The Grafton Snug (our second bar in Cambridge) has developed its own unique personality over its time as a Snug, and is now a student and shopper-friendly bar on East Road in Cambridge close to the Grafton Centre, Primark and Anglia Ruskin University (see below for map). The bar offers a group-friendly, comfortable environment with friendly staff who know how to look after their guests. Whether you are escaping from work, avoiding the hustle and bustle of the busy shops or just need a break from Uni, our Grafton bar is the place for you. Students can enjoy 25% off full menu food items with our Cambridge student discount. If you just fancy making the most of your lunch break then why not pop down for our fantastic £5.95 Lunch? It's available 10 am to 5pm from Monday to Friday, and we guarantee it's better than a sandwich. Lunch is made even more relaxing when the sun is out, giving you the chance to enjoy our wonderful secluded sun garden. We also offer the perfect chance to unwind with our 2-4-1 Happy Hours on your favourite cocktails from 3pm until 9pm every day!
