ales from the on-site micro-brewery or sample some local and
international craft beers from our every changing range. We like to call it the complete pub!

< Who are we going to meet? >


Head Brewer

Past experience: Previously Brewer/owner at Fellows Brewery and prior to that working in biotech.

People/businesses that have influenced you: William Bass who sold his haulage firm to the Pickford family at the age of 60 to start a brewery.

Favourite Beer: Box Steam Chuffin' Ale or Buntingford Polar Star

Favourite Food: Has to be a Sunday Roast, plenty of rich gravy and a huge Yorkshire pudding.

Favourite Restaurant: The Curry Palace on Cottenham High Street.


Head Chef

Past experience: Been in the industry since I was about 14, started in Huddersfield as waiter at the Hilton, my first chef job was in a pub in Yorkshire in the middle of nowhere but had a good food rep. I suppose that’s where I got the bug. Then I went to London in the mid. Nineties when the whole “gastro pub” thing was kicking off, my first head chef job was in Islington in a small pub called the crown, it was owned by Fullers smith and turners and to cut a very long story short that’s where I met Rupert Clarke who is now the CEO of city pub co. east, he said “we are opening this place, it should be fun etc” we didn’t realise it would turn into the monster that the brew house is but that makes it all the more pleasantly challenging. I like to draw and very early on Rupert got me doing all the art work for the brew house which I love doing.

People/businesses that have influenced you: I’m a big film fan and a monthly subscriber to Empire magazine, I know this sounds irrelevant, but I like to read about the whole process of making a film, from the script to the story boards etc. then I get to see the film that ive got so excited about & something I’ve noticed is directors surround themselves with talent and strong people, I like to believe that’s what I try to do, and it can be hard because sometimes ego gets in the way, you have to be willing to accept you don’t have all the answers…so although ive gone off track that’s it ha ha.

Favourite Beer: I love our beers and im not just saying that and its great talking to mark the brewer about them (and drawing the pumps) but other than that I love the brew dog stuff and I like the oakhams as well, I will also say I change my mind all the time, I tend to get a bit obsessive with one then bored of it and have to move on.

Favourite Food: Thing is working in the “posh pub game” its usually the last thing I want to eat and if I’m honest the fine dining thing doesn’t really do it for me so I tend to go spicy, curries, Thai, North African, I also love a good honest burger, my dad was a Yorkshire butcher so I was brought up on stews and roasts and I will say I still love a good roast, each component has to be right or it goes to pot. Never understood why it took my mum 8hrs to cook it though.

Favourite Restaurant: Masala zone , I used to go there alot when I lived in london, it’s a small chain, I went again last year after my 40th birthday with all my close friends, the day after a big night out and again this year with my son before he went away, they do “grande talis” which is an amazing thig for any curry lover and the foods always very satisfying.


Pub Manager

Past experience: Worked in a mix of sites, everything from hostels and student bars in Brighton to high end restaurants in Kensington. My love for proper beer and honest, fresh British food has brought me to Cambridge, I place I absolutely love.

People/businesses that have influenced you: Having worked for Young’s I am a big admirer of what they have done with the business over the past 10 years. Craft Beer Co. and Brew Dog are also good operators.

Favourite Beer: Apart for the ones we brew? I enjoy Sapporo beer or Citra by Oakham Ales and

Favourite Food: I’m a big fan of Asian cuisine, particular Indian and Thai. I tend to stick to classic British or meaty fish most of the time

Favourite Restaurant: Having only recently moved to Cambridge I’m discovering my new favourites most weeks! Gaucho at the O2 and Cantina Laredo Covert Garden are probably my two favourite London restaurants.
