A long narrow dining table is known as a Refectory Table.

Traditionally these are made of hardwood but the term still applies to modern tables like your picture.

The term comes from the Refectory in a monastery where monks would sit on benches along the long side of the table to eat. Such tables are still in use in school dining rooms.


I call just table. I think Bar should be higher than that and can sit just one side.
