Formal and informal meals are taken in the medieval Hall, which is located on the first floor above the Cloisters. There is a lift (elevator) available for any with special access needs. The Hall has refectory style tables with chairs and some benches, seating up to 160 including 25 at the High Table.
For regular daily meals, guests help themselves from the assisted service Buttery, and then carry their tray through to the Hall. This area of College is one of the most historic, and the nature of the space available to provide a free-flow assisted service facility is therefore limited. It is part of the tradition of taking meals in a College setting that guests spend some time queuing, but we are confident that the time spent chatting to colleagues will not be wasted!
We welcome the opportunity to share our tradition of formal dining. Menus for three or four-course served dinners are devised in discussion with the client and wines are then offered from our College cellar.
