New catering facilities for Reading
The University of Reading has announced the completion of its catering facilities redevelopment.
The new lecture theatre and wide-range of dining facilities are due to a £20 million investment by the University. Options include fine dining restaurants and several quick-choice lunch eateries, including Park Eat and Eat at the Square.
Students can also refuel after a workout at the gym with a tasty snack in the Eat café at the SportsPark.
Crucially, all of these outlets are served by the newly built Central Kitchen, which is home to skilled chefs using brand new, state-of-the-art equipment, to produce tasty food that caters for all diets.
Matthew White, the University of Reading's Head of Catering said: "We are committed to providing the very best experience for our students. These fantastic new facilities mean Reading now provides a catering service that is second-to-none across the UK University sector. Our fully flexible catered package allows our students living in catered accommodation to eat where they want, when they want, using smartcard technology contained on their Campus Card.”
The last three years have also seen the refurbishment of the Park House bar and restaurant area, and the introduction of an a la carte restaurant, Blandford's, a high-end eatery for staff and their visitors.
