Indie Tour of CB4

Eating & Drinking  |  07/03/2018

With a new road layout planned for Mitcham’s Corner and the opening of Cambridge’s second station, the area North of the river is seeing some pretty big changes. A change we are very happy to witness is the increasing number of indie outlets, so take a tour around CB4 – you will be pleasantly surprised at what you find.


Radmore Farm Shop

8-10 Victoria Avenue, CB4 1EH

Radmore Farm Shop, a family run business, sells produce from their mixed livestock and arable farm in Northamptonshire. This fantastic shop sells a full range of produce from other local suppliers and farming families too. You can also shop online and have loads of wonderful produce delivered to your door. Find out more here.



Thirsty Cambridge
46 Chesterton Road CB4 1EN
Indie drinks shop and bar, Thirsty Cambridge, aims to do things a bit differently – even (some might say) revolutionary, with wine categorised by style rather than country and 22 taps (12 lines of craft beers, 6 lines of wine and even 4 lines of cocktails) plus a packed schedule of visiting street food vans and social events. Find out more here.




79 Victoria Road, CB4 3BS

Bacchanalia was established back in 1997 and is your classic wine merchant, with a huge selection of wonderful wines, and also some of the best beers and idiosyncratic spirits known to man.


253 Chesterton Road CB4 1BG
Stir is a neighbourhood coffee shop, bakery and social hub for CB4. There are 100 seats inside the stunning interior and more outside. They have award-winning coffee and locally sourced food, including gluten free options. The ‘Back Room’ hosts activities including knitting groups, Pilates, yoga and toddler art.
