The Butterfield Café offers a range of drinks and snacks, including paninis and baguettes with a range of fillings and cakes. These can be purchased using your University Card or by cash.

Servery

The servery is accessed through A staircase and offers cafeteria-style self-service meals every day, for dining in the Great Hall. There will be a range of meals on offer, always with at least one vegetarian option. The salad bar is also available.
Meals should be purchased using your University Card (or cash, though it is best to have your card with you to prove you are a Downing member so you won’t be charged extra) and will be automatically charged to your next college bill. A typical meal costs around £4.00, depending on your selection.
