Cambridge Wine Merchants Wine Bar, Bridge Street
Reckoned "the best wine bar in Cambridge", with awesome views over to Magdalene College.
The bar is extremely popular so we're often full on weekend evenings. We do not take take reservations, just show up and we'll find you a seat.
We sometimes host tasting events early in the week from 7.30pm which fill the bar. Just check our events calendar http://www.cambridgewine.com/index.asp to see what's on. Better still, come along to the events. Join our mailing list here
Here's how it works
Wine Bar - by the glass or bottle from our multi-award winning wine list or choose any of the 900+ wines from the shop and pay a corkage charge. For still wines of a retail price of £30+ you pay only the retail price. We also have the most advanced Enomatic machine dispensing samples and higher end wines by the glass.
There's food to choose from: delicious deli platters, scoth eggs etc. We don't serve hot meals but there's enough on offer to constitute lunch or a light dinner.
Our by the glass list starts at £4.75 and includes sherry, port, dessert wines and various oddities hiding in the fridge.
There is always a Champagne offer by the bottle, plus lots of gin, whisky, port, sherry etc.
Party venue - book part or all of the bar area for your own tutored tasting event, drinks party or dinner party. Seats 60. We have other central party locations available too, email firstname.lastname@example.org for info.
