History of 3 Bene't Street

1962

The Bath Hotel, W R Kinsey, manager

30/10/1973: Plans by a London catering company to convert the 17th century Bath Hotel in Bene’t St, Cambridge, into a steak bar rival to the Turks Head have been vetoed by Corpus Christi College who own the site. Dr Peter Lewis said, “We don’t want to change the atmosphere of the Bath Hotel and these plans would have done that too drastically”. The Bath Hotel is basically a 17th century building with extensive 18th century modifications. West End Catering, who put forward the proposal said, “The college’s grounds for refusal are absolutely unreasonable and invalid. The dons seemed to be examining our plans as a viable place for them to eat instead of examining them in terms of popular catering” (Cam.News)
