CATERING 

 

FOOD

 

We can recommend caterers or you can choose your own. If you are choosing your own it is essential that you see a copy of their local authority star rating which grades their food hygiene and check that they are insured. We make a ten percent charge for the use of our facilities including our gas range and refrigeration.

 

We can accommodate up to 90 guests in the Venetian ballroom for a sit down meal. The marquee can seat 200. Usually a long top table is positioned to the side with the guests seated at round tables. Tables and chairs are included in the venue price. Your caterer will bring table cloths, cutlery and tableware. Glasses, water jugs etc are included in our wine prices.

 

Our wedding planners can advise on all the aspects of the catering for your day. You might want to consider a buffet either served or self-service. You do not have to have a sit down meal as a hog roast can be very economical. We have organised very smart fish and chip vans. Classic country weddings can be enhanced by quirky unmatched crockery and afternoon teas.

 

Instead of the familiar chocolate fountain we recommend a crepe station for your evening guests as it looks so inviting with all the ingredients laid out, cut fruit and chocolate.

 

Our planners really do go the extra mile for our couples — we recently sourced Welsh and Belgian newspapers to wrap the chips for a Welsh and Belgian couple.

 

DRINKS

 

We can provide both wines and champagnes. We are fully licensed and our staff will serve the drinks for the reception and the meal. Our prices are reasonable—as a rule of thumb they will be double the off-license cost. We can organise wine tastings and gladly provide bottles at cost for tasting.

 

If you want to bring your own wines we will charge a competitive corkage.

 

BAR

 

Most couples have a cash bar at their weddings. We can run any combination from an open bar to a token system or a bar tab settled in advance with drinks charged after that sum is spent. We have two premium lagers and ale on tap and at least six different bottled lagers. Real ale is becoming increasingly popular with young drinkers and we can obtain small casks to suite.

 

Our expert bar staff can design special cocktails for your wedding.

Anstey Hall was a lovely old property. The staff were excellent and you are made to feel very welcome making our stay comfortable, it felt like we were in someone's home. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the honesty bar is a nice touch. We would definitely stay again.
What a great place, with fantastic staff and of course a beautiful setting. It was so much like being at one's own country house. Well done, I will certainly stay there again.
Nice, comfortable bedrooms in a good location. Kind staff, stunning library with a picturesque garden view! It is a place of interest, which is historic Grade I building - the staff gave me a volume of information on the history of the manor. Overall, it was a very pleasant stay.
The atmosphere of Anstey Hall makes it really stand out; incredibly friendly, welcoming, cosmopolitan, and quirky. The eccentric, eclectic and amazing mix of furniture, decoration, art (and people) complements both the building as well as the atmosphere perfectly. It was the second time I stayed there, but I shall be very happy to go back again.
A fabulous place that is really special. It is not your usual bed and breakfast destination but a country house with an eclectic mix of décor and furniture. We booked what turned out to be a very comfortable room with four poster bed, everything you need and a lovely bathroom with roll top bath, shower etc. There was a lovely help yourself breakfast which had a very extensive selection to choose from.
Wonderfully different. Great room and en suite was fantastic. Friendly staff and the location next to the Cambridge park and ride, as well as a couple of nice pubs and still in the countryside ticked all the boxes.
Superb B&B in a beautiful setting. The staff were really friendly and helpful. We were in room 5, facing a field full of rabbits and could have watched them all day. Breakfast was excellent and plentiful, the honesty bar and billiard table were nice facilities. We thought this was great value for money and will return next year.
The house is beautiful and you are able to walk around and let it feel like your own home. The girl that checked us in was lovely, really friendly and showed us around. I love the feel of the history of the house and the honesty bar is great!
The house was very quirky with lots of antiques and curios to look at, being bike owners we loved the old bike in the breakfast room !! The location was very quiet as was the house and it felt like we were just guests in the owners home rather than a hotel. Please don't expect a `waited on experience ` it is relaxed and non pretentious.
Most friendly, Fantastic views of the gardens, so helpful. Room was amazing. Great breakfast. Can't wait to go back, proves you don't have to go far to have a feeling of being a million miles away.
Loved the building inside and out, and unexpected bonus of an upgrade which was lovely. Loved watching the wildlife from balcony in the evening & early morning, Staff very friendly & helpful. Great breakfast. Highly recommend this place.
This did not feel like staying in a hotel but as a guest in a beautiful stately home. On arrival I thought I had got it wrong as I walked into this beautiful charming home. The owner and his family were quite prominent and very relaxed making us feel relaxed also. Just a short drive from the centre of Cambridge, would most definitely stay here again.
Enjoyed our conversations with the charming owner and daughter; and we did have a very nice room. There were also so many interesting oddities among the hall's furnishings to hold one's attention.
Breakfast was amazing, the bath was really cool and vintage, it was a peaceful area, the staff were helpful and friendly, lovely pub with nice food just around the corner, room was amazing, we really had an incredible time. I am from Denmark and wanted to have a cozy English experience in a Victorian style castle, and that's what I got.
