Key information

  • Days open: Monday to Sunday, 7.30am-8.30pm

Eat Central will welcome students from the summer schools onto campus for breakfast, lunch and dinner throughout the summer break. The restaurant will remain be open to the campus community, however the peak times will be as follows:

  • Breakfast: 7.30am-10am
  • Lunch: 11.30am-2.30pm
  • Dinner: 5pm-8pm

For a quieter break, we advise visiting outside of the above times or making the short walk down to Arts café, which offers an extended menu.

  • Location on campus: Ground floor of Bramber House, opposite the Co-operative supermarket


The interior has hot and cold food counters and canteen-style tables and chairs, each seating groups of about five or six people.


There are plenty of fixed tables and benches directly outside Eat Central, partly shaded by trees depending on the time of day.


The Eat Central menu is different every day.
