The most wonderful time of year is almost upon us – The Fellows House is throwing wide its doors and inviting you in to celebrate!
A sumptuous hotel positioned just a short stroll from the city centre, The Fellows House is an idyllic haven in which to savour the run up to Christmas. This year, as a nod to the city’s heritage, The Fellows House is inviting Cambridge locals and visitors to take part in some festive activities over the holiday period.
“Cambridge colleges organise Christmas events for their residents – students and academics with young families – and we are taking a leaf out of their ancient books with our events in The Sage,” says Giovanni Valentini, VP of operations.
From the end of November, there will be festive fare and fun galore at The Sage cafe and The Folio Bar & Kitchen – from gingerbread biscuit decorating to wreath-making workshops and even a Lights Switch On event on 25 November.
A delicious Christmas afternoon tea will also be available from 25 November to 23 December. Expect a truly scrumptious spread, including wild mushroom arancini, coronation turkey on onion bread, a selection of assorted scones, plus a mouth-watering selection of puddings. A full vegan menu is also available.
Discounts are on offer for early bird bookings on all festive menus. And enjoy special deals on accommodation over the Christmas period, allowing you to make the most of the hotel’s indoor pool, steam room and sauna – the perfect way to relax after hours of Christmas shopping.
All the Trimmings
Enjoy a luxury dining experience at The Folio with its sumptuous Christmas lunch and dinner menu. It features slow-cooked brisket with black truffle honey parsnips, fondant potatoes and red wine jus, or turkey paupiette with cranberry and chestnut stuffing – followed by heavenly desserts such as Christmas pudding with toffee brandy custard.
Feast Like a Fellow
Inspired by an ancient tradition at the University of Cambridge, where Fellows enjoy private dining in their own special rooms, the hotel’s elegant Hawking Suite is also available to hire for corporate and intimate family celebrations.
Ring in the New Year
Welcome 2023 at The Fellows House with a five-course meal and live music for a night to remember, complete with champagne at midnight. Book by 11 December and you’ll receive a 10% discount.
