"Blue Boar Hotel in Cambridge"

A review of Ha Ha by 1963Visitor written on Tuesday 29th of December 2009


This pub was indeed once known as the Blue Boar Inn. I was nine years old in August 1963 when my family spent two weeks in the Blue Boar Inn. My father, a biochemist at NIH, had a fellowship in Cambridge with Frederick Sanger. Blue Boar was a nice, comfy hotel witb a resident Abyssinian cat and a dining room just like in Faulty Towers. In those days, the hotel lobby TV was black and white, with daily news about Prime Minister Harold Macmillan. I remember posters advertising a local performance by a new rock and roll group who called themselves The Beatles. Never heard of them, or maybe we might have made an effort to see them. Years later in 2000, I wanted to see what happened to the Blue Boar. It was just a university pub, not quite like I remembered. .
