Good food, good prices

Rave Review on 'Observing Oxford'
Corpus received the following write up from an Oxford student, who attends to college Formal Halls in order to review them for 'Observing Oxford'.
Food: 9/10 - Oh my GOSH - the food was amazing! And it turns out I'm not the only one who thinks that - lots of you got in touch to say how much you'd enjoyed the food at Corpus Christi when you visited! So HUGE shoutout to the chefs for an absolutely delicious meal - I genuinely enjoyed every element of every dish.
Menu: 9/10 - We started the night with prawns and then had chicken, although I'm not 'exactly' sure what the main was because I couldn't spot a menu. Anyway whatever it was, me calling it 'chicken' doesn't do it justice. Unsurprisingly, given my sweet tooth, dessert was the highlight! And my gosh what a pudding it was! It was a chocolate-salted caramel pot and I could eat it everyday for the rest of my life!
Hall: 8/10 - The Corpus Christi hall is truly, truly beautiful.
Thank you so much to the Corpus Christi team for making it such a lovely evening.
