notch. Of all the pubs in Cambridge this is definitely a firm favourite.

This pub is excellent. Tucked away on a residential street, it's a quiet and small pub but has a lot to offer. Always find great beers on tap and the menu is great. A personal favorite for sure.

Stopped by Free Press whilst pub hopping through Cambridge this past weekend. As others have described, Free Press is a traditional cozy pub with primarily cask conditioned beers that can be sipped while playing a selection of board games. Though we did not order any...More
