The hall itself was very nice, the setting is a nice environment to have a formal dinner, its a shame the food was so underwhelming. For anyone who wants to go to a formal dinner whilst in Cambridge, there are much better college's elsewhere. The...More

We went for a visit here because one of our party knew a past all student. We were amazed by the 400 year old Mulberry tree which still had mulberries on it. We also visited the old court. Nice place to visit. Very peaceful.
