Food & drink


Breakfast, lunch and dinner is served in the cafeteria daily in term times. Details of opening times and menus can be found on the college intranet site (see the Quick Links sidebar)

Formal Hall

A chance to make the most of your gown and dine in style, Formal Hall is a three course meal served every Thursday and Sunday during full-term. Menus can be found on the hall booking system (again, see the sidebar). Members of the college must wear gowns to Formal Hall.

All wine consumed must be purchased from the college bar.



The most superlative of all college dining is the fortnightly superhall. Usually held on alternate weekends to VIVA, superhall takes place on a Friday evening. The menu is themed, and ranges from the classics of Italian and French, to the more exotic and unusual tastes of the Orient and beyond. Places can be booked on the hall booking system.

Gowns are not worn to superhall, although a dress code of no trainers or jeans is imposed.

All wine consumed must be purchased from the college bar.

College Bar – Aula Bar

The college bar is open daily from 6pm till 11.30pm (11pm on Sundays), serving a wide range of beverages. The college bar is a great place to meet people, and also to grab a bottle of wine for formal.

The bar is located under North Court.


New this year, the bar will also be open during the day serving coffee, hot drinks, nibbles, sandwiches, toasties etc.

Sat & Sun: open from midday

Mon – Fri: open from 9.00am

Useful Catering-based Links

  • Here is the catering part of the intranet. Using the bar on the left you can find things like opening times for hall and booking times for hall and superhall.
  • There is an online feedback form, which you can also get to by clicking the Kitchen Comments link over on the Quick Links bar on the right. If you have strong feelings about hot desserts/bangers and mash/ravioli (as replies we got a while back said you are) then please tell them here. Please also tell them if you had a particularly cracking time at (formal/super/normal) hall because the food was just bloody great.
  • You can check your bill here in the hall booking system. The link is called “EPOS”, which stands for “Electronic Point Of Sale” and is very badly named. On the plus side, it works fantastically.
