Bordering Queens' College is a medieval lane, at the end of which stands this attractive pub, right by the bridge over the River Cam. Head for the riverside patio with a local real ale, or an Aspalls cider, and watch rookie punters struggling with their tricky craft – another definition of pole position, perhaps. A good choice of food includes sea bass fillet with pumpkin and sage risotto; honey-glazed Barbary duck leg with parsnip mash; and beer-battered fish and chips. Sandwiches, sausage rolls and Scotch eggs are available too.
