AJ outside the Live and Let Live, July 2005

Now this is a back-street pub well worth visiting if you're in Cambridge. You'll have to look carefully at a local street map to find it, or alternatively click on the mapping links above this text and zoom in a couple of levels. Believe me, if you can catch it when it's open, it's well worth the visit. You'll find a healthy mix of young and old, locals, students with the odd visitor such as myself. A dominantly wood interior with bare-board floors, wood panelling, heavy wooden tables and chairs. You'll be kept up to date with forthcoming concerts displayed on posters on the walls. Just as the Dolphin Inn, Shrewsbury, described elsewhere in this guide, this pub is gas-lit and is certainly the perfect place to enjoy a quiet evening drink as the sun sets to the west. On most Sunday evenings you can relax to the sound of folk and acoustic music though we were fortunate enough to be in the city during the annual Cambridge Folk Festival a mile or two down the road.

The pub offers a particularly fine range of real ales with an emphasis on East Anglian brews such as Nethergate Umbel Ale (abv 3.8%), a personal favourite of mine, a wonderful mix of coriander, hops and malt, this beer will not disappoint. To complement the beer they also offer good home-cooked food including a fry-up on Saturday mornings and a reasonably priced roast on Sundays though there's no food served on Sunday evenings. I wish I lived up the road!


Oh my word it's Terry! July 2003
