Globe Inn

Globe Inn, Cambridge

Picture source: Stephen Harris


The Globe Inn was situated at 529 Newmarket Road. This pub closed in the 1990s and is now in use as a restaurant.  Former brewery buildings can be seen at the rear.
 
As a teenager in 1960s Cambridge I was a keen angler and spent many summer nights on the River Cam fishing for eels back then they were never considered endangered. I kept my catch and the following morning I would sling the bucket over the handlebar of my bike and take them to the Globe Inn where the landlady, having made sure that they were all still alive, would pay me for them, often with a 10/- note. Serious money at that point in my life!
There was a Corona bottling plant/depot just across the road and the former Cambridge United football ground was next door. Happy days!
