Wine Bars & Breweries

Our favourite Wine Bars & Breweries in Cambridge

Are you looking for fine wine, local gin or craft beer? We have excellent Wine Bars and Breweries in Cambridge. Unfortunately, quite a few are away from the historic centre, so we thought we map them out for you. Here is our selection of wine and beer shops in Cambridge.


The rebel of the local wine and beer scene. Sam is currently checking out the good life in OZ, where he is sourcing some lovely goodies to flock in Cambridge. Quirky place, great booze, and to top off fab street food. He’ll back soon so watch this space for great stuff from down South!


Having been voted 3 times as the UK’s NO.1 Independent Drinks Retailer, Cambridge Wine Merchants organise tasting events regularly at their wine bars in Bridge Street and Cherry Hinton. They recently have started with online tasting events to facilitate during the pandemic.

This award-winning wine merchant opened its doors in West Cambridge in 1991 and now can be found in Great Shelford, including a wine bar. They stock a fine selection of wines offering wines from well-known areas and Croatia, Lebanon, and Slovenia.


The wine god specialising in a fine range of craft beer. Bacchanalia Wine Merchants stocks an excellent range of wine, beer and spirits with branches on Victoria Road and Mill Road. These understated wine merchants are a must visit for both craft beers and high quality wines. 


Our newest Wine Merchant in Cambridge! In 2021 Matt Hodgson opened his shop and wine bar in North Cambridge, Arbury. The name Grape Britannia is a bit of a giveaway. Indeed they specialise in English and Welsh wines.


An independent boutique wine shop set in the heart of Cambridge. Vinopolis offers a wide selection of non-screw top European wines, specialising in Georgian wine and offering wine tasting events. You can find Vinopolis just off Mill Road in Devonshire road. 


Our favourite hang out to sample beer is the small-batch brewery Calverley’s tucked away in the back street off Mill Road. In 2014 Sam and Tom started with one beer, and soon, their craft beer range expanded to 15. The Taproom is open on Thursday and Friday evening, and Saturdays.
