No.1 bistro in the Rochester building is a great place to meet friends for lunch. Enjoy hot meals cooked to order in a relaxed setting, or grab something fresh from a range of sandwiches, panini and other snacks if you’re on the go.

CARGO is our brand new award winning bar and bistro, right next to Liberty Quays accommodation. It is a stunning nautical and industrial-style venue and the perfect place to sample some of the best live music acts the area has to offer. The soft lounge and group booth seating provides a friendly and relaxed setting to watch one the eight LCD TV screens showing music and sporting events. Our mouth-watering, but wallet-friendly, modern bistro-style lunch and dinner menus allow you to enjoy fresh and tasty food throughout the day.

Coopers serves a delicious range of food every day. There’s a brand new menu offering a bigger variety of dishes, and more healthy options than ever before. All food is reasonably priced and served really quickly, so you’ll always have enough time to grab a quick bite to eat between lectures.

Archibald Hay Mess café in the Drill Hall Library, serves sandwiches, snacks and hot/cold drinks and gives you the opportunity to take a well-earned break from your studies.

The Venue café in the Pilkington Building is a great space in which to meet with friends and relax between lectures. The café serves homemade sandwiches using local and free range produce along with a range of Fairtrade tea and coffee.

The Dockside retail outlet is five minutes’ walk from the campus and offers a range of bars, pubs and restaurants.
