About us

King Street Cellar is a unique independent wine merchants in the centre of Cambridge. Our mission is to make fine wine accessible to everyone, townie and gownie alike. Grounded in community, King Street Cellar seeks to bring wine enthusiasts together in an inclusive space where wines can be shared, enjoyed and explored. Whether popping in for an old favourite, to discover something new, complex and unusual or if it’s your first time in a wine merchant’s, we delight in helping customers find exactly the right match for them.

The shop is founded and run by Cambridge-born-and-raised Ben Thurbon, whose enthusiasm for wine began at much too young an age (don’t tell his mum!). Though his palate has refined over time from Echo Falls drunk through a straw on Jesus Green, his joy of sharing and discussing wine has never changed. Ben takes great pride in getting to know each and every one of his customers personally and believes that good quality wine should be available to everyone, regardless of budget or background. The hand-picked and carefully selected stock reflects the diversity of customers he serves.

King Street Cellar is committed to being environmentally responsible and partners proudly with sustainably minded wine suppliers. In store and online you will find a diverse, quality-focussed selection of fine wines, craft beer and specialist spirits from suppliers who share our eco-friendly philosophy. Come in and chat to us about eco-friendly, organic and biodynamic wines and how you can do two of our favourite things at once: save the planet and be merry!
