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, part of the historic Duxford Airfield in South Cambridgeshire.

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 for the past while enjoying the benefits of the very latest office fittings. Meanwhile The Card Room and The Billiard Room – two stunning meeting rooms - will provide an incentive to host a meeting or event. It also provides exceptional public space with The Heart, an enclosed courtyard with cafe and relaxed seating, forming the central hub of the building that will impress your guests (and you too).

Enjoy the perfect balance of being out of town but only a 15 minute drive to Cambridge city centre (junction 10 of the M11 is just a minute's drive from the centre). You are also only two miles from the nearest mainline train station, with fast trains taking you either to Cambridge or London Liverpool Street.

You get all the facilities that come as standard at a Mantle Business Centre: serviced offices, flexi offices, virtual offices and meeting rooms, equipped with the latest technology and 24/7 security.

The Officers' Mess is a great space for any business, the building is thoughtfully renovated and has all the facilities you would require. The Heart is a great informal space, good for client meetings over a coffee providing something unique amongst business centres – a memorable first impression. The staff have been tremendous, polite, attentive and always with a smile. I would happily recommend The Officers' Mess to anyone looking for a great service, up-to-date facilities and all within a dynamic building with real soul.

I wanted to email you directly because of the outstanding assistance both Helen and Holly gave us yesterday and today (not that they don’t always) but both went over and beyond in order to assist us. .... They are both an absolute credit to your company and it is a joy to work alongside such professionals.

What a difference it has made to our business having such great service and facilities from the team at the Officers’ Mess. Our clients have told us how pleasant they find their exchanges with reception and how helpful everyone is. Thank you!

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 so glad we chose this venue as the location to establish and grow our business.
