We are proud of our catering team and the service they offer. From freshly made coffee delivered to your meeting room, the assisted service buffet selection available in our Buttery, to the fine dining menus devised by our Head Chef and presented and served with style, you can be assured of a traditional attention to detail.

Dine in our Medieval Hall, which seats 160; where breakfast, lunch and dinner are available buffet-style through the Buttery service area. Formal candlelit dinners are served at the table, offering guests the opportunity to experience the traditional atmosphere of a college dining hall.

Located in one of the oldest parts of Magdalen, the New Room can seat up to 44 for intimate private dinners. A collection of work by artists such as John Piper and David Hockney provide the back drop to the ante-room where pre-dinner drinks are held.

The Old Kitchen Bar offers a more informal venue for the service of food and drink, with the benefit of the riverside terrace where you can watch punting on the river Cherwell.

Outdoor receptions can be held on the Cloisters Lawn and New Buildings Lawn in fine weather.
