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 £6 corkage for drinking in. Corkage is free on all still wines over £30.

We also have a thirty strong gin list for G&Ts, 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, and of course our famous Food Truck events with the likes of Steak and Honour.


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



We often host wine tastings and other pop-up events during the week. 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 via the strap on our homepage.
