Dine in style at Worcester College, where our talented chefs, heritage buildings and state-of-the-art kitchens come together to offer meals to remember.

We put food and dining at the heart of our event planning and will help you to craft a bespoke offering which suits your requirements. At Worcester you can expect professional service and delicious food, whether its informal coffee and pastries, an outdoor drinks reception, or a banquet fit for kings in our eighteenth-century Dining Hall.

Draw on the expertise of our Head Chef and his dedicated team to create the perfect menu. We can offer light refreshments, lunches, buffets, drinks receptions and exceptional private dining to suit any event. What makes the difference – and has built our reputation – is our enthusiasm for tailoring menus and service to each event, ensuring that you and your guests feel special.

It was a true pleasure to work with the kitchen team at Worcester who show such devotion and love for their job and the food.

Dine in style

The kitchens and Dining Hall have been the focus of recent investment in College. Thanks to the generosity of the Headley Trust and the Linbury Trust, our chefs benefit from top-of-the-range equipment in our spacious kitchens and diners can enjoy the splendour of the restored Dining Hall. Opened in 1784 with an interior design by James Wyatt, the Hall has been feeding our students and entertaining guests for over 240 years. It was restored to its present condition using documents from the College Archives in 2018 and today can accommodate 120 diners.
