Man and woman talking at Formal Hall

Food

Sharing meals together is an important part of collegiate life. It provides the opportunity to catch up with friends and meet College members in other fields of study. Head Chef Sam Frost and his team provide delicious food and we encourage all College members to join us for breakfast, lunch, dinner – and, of course, Formal Hall.
