5 Park Street
Open all day
Another new pub in Peterborough and it looks as though it will be a good one.
On this visit it had only just opened (early for the beer festival) and so was still being decorated. Nonetheless, the beers were excellent.
An outlet for Milton beers, there are three on permanently (Minotaur, Babylon and Pegasus), plus four/five guest ales. On during the beer festival were beers from Mighty Oak Bronze, Tring, Iceni and Lidstones. All were served without sparkler and tasted great in the oversized glasses. A real cider is also sold.
The decor is still in flux, but here will be a flagstone floor being laid at the time and dark wooden benches and tables. These are set about the single room in the nooks and crannies and use the chimney breast to good effect. Some high stools are also on offer around tall round tables.
The toilets are down some steps and will be the last thing to get a make over, though no sign of a disabled toilet.
There will be a beer garden too, where you can soak up the sun and watch the dogs run about (two big ones).
The bar welcomes you to the left of the entrance and has eight handpumps on it - all full.
No food here.
Well worth a short detour if you are on your way to the Palmerston/Cherry Tree/Charters. On the south of the river, not far from the beer festival and London Road where there is lots of accommodation.
