Dining Hall

College Dining Hall set up for a wedding with flowers

Trinity Hall’s medieval Dining Hall offers an exceptional setting for large dinners for up to 134 guests (with the option of seating an additional 16 guests on the Minstrels’ Gallery overlooking the ground floor).  This unique space is also a popular choice for a wide range of events including drinks receptions, networking events, awards ceremonies and wedding breakfasts for up to 150 guests.

Dating back to 1350 and updated in the Georgian period, the Dining Hall enjoys a beautiful timber framed high-vaulted ceiling and original medieval features including stained glass crests and a Minstrels’ Gallery. 

As one of the oldest of the Cambridge Colleges, Trinity Hall is steeped in the traditions of Cambridge College dining.  Our Dining Hall remains at the heart of day-to-day college life, where students and Fellows meet and dine, as well as serving as an impressive entertaining space for clients and guests of the college.

Additional information:

  • The Dining Hall also includes an integrated PA system and hearing loop, underfloor heating and an award-winning heritage lighting scheme.
  • In addition to ornate plasterwork, the walls of the dining hall are lined with an impressive portrait collection whose subjects include former Masters of Trinity Hall and benefactors of the College.  The collection includes a portrait of the first two female Fellows at Trinity Hall – Dr Kareen Thorne and Dr Sandra Raban.
  • The most recent addition to the Dining Hall is a magnificent tapestry created by sculptor and installation artist Cornelia Parker OBE which depicts a selection of the College’s most significant silver pieces. The tapestry follows the tradition of having an arras hung in the Dining Hall. The silver threads of the tapestry even incorporate a piece of College silver.
