Real Ale is available here
53 Ballingdon St, CO10 2BZ
The former King's Head reopened at the end of 2017 as a pub/café aimed particularly (though by no means exclusively) at cyclists. There is a secure bike lock-up and a basic toolkit is available if needed (there's also a good bike shop nearby).
They aim to provide a warm, cosy environment and specialise in local ales. Coffee, wine, tea and simple food are also available.
The Cyclist is totally cash-free. So you will need a card to pay for food & drinks.
The building dates from the early 17th century.
