Owner description: One of the colleges of Cambridge University that was built on the site of a 12th-century nunnery, and which today features spacious grounds and a pretty 16th-century cloister court.

The college with its courtyards, halls and gardens is amazing. Add a formal dinner with excellent food and great service, and there is nothing to complaint about. I'll definitely go again when a chance appears!

Grand dinner held here was disappointing although surroundings were as with all Cambridge colleges magnificent.
Starters good both vegetables and meat eaters.
Mains dreadful. Vege too busy and tasteless. Beef that really should have been tender took ages to saw and managed to quieter our fellow diners for a long spell as they excercised their jaws!
Average desert but odd combination of chocolate and mango.
Unhelpful verging on rude porter too so finding the location in snow and vice took ages.
Other colleges have done better in past.
Really are paying for the location here.

A pleasure to be able to walk around this old college. The buildings are from different periods and the new ones are blending in very nicely. The location next to Jesus green and Midsummer commons is nice.

My first visit was on a Thursday night for a formal dinner that I had to attend. Behind the garden walls you can find yourself wondering through a complete maze of passages between courtyards. Definitely this college has a certain enchanting something that makes you love it.
