About the Pub

This small, two-room city-centre pub has a truly friendly atmosphere. It's one of the four remaining pubs on the King Street Run pub crawl, which involved a pint in each of the eight pubs with no lavatory stop. The oarsman after whom the pub is named is commemorated in the fine etched windows. Both bars are wood-panelled with Victorian counters, fixed benches and a part-glazed partition between the rooms. It is on the National Inventory as having a historic pub interior of regional importance. The humour and chatter of customers predominates. You know you're in Cambridge when you see the adverts to view University Challenge here. The ales from Greene King and its guest list are very well kept. Pub snacks available.
