About the Pub

2018 Cambridge & District CAMRA Pub of the Year.

The Castiglione family, who have run this city centre pub since 1982, bought the freehold from Punch Taverns in 2009. It has since become a showcase for quality beers and won Vincent the Branch's first Real Ale Champion award in 2010. Up to sixteen ever changing beers are on offer including LocAles, with an emphasis on microbreweries. Also on offer is a range of world bottled beers, canned beers, an extensive list of single malt whiskies and many gins. They have three beer festivals a year and frequent tap takeovers.

The interior comprises a main room featuring a large mural of a village scene with maypole dancing. To the rear is a smaller room and upstairs is a function room. A pleasant sun-trap patio also provides covered space with heaters. Food focuses on home-cooked Italian dishes, though traditional pub food is also available.

The metal fencing that separates the patio from Park Street car park includes a double helix in honour of Francis Crick who lived next door when he and James Watson worked out the structure of DNA.

What now comprises the Maypole was at one time two pubs, the Maypole in Portugal Place and the Plume of Feathers in Park Street.
