Due to the nature of our operation we cannot guarantee that our food is 100% free from any allergens.

Speak to a member of our staff, who can provide information on allergens for the food produced in our kitchens.

A comprehensive list of the known allergens present in every dish we serve is also available at service points.

Most pre-packaged food you can buy on campus is labelled with ingredients and allergen information.
