This lovely restaurant tucked away in Green Street has created its own Gin and comes highly recommended! Spain’s historic markets inspired Mercado, and it focuses on Galician and Basque heritage. Their high-quality ingredients are sourced from small sustainable producers.
Tucked away behind Bridge Street, this hidden gem is a local favourite. The Maypole is a free house, which means that they can sell a greater selection of real ales and more local beers from smaller breweries. They often organise beer festivals, serve Italian fayre and stock over 50 gins!
Just like craft beer, Gin is on a roll too. Microbreweries and distilleries are opening up everywhere. And in and around Cambridge too! Some distil from their backroom, and others have larger distilleries. Whilst we taste our way through these local Gins, we’ll be back soon with a map!
