The Kitchen do their best to give plenty of choice in order that most dietary requirements are accommodated, and provide allergen information with the menus on the day, but they are unable to guarantee that all diets are catered for at every mealtime. However, they make a point of doing so for special occasions, such as the Freshers’ Dinner, so that everyone feels comfortable about attending. We therefore encourage you to disclose any dietary needs here.
