The Bridge, Waterbeach

Went to a lovely pub yesterday, the Bridge at Waterbeach, just outside Cambridge. It’s in a great location, right on the banks of the river Cam, and has a pretty patio area with giant parasols and outdoor heaters where you can sit and watch the boats go by whilst eating a spot of lunch and enjoying some fine ales. It’s a Chef and Brewer pub, and the 3 cask ales on offer when I was there were Elgoods Golden Newt,  Charles Wells Bombardier, and Courage Directors – needless to say, I chose the Golden Newt (can’t resist a golden ale) which went down very well! The pub itself is olde worlde, with nooks and crannies and old wooden beams, and is dimly lit with electric candle-style chandeliers on the ceilings – I can’t wait to see it at Christmas with its open fires and decorations. They are advertising their Christmas menu at the moment – in fact, that’s probably what started me thinking along these festive lines when it’s only August…

You can walk or cycle the few miles from Cambridge to Waterbeach along the tow path, and it must be a welcoming sight to suddenly come across this pub over the river with its gardens stretching down to the water’s edge and seeing boats moored up, their occupants enjoying a beer on the patio. The Crawlplanner website has some more info about the pub.
