The Dining Room

The Ashmolean Dining Room can be privately hired outside of museum public opening hours and can accommodate up to 100 for a drinks reception, 70 for a seated dinner and 80 for an informal buffet. If hiring privately for a Friday or Saturday evening, please be advised that catering is mandatory.

The spacious rooftop terrace offers views across Oxford and the perfect opportunity to enjoy a pre-dinner drink outside on a summer's evening. The existing furniture can be rearranged to suit different styles of event, and it is also possible to include a dance floor. This is a popular choice when looking for a venue with a less formal style than the galleries.
