A medium sized venue with a capacity of 200, running mainly on a venue-hire basis.

About us

We’re a medium sized venue in Cambridge. We operate mainly on a venue-hire basis where you rent the space, PA and sound tech to run your own night. We take no cut of tickets or merch, simply drink sales and food as we are a pub as well as a grass-roots venue.

How to get a gig

All booking enquiries should come through the 'How to Hire' page of our website, which details full availability, venue specs and policies.


We have level access into the venue, but limited accessibility to the rest of the pub and toilets. We have a full access policy and more information available via the ‘Access Info’ section on our website.
