Catering (for catered rooms only)

Overview and meal times

Your accommodation fees include breakfast (brunch at weekends) and dinner 7 days a week. A vegetarian option is included in all meals, however, we regret that we are not able to cater for any other special dietary requirements. All meals are served in the dining hall, located on the lower ground floor. The dining hall is the social hub of the Hall. We hope that you will eat your meal in the dining hall and take the opportunity to meet friends and the staff. 

The accommodation package includes meals and it is not possible to remove meals from this package, therefore no deductions to the Fees can be made.
