The Tocal Dining Room is available for meals to both residents of accommodation and groups using College facilities (meeting rooms and tours). As with many other College facilities use of the dining hall is coordinated around the students and so meal times are quite structured.
The dining room is able to cater for groups using meeting facilities and will set up for coffee/tea on arrival, deliver morning and afternoon teas, as well as lunches.
Meals taken in the dining hall follow the menu set for the students and will usually include a choice of two cooked dishes and dessert. Breakfast, lunch and dinner is available at set times through the day.
Times for meals delivered to a meeting room can vary from the dining room timetable and are generally either a sandwich lunch (including a fruit platter) or hot finger food (eg mini pizzas, mini quiche, spring rolls etc). There is a small surcharge for meals on weekends.
