Featured story

Origins is in Darwin College on the University of Kent’s Canterbury campus.

Origins is a place where you roll up your sleeves and get stuck-in to a menu full of American smokehouse favourites. All their pitmaster classics are smoked in-house over hickory wood and served-up with tempting sides. Signature dishes include: homemade nachos, po’boys, gourmet burgers, topped fries and chicken wings. 

Origins is all about authentic smoky flavours in a relaxed, fun and informal atmosphere. 

If you still have room after your main, why not try one of their indulgent desserts? The hot chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream is a favourite amongst many.
Eating at Origins is about loosening your belt, getting a crowd together and enjoying wallet-friendly feasts with your friends and colleagues.
