"Great pub, but lager a bit dodgy"

A review of The Maypole by Nick written on Wednesday 9th of July 2003


The Maypole is a top pub. Although it seems small at first, it is actually quite large with its back bar, beer garden and [occasionally open] upstairs seating area.

Unlike most Cambridge city centre pubs, it has character, mainly due to the influence of the bar staff, and hasn't been spoilt by over-commercialisation from corporate breweries.

Drinkswise, the choice is good. They serve a variety of cocktails and a choice of beers on draught. On the down side, I have experienced stomach cramps and headaches from the lager lately. Perhaps its just a problem with the barrel..
