The pub is found in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, CB2 3AR.

This Wetherspoon pub was purpose-built as the Regal cinema, in 1937. It was then the most up-to-date cinema in Cambridge, a veritable palace - as it was dubbed by cinema-goers of the 1930s. Until recently, the pub in St Andrews Street had been in use as the ABC cinema.

We have visited this pub 8 times, seen 39 different beers and tried 9 of them.
