Last Night's Trafalgar Dinner 21st October

HMS VICTORY was Admiral Lord Nelson's flagship during the Battle of Trafalgar, 1805. (From a Nicholas Pocock painting). 

Trafalgar Day is the celebration of the victory won by the Royal Navy, commanded by Vice-Admiral Horatio Nelson over the combined French and Spanish fleets at the Battle of Trafalgar on 21 October 1805. The formation of the Navy League in 1894 gave added impetus to the movement to recognise Nelson's legacy, and grand celebrations were held in Trafalgar Square on Trafalgar Day, 1896.[1] It was widely commemorated by parades, dinners and other events throughout much of the British Empire in the 19th century and early 20th century. It is still widely celebrated in navies of the Commonwealth of Nations.

Last Night's Formal Hall Sunday 17th October

Sunday's Formal Hall menu is by tradition, a roast dinner with a traditional hot sweet and an unadventurous starter. Past attempts to 'brighten-up' the dinner have met with disapproval :-(

Saturday's Formal Hall Dinner 16/10

Friday and Saturday were very busy days in the kitchen, with our chefs working flat out to deliver some wonderful meals. Both the William Pitt Seminar Dinner on Friday, and the Matthew Wren Society Lunch on Saturday required a great deal of time, planning and preparation. Neither were our wonderful front-of-house staff spared any rest, with both events requiring the best wine, China, silver and College cutlery.
