Food & Menus

There is a commitment to ensuring food served to staff and pupils is of the highest quality. The food is varied and plentiful for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a team of 20 front and backroom staff from caterers Holroyd Howe on hand to serve meals with a smile in Mess Hall.
The refurbishment of the Mess Hall in summer 2014 created two entrances to the serving stations and brought with it a fresh and more modern look, which has been well received by the Pangbourne community.
Hungry students can help themselves to soup, a choice of hot and cold food, offerings from the well-stocked salad bar and dessert over lunchtime.
Vegetarian options are always made available. Additionally, there is also a jacket potato and/or pasta bar option offered daily.
