            Dining at Queens’ is a unique experience. A walk
            through Cloister Court, unchanged since Tudor times,
            into the picturesque Old Hall (1) is to participate in a
            five hundred year old tradition. The Old Hall, with its
            minstrels’ gallery, historic portraits and opulent
            decoration by William Morris is a truly splendid setting
            for your meal. With our other dining facilities, including
            the Old Kitchens (2) and Cripps Hall, we can
            accommodate up to 350 diners in pleasant surroundings.


            Food and fine wines are served to a standard that
            matches the surroundings, from a full wedding breakfast
            to the splendour of a formal banquet.


            Our proudly maintained tradition of providing excellent
            service with particular attention to every detail will be
