Events and catering

Catering services

Eat is the brand name of the University’s catering services. Our experienced and dedicated teams aim to deliver a quality service whether delivering tea and coffee to a department meeting, providing meals for our student and staff population or formal dining for a VIP event.

Quality, seasonal, locally sourced and ethical ingredients are key to the development of our menus and offer, with a large percentage of our food being produced right here on campus.

We have a wide choice of venues throughout the campus including cafés, bars and restaurants, including the more formal dining experience of our Blandford’s restaurant at Park House.
