Exploring Cambridge > Drinking in CambridgeCambridge has a rich variety of pubs of all types. Two especially worth visiting are The Eagle in the city centre, a former coaching inn with its famous Airman’s Bar, and the Green Dragon, a very old pub and genuine ‘local’ that is about a mile along the river from us.
Closer to us is the Fort St George, one of the oldest pubs in Cambridge, with low, beamed ceilings. Its attractive location, by the river overlooking Midsummer Common, makes it very popular, especially in summer. There are many other pubs at Mitcham’s Corner.
There is a lively atmosphere at the area called Quayside, a ten minute walk along the river from our house. There are bars (some with cocktails, others with coffee), outside tables, and amusement to be had from watching people punting along the river (see sport)

If your drink is coffee, we think the best in Cambridge is at Savino's cafe in Emmanuel Street. It also sells paninis, salads, cakes and homemade soup.
