The Old Bicycle Shop


A Cambridge Institution closed its doors. Claimed to be the oldest bicycle shop, not just in Cambridge, but in the whole of England. Rumour has it that Charles Darwin, famed for his “Theory of Evolution”, bought a bike from this shop. And now this old bicycle shop has a new lease of life.

They bring you fresh, locally sourced food with plenty of options for the vegetarian and vegan among you. Open all day for brunch, lunch and dinner, or just drinks, they have you covered whether you have half a day to spare or just an hour lunch break.

Grab a coffee and brunch to go, or sit in and people watch. Get your friends together and enjoy the sheltered sun in our courtyard. Use one of their private spaces for a business meeting or special occasion.
