The Pickerel is one of the oldest pubs in Cambridge and is situated on the picturesque Magdalene Street. We're just a stroll up from the river and within walking distance of the colleges in the city centre.

We’re proud to say our menu is packed with Great British pub food classics, including iconic dishes like our hand-battered fish and chips, pie and mash and succulent burgers. Our drinks include a great range of real ales and an extensive wine list. Our cask ales range has some of the best in British beers, including the new 1730, our very own special pale ale. The team at the Pickerel look forward to welcoming you soon at this fantastic traditional pub in Cambridge.
