Cambridge is bursting with places to eat, bars, clubs and much else besides, all perfect for some bonding and weekend fun. Here are some of the best activities, bars and restaurants Cambridge has to offer.


Discover Cambridge by enjoying a trip on the River Cam. Why not upgrade your tour to a Champagne or Gin Punting Experience with Rutherford’s Punting. Their chauffeurs will guide you along the river as you discover the city and learn about its history and secrets. Sit back and enjoy the views with a glass of Champaign or Gin in your hand.


Afternoon Tea

Take a break from exploring and shopping, enjoy a relaxing Afternoon Tea at Clayton Hotel Cambridge. Indulge in the quintessentially English tradition and dig into a selection of savory finger sandwiches and sweet pastries, along with a range of teas and coffee. For that extra special occasion, why not add a glass of bubbly! Head into The Grill Bar and Restaurant after to enjoy a drink from our extensive menu including classic cocktails, craft beers and fine wines.


If the weather is good, Revolution is a perfect spot to enjoy a drink in the sunny afternoon. With 7 bars spread out over 5 floors and a lovely rooftop terrace, Revolution is a fun and vibrant bar and restaurant. From their great selection of cocktails to their famous Rockstar Mar-Tree-Ni, you are sure to find your perfect drink.

Hidden Rooms

Tucked away down Jesus Lane, Hidden Rooms lives up to its name and is an awesome, secluded cocktail bar.

Hidden Rooms is the ideal spot for a few warm-up drinks before heading to dinner. It has a nice, laid-back atmosphere and does some of the very best cocktails in the city. Come for the vibes, stay for the drinks.


Located on Station Road, Smokeworks is a great place to indulge in some amazing food. Based on the site of a derelict pub, Smokeworks has quickly become a city favourite. Staying at Clayton Hotel Cambridge, you’ll be perfectly situated to pay a visit. The food is all about meaty, smoky treats from mains and salads to ‘Powerhouse Plates’ you may struggle to clear.

Vinyl Cambridge

Located only a ten-minute taxi journey from the hotel, Vinyl retro nightclub and late bar is perfect for dancing the night away with your friends to cheesy hit songs from the 80s, 90s and 00s. The illuminated dance floor and glitter balls are sure to get you in the party mood.
