George, I could not mail to your address so I am making a general post.
I read your post regarding pubs in the Cambridge area. I have regular
business in the area and can make some recommendations.

1. There is a place called The Mill (also has a sign called Tap and Spire)
which is located on the river Cam just down the street from the
Garden House hotel. They support CAMRA and always have a rotating
variety of real ale. Occasionally you might find the CAMRA Newspaper
there for your reading pleasure.

2. Nearby is The Anchor. More of a college hangout (it is a college town)
and they have live jazz during the week. The Boddington's and Abbott
Ale are good.

3. There is a brew pub in Cambridge (I can't remember the name). I have
never been there since the locals did not have much good to say about
it.

In general, a good strong ale from that area is Abbott Ale made by
Greene King. It has been a favorite of mine for some time. Pints
of beer range from 1.25 - 1.65 pounds depending on brand and gravity.
England is expensive, be prepared.
Cambridge is about 1 1/2 to 2 hours by car from London. You get
used to driving on the other side of the road pretty quickly.

I could go on, but Cambridge is a beautiful town and there will be plenty
of exploring you'll do on your own. Cambridge is a small place and you can
easily walk all over town.

Have a good trip

cheers,
chuck mryglot


ps.
I appreciate all the information/advice you post. I am just getting into
brewing festbiers and look forward to reading your book.
