The Cherwell

We are open during term time only.

The Cherwell provides lunches to external customers. It is also used as a venue for college events.

Our usual opening hours are: Tuesdays for lunch from noon–1pm.

Whatever the occasion, whether it be a romantic meal, birthday celebration, business lunch, or large parties (we can seat up to 40), we have excellent facilities to ensure that you’ll have an experience to remember.

  • Our menus feature exciting new dishes and offer locally sourced produce (whenever possible) at great prices
  • Students prepare for future employment by training in a modern commercial kitchen environment
  • Tutors with industry experience are always on-hand to make sure everything runs smoothly.

To book, please email us and specify your desired time and location (Waterside Restaurant or The Cherwell).

Please inform us of any allergies or intolerance you may have and we will adjust our menus accordingly to suit your needs. Regrettably, we cannot guarantee that food will be prepared in a nut- or gluten-free kitchen.
