Cherry Hinton Wine Bar, Cherry Hinton Road
It was a pioneering move in Cambridge to add a wine bar to the shop here on Cherry Hinton Road six years ago.
How it works - Buy by the glass from our carefully chosen wine list, or from our top of the range Enomatic machine for higher end wines. Our by the glass range starts at under £5.
Alternatively, choose any bottle of wine from the shelves or fridge and we’ll simply add £5 corkage for drinking in. Corkage is free on all still wines over £30.
We also have a thirty strong gin list at a flat rate £4 G&T, and thirty whiskies available at varying prices by the dram.
There is food too. Deli platters, olives, and other bar snacks. Plus more substantial food for pre-booked events.
The bar is open every hour that the shop is open:
Monday – 11am-9pm
Tuesday – 11am-9pm
Wednesday – 11am-9pm
Thursday – 11am-10pm
Friday – 11am-10pm
Saturday – 10am-10pm
Sunday – 12pm-8pm
There is limited parking outside, but plenty of free parking on nearby streets, such as Coleridge Road or Hartington Grove.
We are also well connected to the rest of Cambridge with a No.3 bus stop opposite our front door.
You must be 18+ to sample, buy, or drink alcohol. We are in a residential area though, so do welcome families. Tap water is always available, as are soft drinks.
