About The Missing Sock

Finders Place, Newmarket Road
Stow-Cum-Quy, Cambridge
Cambridgeshire, CB25 9AQ

A flexible relaxed ethical Cambridgeshire wedding venue offering diversity, commitment and passion to deliver a memorable experience.  Wedding venues don't come much more  alternative than The Missing Sock.  For originality, fun and a passion to make a difference to your day you need look no further. 
What we can offer at The Missing Sock.... 
You can choose to have your wedding ceremony with us, as we are fully licensed for registrar weddings, or just come to us for your after-party if you’re getting married elsewhere. We have a great outdoor area for summer ceremonies and for guests to wander and party afterwards. The Restaurant/Function room accommodates 70 bum placements, the adjacent connected coffee lounge a further 40 for formal dining. More if you are inviting sardines. For the more relaxed evening buffet and party our internal capacity is 150.  

We have a great choice of international dishes for the wedding menu which can also be customised to suit your tastes and theme, or have vegetarian, vegan, allergen-free options.  The origins of tMS are based on international cuisine of an interactive nature, we love world foods but have had some great traditional themes too.  The Wedding Breakfast will be designed and delivered to meet your preferences and budget. Welcome drinks, canapes and evening guest dining options are numerous with the garden fire-pit and outdoor pizza oven, and we can arrange alternative food stalls if you’d like to add to that festival feel. Our garden marquee creates a fantastic alternative party space for bands, or have a karaoke on the outdoor London bus bar, whilst your pizza's cooking.

The venue itself is a hidden gem, a maze of places to chill, chat or rave.  Easy access to city and main routes, plenty of secure parking.  The ethos of tMS is captured by the mural on the cocktail bar as you enter, echoed throughout the venue.  We have spaces for all ages; our Snuggles Wisdom room is a tranquil hole for elders to relax and chat.   For a family event the video room and an enclosed play area will keep the children occupied whilst the party goes on elsewhere.  Singing at its best and worst on the karaoke double decker bus, sharing a vapour shisha pipe in the hookha tent, jigging to bands or a silent disco on the dance floors, toasting marshmallows on the firepit or just chilling in many of the hideaway places.  Some great opportunities for wedding photos with a difference. Our entertainment options are many - just tell us what you want and we will do our best to deliver the day of your wedding dreams!

Although we are not a hotel, which helps our flexibility, we do have 3 ensuite garden rooms.  Also 2 shepherd huts and a camping and caravan facility are available for guests.

Next day farewell breakfasts always work well for both us and the guests to reflect on the wonders of the day before. 

Pop in and have a nose, chat with us without any commitment. Use us as a benchmark for that wedding with a difference!

• A flexible, relaxed and ethical wedding venue committed to diversity • A range of delicious and unusual food options • A range of technological and entertainment options available • Family friendly wedding venue welcoming children • We welcome gay weddings and partnerships

Inspirational Venue
Venue Service

By Mrs Lesley Thomas, on 03 Sep 2014

We held our reception at the sock in August 2014. Hugh and his staff went above and beyond to ensure our day was perfect. Beautiful food (BBQ buffet in the afternoon and pulled pork/pizza in the evening) was enjoyed by all. Hired the party zone and plenty of our guests enjoyed the Karaoke bus!! There is a real spirit about this venue which all our guests felt. Give it a go, you will nor regret it. Lesley and Charlotte

We held our wedding reception here 02/05/14, and right from booking we were made to feel special. Hugh and the whole team made our day a dream, very helpful, and accommodating. The food was out of this world we chose sharing platters and there was more than enough for all. We had two very fussy eaters who were aware of our food choices and the staff went out of their way to offer alternatives. Our aim was for everyone to have a fun time and all our guests have complimented our choice of venue as there is something for everyone whether you want to dance, sing along to the karaoke, sit round the fire pit toasting marshmallows, enjoy the many features of the garden, or take your shoes off and put your feet up, there is even a play area for the little ones.

quirky and attentive
Venue Service

By Sarah & Mike, on 02 Feb 2014

We held our wedding reception here in November 2013. They were so helpful and friendly and flexible with our planning. Guests have since said the food was great and the venue was great. It is a relaxed atmosphere with really friendly staff working hard to make sure everyone enjoys themselves. You get so much choice with what you want from the day - a pick n mix kind of deal. Our choices included use of the karaoke bus and toasting marshmallows on an open fire. We had platters for our day guests and pizza from the outdoor clay oven for the evening guests. We love the Missing Sock.

Great place for a wedding reception
Venue Service

By Nellie, on 30 Sep 2013

Just wanted to say big “thank you” to Hugh and his team for a wonderful wedding reception that we had for our daughter’s wedding in September 2013. The place is wonderful, with plenty to do for every taste. The staff are helpful and discreet, they did everything we asked them for and more! Everyone had a great time and it exceeded our expectations. The food was wonderful and the whole day just fantastic! We also stayed in the rooms after the wedding, and they were clean and comfortable, with everything we needed. I hope that the Missing Sock will prosper and entertain many more happy customers!

What a wonderful, chilled and relaxed day. We were so pleased to have chosen the Missing Sock as it so much represented our own life values and added much fun and inquisitrive chatter to our day. The venue is modestly alternative, as was the food. A more flexible team in Chris, Hugh and Adi we could not have had. Flexible to the end. Some of our friends camped over ad we had a great farewell brunch the next day. The food was again very gratifying. Wonderful experience and very affordable. Finding this venue was the relief and blessing we had searched after so many stuffy formal corporate style venues. Our parents was given use of the wisdom room and given their own entertainment, they had a great time, as did my nephews with the animals So much to say about these guys, hopefully neither of us will require their wedding services again but we will be back for our anniversary dinner for sure.
