The Refectory, which at one time would have fed all the boys and men who lived at the College, now houses Ushaw’s tearoom. The hall houses some of the most stunning architecture in the North-East, with beautiful tiles and Victorian hand-crafted tables.  Although the technology has changed through the years, Divines Tearoom in the Refectory, offers a variety of the most sumptuous and delightful meals.

The tearoom is open from 11am to 3pm, Monday to Saturday.  It offers a variety of lunches, both hot and cold, as well as tea and coffee, with a selection of soft drinks and ice-creams also available.

I greatly enjoyed the panels I saw at @ResearchDurham conf the past two days. @ElizabethCBiggs discussed an interesting copy of the Malleus Maleficarum held at Durham, while @EilishGregory revealed the extent of letters/material held at Ushaw concerning 18thC recusancy in Britain

Had a fantastic time at @ResearchDurham conference in Durham. Was great to see familiar faces and meet new ones and to hear a vast array of papers across a long time period. I will probably try and sum up a few papers I heard tomorrow. Until then: https://t.co/xcdF6Debtu ResearchDurham photo

On the train home after the fantastic #DurhamRRL conference with lots to think about; thanks to @ResearchDurham, @IMEMSDurham and all the presenters!
