The Officers’ Mess

Original & new

Here our office facilities are created out of spaces that were once used for the day-to-day running of the Officers’ Mess, now a Grade II listed building, and part of the historic Duxford Airfield in South Cambridgeshire.

Award winning

We have preserved and restored many of the historic features so you could be working in the officers’ quarters, or The Stores, allowing you to indulge in some nostalgia while enjoying the benefits of the very latest office fittings.

The Heart provides an exceptional public space, an enclosed courtyard with cafe and relaxed seating. True to its name it forms the central hub of the building that will impress your guests (and you too).

The Officers’ Mess offers all the facilities that come as standard at a Mantle Business Centre: serviced offices, co-working, dedicated desks, virtual offices and meeting rooms, equipped with the latest technology and 24/7 access.

Enjoy the perfect balance of being out of town but within a short 26-minute drive of Cambridge city centre (Junction 10 of the M11 is just a minute's drive from the centre). You’ll find the nearest mainline station just two miles away, with fast trains to Cambridge or London Liverpool Street.

The Officers Mess offers a superb local working environment with good facilities and a lot of character. Loved the reception break out zone for meetings and coffee breaks.

Kerstin Rivett, Fruition London

Thank you for your amazing support ahead of and during yesterday's event. we received numerous compliments on the venue, catering and staff at the location from both stakeholders and sponsors and so, whilst I am not at all surprised, I wanted to let you know. on a personal note, I know you both went above and beyond for us (again) and so genuinely thank you for being part of what was a big day in the development of our company. I continue to be so glad we chose this venue as the location to establish and grow our business

Neil Beet, Blue Lights Digital Ltd

The professionalism of your Client Services Team contributed significantly to our success when establishing our new business. 100% of our clients rated your reception desk and meeting venue at The Officers’ Mess Business Centre as being excellent.

Fiona Spinks, Spinks Notary

We have used Mantle for both virtual and office services and our experience over the years has been exceptional. The team are friendly, positive and highly capable. No request is too small or big and everything is arranged efficiently and promptly.

The most impressive aspect to me, is that the level of exceptional service is provided by both the permanent and temporary staff. With temporary staff you tend to forgive them if they don’t know how to do something or don’t welcome you in the same way as the permanent staff. However, at Mantle, you wouldn’t be able to discern the permanent from the temporary, which is no mean feat.

I have no hesitation in recommending the Mantle Group for office space and services.
