23 May Supper Club At Trinity Hall College
Note October 2017 – We don’t organise the Supper Club anymore. Please contact the colleges directly.
College food with a twist – Always dreamt of sipping champagne in one of the of the oldest colleges in the world? A place where famous inventors and world leaders used to dine? The exclusivity of this dining experience lies in its surrounding. A historic room at one of the Cambridge Colleges, elegantly set, candle-lit tables, enjoying wines from historic wine collections and sampling gourmet food in areas normally off limits to the public.
The historic colleges have a rich food history and an impressive collection of wine. They have some of the best chefs working for them, who on their turn compete every year in a Cambridge Culinary Competition in eight individual food classes. Last year’s winner was Clare College. The Cambridge Food Tour is very pleased to be able to offer you a fine dining experience at a secret location in a Cambridge College on the 25th of May. Due to its exclusivity, there are only limited seats available. Booking early is therefore necessary.
On our next Cambridge College Supper Club on the 22nd of June, we will be dining at a site, which was originally obtained from the purchase of a house from John de Crauden to house the monks during their study. Trinity Hall is one of the oldest Colleges of Cambridge University. It was founded in 1350 for the study of law. Today the beautiful riverside setting is home to a friendly community of undergraduate and graduate students studying a range of subjects.
Imagine making your way through the gardens of one of the most attractive Colleges in Cambridge to the historic dining room, the Chetwode Room. Nestled along the river and hidden between its larger neighbours Clare, Gonville and Caius, and Trinity Colleges, Trinity hall lies discretely beside the River Cam in the centre of Cambridge, insulated against the bustle of the town.
This stunning historic room is named after Dr John Chetwode, a Fellow of the College in the 18th century, who bequeathed the room’s fine marble fireplace, dark wood panelling and furnishings. You will be seated in leather high-backed dining chairs on a table with stunning silver tableware, a dining experience hard to beat in Cambridge.
The Supper Club at trinity hall college starts at 7.30pm with a glass of Prosecco and canapés followed by a 3-course fine dining experience.
Around 8 pm we will take you to a stunning private dining room where the table is set with stunning table silver. You can expect an evening sampling fine British food with a twist paired with fine wines from the historic wine cellars of the college.
