Bars and Dining are responsible for operating the majority of plated food and bar services across the University as well as Clever Cuisine. We are owned by the University and are working to transform the services we operate so we consistently offer an outstanding experience to all our guests. The Menus of Change principles are at the heart of our food and drink offerings working to improve both human and planetary health through continuous improvement.

Our Concierge Team are here to help and answer any questions you may have or help with any problems or issues either in person at the Concierge Desk at Park Eat or via email. We do appreciate your ideas on possible solutions to problems and always ask that our team are dealt with in a respectful and courtesy manner – we know this can be hard on the more passionate issues.
