Food and Drink

From Michaelmas Term 2023, the Reuben Dining Hall will be open for self-service breakfast and lunches for most of the year (please see below for fixed closure dates). Prices are the same for all; student, Fellow, staff or non-member.

Please note we can only take contactless payments.

Weekly dinners will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays during term time, for those that book onto the relevant events.

Students will also be able to access Linacre dining facilities (except for Formal Hall events) for MT 2023 only, with charges being made to their Reuben account. Please check Linacre's website for their provision; noting that this may be subject to change, and that Reuben will not always be made aware.
