I went to the Mitre on the Saturday evening about 7pm, prior to the refurbishment taking place on the Monday. Though realised that the beers would be limited, I was still hoping to get a decent pint. First of all there is a column splitting the bar in two. The barman appeared to be SLOWLY serving another customer on the... More

Hi Mick, I'm sorry that you didn't have a good experience on Saturday. Unfortunately as you pointed out we were closing for refurbishment and it is necessary to hand the pub over with no beer left so it is inevitable that we would run out eventually.in regards to the pillar, it is difficult to see one end if you are...

We stopped here for a quick bite last week and found an absolute gem. Pint and a Sandwich for £7.50. Good fresh tasty pint but the winner is the Prawn Cocktail Sandwich. Thick tasty soft Ciabatta, rammed with King prawns & a lovely sauce that soaks into the bread. Impossible to eat without 2 napkins, the best sandwich I've eaten... More

It's a nice pub with a pleasant ambiance it's lots of different places to sit. The beers are always good and they serve a good variety. We choose the Nicholson Sausage Sandwich. It's this emphasis on its name linked to the pub chain, one might get the impression that this is a good quality butchery product. We were both disappointed.... More

I suppose I shouldn't be that surprised at being asked to pay £4.50 for a pint of ale in Cambridge, but it still makes me quiver. Especially when I have to ask for the pint to be filled up and have the member of staff tell me that she's trained to leave a big head because "that's the way people... More
