Face coverings
Please note that you are required to wear a face covering in all of our catering outlets until you sit down to eat.
Track and Trace
To help reduce the risk of a local outbreak of coronavirus, we are required by law to take contact details of our customers who eat and drink in our venues. In line with government guidance, we will keep these details for 21 days. We will only share them with NHS Test and Trace, if asked, in the event of a potential outbreak. Please scan the QR code on display in each outlet and complete the form that it generates. Alternatively, please complete the form here. 

There are many different catering outlets to choose from, each with its own style and character, so whether you prefer to grab a coffee and work on your laptop, or to go somewhere comfy to enjoy a home-cooked meal, there is a great choice.

Eat Well

Did you know we have an Eat Well policy, based on the NHS Eat Well Guide to help you ensure you choose the right balance of food to optimise your diet?

 Our catering doesn't cost the earth!

Take a look at our environmental policy to see what we are doing to ensure our catering operation is environmentally friendly. 

Have you got the bottle?

We now have 450ml Royal Holloway branded, BPA free, stainless steel drinks bottles available to purchase in every catering outlet across campus. Free tap water refills are available all over campus too, so save money, stay hydrated and reduce plastic pollution!
