About the Club

Located on a residential road in a relatively new building that was built to house the local branch of the Royal British Legion that, formed in 1922, is believed to be the fifth oldest branch in the country. In 2018 the branch membership voted to end their allegiance to the Royal British Legion and change the name of the club to the Bottisham Community Sports and Social Club. The club will continue to operate in a similar fashion and will still support the Royal British Legion including with the Poppy Appeal.

The club is a smart and comfortable modern, single story building with adjoining bowling green and car park. It has a main hall, often used for events and functions, and a smaller room for drinking and chatting. The club has many active members making it a very sociable place. Non-members making a small donation will be signed in.

Locally brewed Crafty Beers, Carpenter's Cask is one of its regular cask ales. Always a source of well kept real ale, this club excels itself at its annual beer festival in September.

Cambridge & District CAMRA Club of the Year 2017, 2018 & 2019.
