      After clarification by the government on which businesses may operate during the tightened restrictions, breweries with off-sales licences are permitted to sell beer to take home. The Grain Drive-Thru will therefore be open for business unless further restrictions are applied. Due to the COVID19 outbreak and the closures of pubs, we have a brewery full of beer but no pubs to sell it to, so we are turning the brewery into a Beer Collection Drive-Thru. Cleanliness and sterilisation is second nature to us, and you will find the Grain Drive-Thru to be a far lower risk and more sterile environment than any supermarket or shop you will visit. This service is aimed at those local to the brewery, so first see if a brewery closer to you offers a similar service. You drive in at one end, place your order and pay using contactless payment or cash, then drive to the next door to pick up your beer.

    • Dumpling Tree Telephone(01223) 240808 59 Perne Road Cambridge CB1 3RX

    • Eagle Telephone(01223) 505020 8 Bene't Street Cambridge CB2 3QN

      Probably the most famous pub in Cambridge, with its galleried courtyard and back room ceiling covered with graffiti applied by World War Two airmen. This is also where Watson and Crick announced that, in nearby labs, they had worked out the double helical structure of DNA, the "secret of life". A window at the back of the pub has been open for 300 years - because it's believed a child died in the pub during a fire when the window couldn't be opened. For a time in the early 90s its future was in doubt because of possible redevelopment but common sense prevailed and the pub reopened in 1992. The price to pay was a major expansion of the original two-bar layout to incorporate former office premises fronting Bene't Street. However, this work was sensitively executed and the "new" areas, especially the panelled room to the right of the front entrance, are very attractive. Food from the standard GK managed house menu is served 11 - 10 every day. The pumpclip for the "Eagle's DNA" gives no clues as to its origins but we assume it's made by Greene King and is probably a rebadging of another beer (Morland Original?) Guest beers include ales from Milton brewery.

      Parts of this riverside pub date back to the 16th century and it was originally built on an island. It gets its name from its resemblance to the Fort St George in Madras, which when built in 1639, was the first British fort in India. (the pub used to be callled the Fort St George in England so people wouldn't confuse the two but the last two words have sadly been dropped). From the front door you turn right into the snug which has lost some of its character over the years but retains an open fire and tiled floor. The large main bar has a wood-boarded floor and rather spartan furnishings but great views of the river. To the left of the entrance is the restaurant, part parquet floored and part quarry tiled with some vestiges of the old walls but mostly repro fixtures and fittings. Again lots of windows onto the river. Food is from the standard GK managed house menu, served 11am to 9pm (8pm Sunday). If this is a bit much for you, slum it next door at the Michelin-starred Midsummer House. In front of the pub is a large patio overlooking the common. Its seasonal popularity is down to its location on the common next to the river.

The upstairs is even more higgledy-piggledy than the ground floor; the latter has a bare-boarded U-shaped layout with unused fireplaces, a couple of telly screens and a table footy alcove. The clientele is largely of an alternative persuasion and the atmosphere can get quite funky though it's also a friendly place. Happy hour 5 -7, Mon - Fri.
