In First Court, what we call the Buttery (an old word) is a café during the day and a bar in the evening, so it's one of the main social areas in College and a source of snacks outside of Upper Hall meal times. The café is a subsidised Costa Coffee, which is cheaper than the equivalent coffee shops in town, and there are sofas, newspapers and a TV. Students are encouraged to bring a coffee cup if getting a hot drink to take away to avoid using disposable ones. The bar serves a wide range of drinks in the evenings including plenty of non-alcholic options.
