Private Dining

Whether it’s a  wedding breakfast, Christmas dinner, working lunch or a BBQ, all our dining spaces offer a relaxing atmosphere in which to enjoy wonderful food created by our chef and catering team, and served by our experienced hospitality staff.

Our Dining Hall is perfectly situated within the College’s Balfour Building, originally created to house part of the Pitt-Rivers Collection. The building’s distinctive design, with high ceilings and wall of bi-fold glazed doors, leading on to a patio area, offers a large, bright, open space for entertaining your guests. There is also easy access to an internal circulation space.

The College Bar, which is adjacent to the Dining Hall, is the perfect place to serve canapés and enjoy your pre and post dinner drinks.
