85 Gwydir Street
Open all day
This is a quiet back street pub with a collection of rowing memorabilia. It includes the bow section of the Cambridge boat that rammed a barge and sank before the start of the 1984 boat race.
Apparently the present landlord rowed for Cambridge. In fact if you don't realise this is a boat race pub you must have your eyes closed as there are so many photographs on the walls.
It's a multi-roomed pub and most are cluttered, but two are simply decorated with bare boards and simple furnishings - candles on tables, etc. Check out the collection of oars in one room.
As for the beer, there is a changing range of up to 17 ales, also wine and malt whisky.
Food is available (Mon-Fri 12-2 and 6-9pm; Sat 12-3 and 6-9pm, Sun 12-4 and 6-9pm) and is traditional served in a conservatory dining area.
There is a beer garden for the children and dogs welcome there.
None as yet.
