  • The traditional and the new side can be separated by curtains for a more intimate dinner on the traditional side only
  • Both sides have long tables with wooden College chairs and  timber floors
  • Popular for formal dinners (plated or buffet)
  • The venue of the delicious daily College buffets for breakfast, lunch and dinner
  • Excellent space for morning and afternoon teas for conferences, with a quick and efficient turnaround for large numbers
  • Baby grand piano
  • The new side opens up to the lovely Williams Courtyard with lawn and outdoor seating, a catering operated BBQ, and beautiful jacaranda tree
