The Old Hall, Queens' College, Cambridge
The Old Hall at Queens' College is a serious contender for the title
of the most impressive dining hall in Cambridge. It is the original hall that
has been used by Fellows and students for over 500 years. It is part of Queens'
Old Court which reflects the plan of manor court houses of the 15th century.
The interior of the Old Hall is richly decorated and above the Tudor fireplace
are tiles attributed to William Morris and his associates. The Hall seats up to 114
people for banquets.
Partners / friends:
Partners and/or friends are very welcome.
The menu is fixed, but there are non-vegetarian and vegetarian (v) options for the starter and the

Enter Queens' College from Silver Street, on the west side of Silver Street Bridge, to get a
chance to walk across the famous Mathematical Bridge at Queens', and across the Cloister Court.
The Old Hall is on the opposite side of the Cloister Court.
Queens' Cloister Court is a superb example of Tudor architecture, the cloisters supporting
a spectacular wooden-beamed President's Lodge which is the oldest building on the river
at Cambridge (ca. 1460).
