We have cafés at all of our campuses where staff, students and visitors can relax and enjoy hot and cold food and a range of beverages.
During term time, our cafés open each morning from 8.00am at all campuses. At Oxford and Banbury, they remain open until 8.00pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays during term time, and at Blackbird Leys and Bicester the cafes open until 3.30pm each day.
We are committed to Fairtrade and healthy eating, but we support individual choice by offering these products alongside more popular, traditional foods and snacks.
You can enjoy a delicious two or three-course lunch or evening meal in our renowned restaurants. Our training restaurants - the Cherwell in Banbury, and the Waterside in Oxford - provide our students with the relevant work experience and qualifications they need for a successful career in hospitality and catering.
The restaurants are operated by students who are working towards a range of qualifications at differing levels. We aim to educate our students, to the highest possible standards, in preparation for employment at some of the world’s most prestigious establishments.
Individual and party bookings are welcome and special dietary requirements can be catered for with prior notice.
We are very grateful to all our customers and to numerous local businesses for their continued support.
