A friendly atmosphere, with plenty of customers of maturer years. I'd hoped to try beers from the Grainstore brewery, but sadly there were none available. Good value food.A proper pub.

Elgood's - Cambridge Bitter3.80GoodI remember Elgoods bitter as one that when you drank it in a session it would cut through the taste of the others. Perhaps not now, but still a good malty east anglian bitter.
Tydd Steam - Armageddon5.00AcceptablePerhaps a misnomer-too sweet for ultimate death and destruction.A tawny,malty strong bitter. Not really my favourite beer of the night, but worth trying.
Butcombe - Gold4.40Not Tried

Website.

The pub is found in Helpston, Cambridgeshire, PE6 7ED.

A stone built community local. It has strong connections to the Peasant Poet John Clare, who was potman here. It has been recently renovated in a fairly northern style, with swirly carpets and a helping of whimsy. The second pub in our brief foray to the Soke of Peterborough.

We have visited this pub once, seen 3 different beers and tried 2 of them.
