Bars and Dining Concierge

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. You can find out more by visiting Giving Food More Thought.

If you have a question about Clever Cuisine, you’ll most likely find the answer quickest by visiting including looking at the FAQs and the Terms and Conditions pages.

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 hearing your ideas on possible solutions to problems, however we do ask that you always try to present these to our team in a respectful and courteous manner – although we know this can be hard at time.

Guest enquiries should be sent to and please include as much detail as possible to help us answer your query. We aren’t able to assist with hire, table reservations, event or delivered catering queries – for assistance please visit Venue Reading and Venue Henley Pages.

We operate the following outlets and services: The Dairy, Architecture Cafe, Park House, Park Eat/Bar/Market, Wantage Bar, St. Patrick’s Dining Hall, Ice House, Wantage Dining Hall, The Square and Clever Cuisine.
