    what a conference hall, canteen area is called in old days

    I am writing a short fiction of old age and need suitable words for the following stuff - archaic. These words would be used heavily through out and hence nice to have multiple synonyms to use.

    Meeting hall - where masters and students gather for an announcement or to distribute prizes

    canteen service area - something like the space in a self serviced garden restaurant, between the kitchen and the stalls, where service guys/girls roam to refill the dishes

    canteen space - the place in such restaurant people consume food. there would be tables, chairs

    Thanks
    Kris

    You could also use simply hall.

    Is it for the meeting hall or for the canteen service area or for both of them?
