A Refectory Table is a highly elongated table used orininally for dining in monasteries in medieval times. In the Late Middle Ages the table gradually became a banqueting or feasting table in castles and other noble residences.

Refectory tables were used for dining in American Colonies during the 2nd half of the 17th century.

Today many modern versions of refectory tables are made to be used as dining tables. They are especially desirable for country style settings. They are also ideal in kitchens as work tables.
