About this room

Designed by Sally O'Loughlin with a vintage chic feel, the Oyster Bar is situated on the ground floor.

The unique atmosphere may charm and bewitch you from the moment you step inside, with the pewter bar, striking overhead chandelier and deep comfy sofas and armchairs. The Mezzanine overhead features historic sepia photographs of former pupils of the Victorian school.

The Oyster Bar and Mezzanine are available for private hire for all types of celebrations and can be used in conjunction with the Library and Terrace to hold informal events of up to 200 people.
