Local Food and Drink

The Co-operative Food

120 Girton Rd, Girton, Cambridge CB3 0LW, UK – 01223 276258

A small and compact store that has most everyday foodstuffs and general supplies. Friendly and helpful staff. Not sure if a wheelchair user or mobility scooter could manoeuvre around the small areas within the aisles. I can only imagine that staff would step in to help.

It's good for a local village shop, but the selection of goods is a little odd. I've been in smaller shops that have a better selection. Still it does at least cover the basics which is the most important point for this shop.

Co-op Food - Histon Road

Histon Road, Cambridge CB4 3HL, UK – 01223 367927

Convenient. However, recently, the number of vegan choices have dropped (but not the prices unfortunately!). Staff seem nice. Checkout is a bit manic as mentioned before. Mostly I'm grateful to have it and I'm always a bit hopeful that they're a bit better towards their suppliers and I like that all their detergents and toiletries are not squirted into bunnies' eyes.

A bog standard co-op really, all you would expect from a co-op good for small convenience shops but nothing more. Its location means it attracts a big lunchtime croud so it would be nice to see more convenience food rather than a choice between sandwiches or a ready meal that takes 45 minutes in an oven to cook. It could also use some more reliable self scan machines as i can't remember the last time i saw all three of them fully functional.

Co-op Food - Station Road - Histon

Station Road, Histon, Cambridge CB24 9LQ, UK – 01223 232302

Fantastic local shop with friendly staff
