Food & drink


Lunch and dinner is served in the cafeteria daily in term times, with the option of breakfast too during Easter term (exam fuel 😤). There is also brunch on Sundays which I wouldn’t miss out on, but it can get quite full! Details of opening times and menus can be found on the college intranet site (see the Quick Links sidebar). The food is good with many options and quite cheap too!

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) and you can bring an unopened bottle of wine. Members of the college must wear gowns to Formal Hall. The dress-code is not as strict as you might fear, but they are called formals for a reason!

There are special formals for matriculation in first year, halfway hall, and graduation, with multiple glasses of wine served in each.



Superhalls are organised in part with the JCR ents team. The menu is themed and the rules are relaxed. Superhalls can be booked through the same system as formals.

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

The wine policy for superhalls is the same as for formal hall.

The Aula – College Bar + Café

While functioning as a normal bar in the evenings, serving various beverages and wine for formals, it is also has a cafe type vibe during the day. It serves coffee, hot drinks, nibbles, sandwiches, snacks etc for a quick bite if you’re too lazy to walk to Sainsbury’s. The fresh smoothies are a particular favourite of mine, do give them a go. You can pay via your CamCard or with cash.

The bar is located under North Court, with entrances from both North Court as well as through the JCR (perfect to grab a drink and play pool!). Additionally, the Aula is a room located next to the bar and is a fab study space during the day, and also where ents happen at night! 

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.
  • 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.
