Since 1441 King's has set the standard in scholarly excellence. With the same dedication to excellence, King's College Conference & Dining has a justified reputation for exceptional food and wine in an exquisite historical setting.
King's has its own wine steward who travels to wine tastings far and wide and fills the college's cellar with some of the best wines and ports from across the globe. The Fellows' cellar contains some of the finest wines in the world, bought on release and aged in the temperature-controlled cellars under King's.
Unlike most Cambridge colleges, at King's there is no distinction between the Fellows' cellar and the wines made available to outside guests. Great care in the selection of all wines, and frequent tastings to assess maturity and the condition of the wine, help to create the best run and most eclectic cellar in Cambridge.
The charming and traditional Saltmarsh Rooms are ideal for more select occasions. The three interconnecting rooms are fine examples of Georgian grace and proportions with ceiling-high sash windows giving views of the Chapel, Front Lawn and Webb's Court. The Saltmarsh Study and Dining Room can be hired individually or all three rooms can be hired as a suite.
The Hall was designed from 1824-1828 in a neo-Gothic fashion, and it offers a magnificent setting for the most prominent of events. Beneath an imposing ceiling 13.6 metres high, tables glow under gold candelabra and glasses glitter among row upon row of immaculately placed tables settings.
For smaller intimate drinks and canapé receptions the Saltmarsh rooms overlooking the Chapel, Front Court and Webb's Court, and the Beves Room overlooking Webb's court, the Provost's Lodge and the Library are perfect. Located in the private part of the College, they provide a secluded setting for gatherings of up to 80 guests. For larger summer receptions, the Back Lawn provides the ultimate location. Where else could you entertain guests with a fifteenth-century Chapel as a back drop?
