Almost 900 pints of local beers and cider were quaffed by visitors to the Townhouse pub’s annual beer festival.

The Market Street pub hosted Three Blind Mice, from Little Downham, and Pickled Pig, from Stretham, among a host of locally brewed beverages that also included Cambridgeshire-based Buntingford and Moonshine.

The festival, the pub’s 13th, ran over three days and saw hundreds of punters sample the brews.

Landlord Alastair Morrison said: “It went really well, it was nice to have something different on and the local brews were very well received.”
