What the pub says about themselves - please email in to

The Empress is open seven days a week; from 5pm - 11pm Sunday to Thursday, 5pm - 1am Friday and 2pm - 1am Saturday.

Children are welcome in our family pub and our pigs and rabbits are friendly, but we tend to get quite busy after 8:30pm and would ask that parents consider taking children home after this time.

What CAMRA say about this pub

This corner backstreet local in the Romsey Town area of Cambridge is ever popular, serving the community for many years. Three main drinking areas form a U-shape around the central bars. Pool, darts and bar billiards are played, as well as a range of board games. Regular beer festivals are held. The pub was branch pub of the year in 2010. The garden is home to a number of pigs. Some may regard the annual festive decoration as excessive.
