Our experienced team of chefs offer an extensive range of international cuisine, and are able to cater for all dietary requirements. They have the creative flair to deliver a variety of dining experiences in a range of locations including private dinners, barbeques, networking lunches, themed evenings or picnics as alternatives to the daily routine.

We can create dining options to suit your event’s needs; whether it be a buffet-style lunch in the Restaurant, an evening canapé reception with stunning views across Cambridge in our Tower Lounge Bar. We can even offer an intimate, fine dining dinner.

Our stunning Tower Lounge Bar is fully stocked with local ales, fine wines and spirits and is the perfect place to unwind or network with colleagues. It offers a spectacular panoramic view of the city of Cambridge and can be adapted for private functions or networking events.

Our events team can organise traditional dinners in the halls of any of the 31 Cambridge Colleges or take advantage of the array of restaurants within Cambridge.
