The Dining Hall is a wonderful venue in which to enjoy your breakfast. On the north wall of Hall hangs a full-length portrait of the College’s Founder, Queen Elizabeth I, attributed to Nicholas Hilliard or his school.

Other portraits to be found here include contemporary likenesses of Charles I and Charles II, as well as other benefactors, former Principals, alumni including T.E.

Smoking is not permitted within the room, but there are two designated smoking points on the site, one of which is sheltered.
