Drinks reception

Drinks reception

Receptions can be held in our Garden Room or College Bar and in the summer months, in the Scholars’ Garden overlooking the River Cam.

As an elegant way to round off your conference or as a prelude to dinner, we can offer our mouth-watering menu of canapés.

Bar and Cellars

In a corner of Old Court beneath the College chapel, you will find the entrance to our 17th century bar, where before and after-dinner entertainment is held in vacations.

Guests are invited below ground to this hidden gem, featuring stone arches, subdued lighting and exposed brickwork, creating a unique and exciting atmosphere.

Scholars’ Garden

The beautiful riverside Scholars’ Garden overlooks the Cam where guests can watch punts gliding under the oldest bridge on the river.

We can even arrange chauffeured punts to collect guests from our private dock for a trip before dinner, or guests can relax and enjoy the view with a glass of Pimm's or Champagne.

Garden Room and Lerner Court

During term, receptions can be held in the Garden Room or the Elton-Bowring Room in The Gillespie Centre. During summer, receptions can be held outside in Lerner Court.

With the doors open maximum capacity is 300 guests. With them closed it is 150 guests.

What our customers say

The level of catering and the evening in the Small Hall was outstanding. The menu was inventive, suitably scaled and much appreciated by all delegates. The few individual allergy requests were well dealt with. The meal was very good value for money and generally of a significantly high standard. Kirchhain-Methody
