What we offer

We offer residential catering packages to save you time and money; you can choose from package options including breakfast-only, dinner-only or both, and can expect great quality, fresh and nutritional meals.

The dining facilities in Castle Leazes are available to all Newcastle University students and guests (no matter where you live); it's a fantastic place to meet new people and socialise. If you're a self-catered student, you can 'pay as you eat' in the dining hall, or buy into the fully catered package at any point during the year. 

You'll benefit from a wide range of choice, including continental or traditional breakfasts and a three-course evening meal (consisting of a variety of options including meat-based, vegetarian, vegan and Halal for starters and mains, as well as traditional/healthy desserts).

Our menus have been prepared by our experienced chefs and consist of a range of daily options, including meat-based, vegetarian, vegan and halal dishes. The menus change each term, and we also serve different dishes each week (on a 3-week rotation) so that you won't get bored! You can see the menus for the current term below.

Information on allergens for each of the dishes will be available in the servery. If in doubt, please don't hesitate to ask us!


Opening hours

In the 2020-21 academic year, we will be serving breakfast between 8.00 and 10.30am, and evening meals between 5.30 and 8pm.
