Our stylish and comfortable Scholars Lounge Bar is a spacious place to meet friends, family or work colleagues. Here you can read a paper over morning coffee, grab a lunchtime snack or linger longer over a more filling meal and dessert. If you fancy something a little stronger than tea or coffee, we have a fantastic selection of prosecco and champagne by the glass or bottle, as well as wines from around the world, from a fruity Chilean merlot to an aromatic New Zealand sauvignon blanc.
