Our Chefs produce delicious and imaginative seasonal menus with an emphasis on fresh ingredients and sustainability; sourced locally whenever possible. Menus are personalised to the client’s preferences and with wines matched accordingly. Drink reception locations vary dependent on numbers, availability and season, but, when possible, take place in the Fellow’s Garden. The College Bar can also be used for drinks receptions and post-dinner, subject to availability.
“Please pass my gratitude to the Head Chef, for accommodating the last minute requests and for the delicious meal, the Deputy Governor said it was the best Lamb he ever had!”
Our 17th century gothic style dining Hall is undoubtedly amongst the most beautiful in Oxford. Surrounded by stained glass windows, portraits and a fine hammer beam ceiling, the Hall offers a unique dining experience. Smaller dining rooms like the 20th century Alington Room with its panelled walls offers you the intimate and traditional formal setting expected of an Oxford College.
Rooms for Hire
Built in 1656, the Hall offers iconic architecture and outstanding food. Dining in such an elegant and beautiful setting is an experience you’ll always remember.
Find out more about the Hall on our College Buildings page.
Available for hire mostly out of term.
