The Bedales Catering Department puts together a varied and healthy menu each term. The self-service buffet allows students to choose from two main meals a day of home-made soups; a range of salads; hot and cold dishes - with a vegetarian option; a pasta bar; fruit; yoghurts and other puddings.

All meals are freshly cooked in our kitchens and locally sourced where possible. Favourite dishes are chicken korma, with sirloin steak and sautéed potatoes coming a close second. Baked Alaska and sticky toffee pudding are popular desserts. The day is given a kick-start with a cooked English breakfast, a choice of cereals, toast and croissants. Mid-morning and mid-afternoon (home-made cakes) snacks help fill any gaps.

Staff and students eat together in our historic dining hall.

In addition to this, the boarding houses contain kitchens where students are able to help themselves to tea, toast and fruit.

Our Catering Manager can discuss special diets and allergies on request.
