Welcome to the website for The Emperor Pub in Cambridge.

The Emperor Pub is situated at 21 Hills Road, Cambridge CB2 1NW. It is within easy walking distance of the station and the town centre.

We have been given a cask marque award to show that our real ale is of the best quality and has passed the exacting standards  set by the Casque Marque Trust. Try it for yourself and find out how great it tastes!

We opened on 28th September 2010, after completely transforming the pub with our own unique and quirky style. We turned our beer garden into a beach with sand, deckchairs, colourful tables, buckets and spades and inflatable toys. It was great for keeping your kids entertained while you chilled out with a glass of our real ale. We called it “Cambridge’s Premier Beach Resort”.

The beach has now gone and we have turned it into a pub garden. We have just invested in lots of  hanging baskets and barrels full of flowers. The tables and fences are repainted and look really nice. All flowers came from Fulbourn Manor Nurseries at the top of Newmarket Road. It’s worth a visit to their farm shop.

There’s never a dull moment at The Emperor. We have dart boards, a pool table and board games or you can test your skill with our giant Jenga. Live bands play here at the weekend; on Wednesdays on alternate months we have comedy evenings, and on Thursday evenings we have Open Mic sessions starting at 8.30pm.

Upstairs we have a function room which is available for hire. It accommodates 40 to 45 persons seated or 65 to 70 persons standing. You may set it up with or without furniture. We can also provide catering and a bar for your event plus a projector with a 104 inch screen. This can be connected to your laptop.
