Little Rose Wins Community Pub of the Year
The Little Rose Pub has won the Rural Community Pub of the Year Award from the Cambridge and District Branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (Camra).
It’s in recognition of what Camra thinks is the way that the pub is rapidly becoming a focus of the village community since Neil and Sue Poole took charge of it in July last year. Camra cited things like the Parents and Todlers group that meets once a week there, Bingo, the Quiz, and wide variety of sports teams as well as special events like Wakes, Live Music and Charity Fundraising Nights as reasons for why the Little Rose has won the award.

The Cambridge Branch of the Campaign for Real Ale has visited the pub many times and paid a special visit to assess it when judging for this award. The win came as a complete surprise to Neil and Sue. They took over running the pub when it was sold by Greene King to a property company called Wrenbridge last July. Since then they’ve worked tirelessly to encourage as many village groups and societies to use it as possible for whatever they want. For the clubs the pub is a free meeting place as Neil and Sue don’t charge.
The Parents and Toddlers meet once a week on a Wednesday at 3pm, Bingo is held on the second and fourth Wednesday every month at 8pm, the Quiz is held on the last Friday of every month at 8pm. The pub also has Darts, Cribbage and Petanque teams.
