Fabulous event dining for up to 380 guests with gala banquet meals a speciality

Using the freshest local ingredients, our dedicated and experienced team of in-house chefs provide events with the best of contemporary cuisine whilst at the same time celebrating the value of tradition.They will use their expertise to create a variety of menus for the meals during your visit and you will enjoy food of the highest quality served in our magnificent, Arne Jacobsen-designed dining hall – a stunning, Grade 1 listed example of Modernist architecture.


Good food must be complemented by great service and our friendly, courteous staff will ensure that your meals are served on time and your needs are met, allowing you to relax and enjoy our hospitality.


You may share the hall with other guests during standard meals, but your event will always have its own designated table(s). If you decide to host a gala banquet dinner with us, you will then have exclusive use of the dining hall.


With one of the largest of all of the University dining halls, St Catherine’s experienced teams are adept at catering to the highest standard for both large and small groups of guests. Our banquet packages offer exclusive formal dining with inclusive drinks for those special, gala meals which can often form one of the real highlights of residential conferences.
