Miss Pears almshouses revived

The main wine bar area and inset the Salon on the first floor, which is available for use by private or business groups

Local businessman, Peter Boizot, is responsible for the transformation of former almshouses in Cumbergate, to a wine bar and cafe.

City draper, James Pears, endowed the almshouses in the name of his daughter, hence the name. Most of the present listed buildings date from 1835, but there have been almshouses on the site since the 17th century.

Miss Pears wine bar offers morning coffee and afternoon tea along with its extensive list of around 100 wines and 32 champagnes. The tranquil surroundings offer an ideal respite for tired shoppers, being located just off Cathedral Square.

Their motto is "Good wine needs no bush", taken from the Epilogue of Shakespeare's 'As You Like It.' Meaning that a good wine will sell itself and needs no other advertising.

Recently, Miss Pears opened up their Salon area on the first floor to local business people for a wine tasting, which was organised in partnership with Edward Sheldon, Fine Wine Merchants. Guests were able to sample, three white wines, three red wines and a champagne, all available from the wine bar's list.

The salon area is ideal for private gatherings, for business or pleasure. There is no room hire charge, only a per head charge for refreshments. For more information, visit Miss Pears or contact the manager, details below.
