Reservoir cafe

Now a member of the Vegetarian Society, this is the ideal cafe for vegetarians and vegan customers. 

Perched on the edge of campus overlooking the restored Drake's Reservoir and Gardens, our Reservoir Cafe offers a haven of tranquility, in an often sun-drenched position.

Discover our unique vegetarian and vegan cafe which serves divine healthy salads and fillings freshly prepared by our expert chefs.

We use bio-degradable platters and compostable pots for you to take away and enjoy in your favourite spot in the gardens where you can enjoy a game of Ping! table tennis.
