Linton, Crown
Real ale has become so popular here that a fourth handpump is planned. Cottage Silver Arrow was the guest ale recently alongside regulars Adnams Explorer and Elgoods Cambridge.

Great Abington, Three Tuns
A Meet the Brewer evening with Miles from Tim Taylor was hugely successful so landlord Chris is on the look-out for other breweries to invite. Top of the list is Potbelly of Kettering whose Welland Owl, a 4.5% golden ale, was very well received at the pub in July.

Great Wilbraham, Carpenters Arms
The restaurant opened to a full house on 17 July, completing the fully-fledged gastro pub which licensees Rick and Heather Hurley have been aiming at. The bar area continues to operate very much as a pub with Brandon Rusty Bucket and Cambridge Moonshine Barton Bitter the July offerings.

Swaffham Prior, Red Lion
Welcome to new tenants Steve and Karen Brown who arrived in August having previously run another Batemans pub in Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire. Real ales are Batemans Mild, XB, Victory and a changing guest. Food includes home-made pies, gammon, scampi and, on Fridays, fresh fish and chips with mushy peas.

Dullingham, Kings Head
Going from strength to strength under the stewardship of chef Paul. St Austell Tribute has joined Draught Bass on handpump.

Dullingham, Boot
The Beer Festival on 10/11 September will probably have been and gone when you read this - it featured unusual local ales. A recent ALE article lamented the death of the good old pub sandwich but at lunchtime in the Boot you can get them plain or toasted for just £2, with additional filling for a further 50p.

Burrough Green, Bull
After many year procrastination, Greene King have provided a new surface to the drive and car park. Negotiating the pot holes is no longer required and claims for damaged suspension are unlikely to succeed.

Brinkley, Red Lion
Beer festival planned for September.

Little Wilbraham, Hole in the Wall
Old Cannon beers from Bury St Edmunds have been making a prolonged appearance here, with Blonde Bombshell (4.2%) proving especially popular.

West Wratting, Chestnut Tree
Alfie's Restaurant opened in the dining room on 25 June. In a delightful setting you can get a starter and main for about £17 with bar meals around £7/8. Nut Fest, the big music and beer festival, is on 24 and 25 September.

Burwell, Crown
The price of a pint of Greene King IPA has risen from £2.35 to £2.50 but this still takes some beating round here.

Burwell, Five Bells
John and Carly Rowell have departed for the Grand Cayman Islands after two and a half years. Greene King Mild still occupies the guest pump and is selling well.

Fulbourn, Six Bells
The first Six Bells beer festival in early September featured an exciting list of fifteen guest ales.

Hildersham, Pear Tree
Guest ales expected back shortly.
