Lunch is an important time of the day for students. We work with students to offer a varied menu.
We produce a daily choice of traditional, international and vegetarian dishes - accompanied by salad or fresh vegetables.
The three week menu offers students simple fresh food that they want to eat.
In addition, students have the choice of:
- an Indian or Chinese choice of dish
- made to order sub style sandwiches and salads
- hot pasta pots served with a choice of sauces
- crispy jacket potatoes with choice of hot or cold filling
- drinks, fruit, cakes and biscuits
