Banquet Inn now stock over 150 craft Gins to choose from and in 2017 we had over 50 craft beers so please let us know what you would like us to stock.
Local cider & local real ale always available.

Banquet Inn, have found that no party is the same, May Balls, Weddings, Birthdays, Festivals or Corporate events all required the same exceptional service but with a different choice of drinks. A general bar will have a choice of chilled draught Lager, a local bitter, a good selection of bottled beer such as Peroni and Corona, white, red and rose wine, along with spirits, mixers and soft drinks. Its your event and if you want your favourite beers we shall get them, if you want a rare scotch or a fine wine we shall try our utmost to stock them for you.

We use local suppliers where possible. All bars have, either on draught or bottled, the award winning Cromwell cider from Hemmingford Grey, local ales from Elgoods Cambridgshire, a 215 year old Georgian Brewery and wines from Cambridge wine merchants. Over the last few years we have also sold HeatherAle from Scotland and real ale from farms in Devon. We will try and source any ale in the British isles or find any beers or wine from around the world for your bar.
