user reviews of the Prince of Wales Feathers, Castor

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

This village pub was my favourite of 10 visited in Cambridgeshire on Saturday. The ale range is good. The standard ales are Adnams Broadside & Woodforde's Wherry. But guests were all unusual - Castor Ales Hopping Toad (brewed just up the road), Magpie Wanderers, Humpty Dumpty Reedcutter & Ridgeside Cascadia. Whilst I was expecting several ciders and was slightly disappointed that there was only one, it was one I'd never tried before - Watergull Orchards Strawberry Cider. Their Lime Cider had just finished. Most people were dining and of the diners, the majority were outside. Cricket was on the TV. The best pub in the village and worth making a detour to.

An excellent, friendly village pub. Hadn't been in for a while, but popped in the other lunchtime. The barman and the locals were all really friendly and welcoming. Nice touch was the barman recommending against having a particular ale as it was coming near the end of the barrel - a small thing, but it's the small things that count.

Had pints of Phipps IPA and Palmers IPA, and both were in excellent nick.

The pub is comfortable with various drinking areas. If you want a quite pint, there's a case of books to browse - mainly about beer and pubs, and there's a selection of boardgames too to keep the kids amused.

Can't fault the place really

This seems to be a great community pub in a very attractive village. There was a whole mix of age ranges present, and the various pub games on offer (pool, darts, backgammon) were all being taken advantage of. There was also a fruit machine, quiz machine and a plasma on the wall, although this was not obtrusive.

There’s a couple of small courtyard gardens which offer a pleasant outside space, one with a view of the road/village. There was a fairly short, but decent enough bar snack menu with pub staples such as ham, egg & chips but also some more unusual dishes like fishcakes wrapped in pancetta. I tried the ham, and whilst it was perhaps a tad expensive at £7.95, it was a decent herb-crusted joint and came with both a small pot of tomato chutney and a jug of vinaigrette dressing, so it’s a step up from your usual pub food.

There was a very good choice of beers on the bar as follows – Riverhead Deer Porter, Adnams Broadside, Ne’er Castor Clout, Woodforde’s Brew 78, John Smith’s Cask and Oakham JHB. Ciders were also well represented with Stowford Press (a pleasant change from the omnipresent Strongbow around these parts) plus Oliver’s Perry and Oliver’s Choice from Cromwell Ciders.

The pub seemed quite busy for a Monday night which is great to see in the current climate. It just goes to show that if you do things right you can still attract the punters in, even with two other pubs in the village. I’m surprised this hasn’t had another review in the last five years.

Great local pub. We got off the A1 and were hungry so we found this pub and had probably the best pub food I have ever had. Tried two beers, Newby Wyke White Squall and Oakham JHB which were both excellent. Were made very welcome by Martin, his staff and the regulars so now we always try to visit whenever we are anywhere nearby.

A friendly local village pub, offers a guest ale and Adnams draught ale alongside other mainstream brands, live music night on Saturdays, home cooked food at weekends, thriving pub life with darts, pool, quizzes and an annual hunt meet hosted on The village Green on Christmas Eve. The huge rivals are The Royal Oak, Castor.
