bookings & events
With it’s unique history and unrivalled location amongst the colleges, Fitzbillies is a quintessentially Cambridge choice for any event. We have two branches, one at each end of the historic town centre:
The original, on Trumpington St, a few minutes walk from King’s College Chapel and the Fitzwilliam Museum, can accommodate up to 70 for dinner and 100 for drinks & canapés. During the day we serve our Traditional Afternoon Tea for groups of up to 40 and lunch or brunch menus for groups of various sizes.
At our second branch in Bridge St, just a stone's-throw from the river and the delights of punting, we can offer private Afternoon Tea parties for groups of up to 24 and early evening drinks events for up to 50.
Please scroll down for more details on afternoon tea, evening and daytime events.
After the Chelsea Bun, we’re most famous for our Traditional Afternoon Tea. Served everyday at Trumpington St, from midday, it is an English classic. Everything is made fresh, in the bakery behind our Trumpington Street shop. It includes a selection of finger sandwiches on white and brown bread, a homemade scone with raspberry jam and clotted cream, a selection of mini-cakes from the bakery, and of course a pot of tea of your choice (or coffee) at £19.00 per person. Our Celebration Afternoon Tea includes a glass of champagne, at £26.00 per person.
If you would like a table for 1-5 people for Afternoon Tea please just come along on the day and you will be seated at the next available table. Our no-bookings policy means that we are able to seat everyone either immediately, or after a short wait at the very busiest times.
If you are a party of 6 or more please have a look below for more details on booking
Evening Events & Parties
Fitzbillies is a unique venue for private dinners and drinks parties. With it’s beautiful Art Nouveau shop front, 98 year history, and unrivalled location in the heart of the colleges, it is quintessentially Cambridge. Our Trumpington St café is available for evening events from 7pm.
We can seat up to 70 for a private dinner, with menus from £30 to £50 per head or accommodate 100 for drinks and canapés. We are popular for informal weddings, birthday and anniversary dinners, tour group dinners, company and recruitment events.
Please get in touch below for menus, booking details and to discuss your event.
Fitzbillies is ideal for early breakfast meetings, a quick lunch break from conferences, meetings or tours of the city, celebration lunches and, of course, afternoon tea.
On weekdays and at non-peak times we may be able to offer you all or part of the café for your group or event. Unfortunately at weekends it is rarely practical to hold daytime events or take large bookings.
