Welcome to Clever Cuisine

Now you can eat what you want, where you want, when you want. Enjoy meals that are expertly cooked, using only the freshest ingredients anywhere on campus. With discounts of up to 75% and inclusive drinks, Clever Cuisine is inclusive for students living in catered accommodation and available to all other students by the term or year.

Restaurant Grade Chefs

All meals are freshly cooked by top grade chefs. Extensive menus have been carefully created to ensure everyone’s tastes are catered for in the most nutritious way possible. It’s cuisine that’s cleverer by far.

Nutritious & Delicious

We source fresh ingredients from sustainable producers including beef and fruits from our very own farms. Our menus are devised to be both delicious and nutritious, providing balanced meals at all times of the day with a plant based option always available.

Places To Eat

Lectures take you all over campus, so now you can eat where your University life takes you. Clever Cuisine is available in up to 13 places to eat spread over halls, Whiteknights and London Road.

Clever Cuisine

So how does it work? Very simply is the answer; meal swipes (exchanged for a meal) and/or free cash is added to your Campus Card automatically every Saturday morning for you to spend.
