Reservations & Food and Drink Ordering

We require all customers to make a reservation, including those accessing our walk-in takeaway services to book a slot as we operate closely with Halls of Residence so keeping everyone safe is a priority. We strongly advise you to pre-book online as we cannot guarantee that we can always accept walk-ins. The maximum group size we are able to take is 6 and we need the details of all members of your group. When standing up and moving around we require all customers, that are able to, to wear a face covering.

In accordance with government guidelines we are collecting contact details to support the Coronavirus contact tracing scheme, view our policy here

In September we will be offering a reduced menu due to Covid-19 restrictions
