Easily the best real ale pub in Cambridge. Seventeen handpumps,excellent service.The Crafty Ales were very good.Hard to find very tucked away.

Our final pub in Cambridge was the Maypole and it was a fitting end to our day. It's a little hidden away from the main action. But a total of 13 ales were on - Tiny Rebel Hank, Grain Lignum Vitae, Humpty Dumpty Shaltai Baltai & Red Mill, Three Blind Mice Pirate Hop & Uncle Buckthorn, Shortts Farm Strummer, Tring Black Hawk, Wiper & True Milk Stout, Milton Justinian, St Austell Proper Job & Adnams Bitter & Broadside. Ciders and perry were Cromwells Oliver's Session, Lilleys Pear & Raspberry & Gladiator, Seacider Medium & Westons Old Rosie. The pub has two rooms. I seem to remember the rear one being larger. But most people were in the smaller front bar. I need to come back when I'm a little more sober. But my first impressions were very positive.

What a gem. The beer range was great and the food excellent. The staff could not be faulted and helped carry the beers over to our table in the garden. We spent several hours there trying some very good beers.

A great location and an interesting range of beers. Tried a variety and all were good but as others have said the stronger beers at over £5 a pint are very expensive.

A very nice community pub down a pleasant side street. My only gripe would be that it is waaay expensive even for Cambridge - £4 a pint average and the foreign bottled beer prices really taking the p**s. Even homegrown bottled beers like Brewdog's Punk IPA were £5.80 for a 330ml bottle, so just imagine the U.S. and Belgian prices! The food was very good, but once again £3-5 more than it really should be. I really liked the place and it's staff, but the prices are a bit off-putting.
