The Rupert Brooke, Grantchester

Intimate Private Dinners, Meetings, Weddings and Large Celebrations
Historic Grantchester On The Edge of Cambridge
Roof Terrace
Seasonal Menus Sourced From Trusted Local Producers
A short Two Miles From The Cambridge City Centre

Introduction

The Rupert Brooke is in the village of Grantchester which lies a short two miles from the Cambridge city centre on the banks of the River Cam. Along with being well-known for having the highest concentration of Nobel Prize winners, the village has been the subject of a Tom Sharpe novel, a song by Pink Floyd and features as the current setting for ITV drama, The Grantchester Mysteries. The much-celebrated war poet Rupert Brooke lived at The Old Vicarage (immortalised by the poem), which is now home to Lord Jeffrey and Dame Mary Archer.

Formerly owned by Enterprise Inns, The Chestnut Group acquired The Rupert Brooke in March 2014 – the second acquisition in their portfolio. The pub re-opened in November 2014, following an extensive renovation which included creating an open space kitchen, a roof terrace overlooking the thatched cottages on the High Street and a large multi-purpose function room. The Rupert Brooke can accommodate almost any configuration from an intimate private dinner or meeting to weddings and large celebrations. The venue seats up to 40 guests and up to 70 guests standing buffet style.

Fancy an outside summer party? Check out the terrace, ideal for drinks and canapés parties for up to 50 guests.

Catering

The Rupert Brooke is open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. Many of the ingredients on the carefully crafted seasonal menu are sourced from trusted local producers and inspired by British brasserie-style food/

Offering a range of lighter bites and drinks served throughout the day. The Rupert Brooke specialise in an extensive range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks – ranging from locally distilled gins to Kenyan coffee.
