In the context of the cathedrals we have been to over the last two weeks it is not spectacular but does have the enormous quad and great hall going for it. A must see for Harry Potter fans.

This is a massive and beautiful building. Ticket price is appropriate for the nature and length of the visit. The architecture is amazing and well kept. You can visit the main hall, the quads and cathedral as well as the picture gallery. Definitely recommended.

As far as I know, only members of the college can eat in the hall. It is not open to visitors for meals; only for touring when it is not being used for member meals.

No, unless you want to have dinner in the great hall which is possible sometimes, rather than just walk around in it.
