Our Menus

Unfortunately the College has made the very difficult decision to close the restaurant to protect our students, staff and our valued clientele. We don’t want to add to the ongoing risk.

We will re-open and bounce back with special offers so keep an eye out. We are so sorry for any inconvenience and thank you for your continued support.

Thank you
The Open Kitchen


We change our menus on a daily basis so that you get the very best seasonal ingredients. Please take a look at some sample menus below which give you a flavour of what we have to offer.
