|I think (and hope) the future of this pub is secure. Certainly all my recent visits (admittedly always in the couple of hours after the end of work) have found it bustling with a young to middle-aged clientèle. It may come across as somewhat contrived - rather dark and lit mainly be candles on the tables - but actually it seems to work. People talking away, sampling a range of 5-6 beers including some slightly uncommon beers drawn mainly from local brewers. It does stand out as an isolated older building amongst new development but that is part of the charm. This pub is maybe not quite of the standard of the cluster of establishments near Mill Road (Live & Let Live, Cambridge Blue, Kingston Arms, Devonshire Arms & increasingly the Alexandra) but this is a well above-average pub and a good option for a before or after-show beer at the Junction (just across the bridge to the south)|

|Hogshead: yes, very much so, despite renewed threats from evil developers. I'm guessing from the date of you rcomment that you tried it on a Saturday afternoon: it only opens in the evenings at weekends.|
Now free of Punch, at least, and serving beers from local breweries.

|This is a superb pub; lovely and cosy and welcoming and just the right size - not too big nor too small. They always keep the ales in tip top condition and have a reasonable choice of beers. This has to be in my top ten of British pubs. I could easily spend all day in here, and then emerge several sheets to the wind. What an AWFUL thought! 10 out of 10.|
