About the Pub

A much loved, cozy and friendly L-shaped pub, with a 'local' feel despite being on a main road. The walls and ceiling are adorned with an eclectic collection of old posters and pig paraphernalia. In the evenings the intimate lighting is enhanced by candles on the tables. Behind the main room and down a short flight of steps is a smaller back room. The WCs and the enclosed patio garden are accessed from here.

Quality beer and music lie at the Pig's heart. Beers from local breweries, often Cambridge Moonshine, are regularly available. The pub also offers craft keg beers. Basic 'pub grub' is served weekday lunchtimes only. Live music Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday evenings and some Fridays. 7pm opening Saturday & Sunday. Annual Pigfest charity music festival in May.

The pub is named after a previous licensee, known as Mick the Pig, who had a pilot's licence.

The much loved pub is under threat due to plans to redevelop the area. The developers have told the leaseholders to leave by the end of October 2021. The pub closed on Saturday 23 October 2021.
