Catering Services

Coronavirus (COVID-19) update - 25 March 2020

The hospitality services are operating an online shop to help with the supply of produce.

We have devised a 'shop menu' with available local and fresh produce which individuals can purchase online and collect in Drake's Kitchen. The shop menu features meats, eggs, milk, as well as other goods to purchase. Sandwich meal deals are also available to pre-order.

Contact for more information on the products available to purchase.

We will operate the hospitality shop for as long as we are able, providing that we can still acquire items, please check our social media channels daily for updates on stock.

We want to thank you all for your continued support for us.

Please stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people. Wash your hands upon entry and as soon as you get home.

The University offers a range of catering facilities for students, staff and visitors on campus. All eating areas are modern, self service operations and prices are lower than many non-university outlets. 

Fairtrade and locally produced products are widely promoted and the University operates a comprehensive recycling programme. 


We offer a variety of options to suit your hospitality needs. We aim to use as much locally produced free range and Fairtrade ingredients in all our buffets. Most needs can be catered for including gluten free and vegan buffets, however, if you require any particular menu for your event please do not hesitate to contact us.

Our team is available during the normal working week and out of hours at additional rates. We use the same ethical suppliers and purchasing on our hospitality menus as our cafes, so you can enjoy our food and drink with the knowledge we do what we can no matter where you dine with us.

Our hospitality packages are designed to make your day easier, more enjoyable and to fit within your available budgets. When you book your rooms, please check you have separate spaces and tables for your catering to be served on, or additional breakout spaces to minimise the disruption to your guests.

All hospitality orders carry a minimum charge of £25.00 including delivery.

We can also accommodate your external functions. 

In order to meet hospitality requests bookings are required 48 hours prior to the event. Late orders may not be accepted.
