Hart Kitchens

Hart Kitchens

Hart Kitchens is our student-run contemporary restaurant serving high-quality food. Under the direction of our expert tutors, our students design, prepare and serve all of the menus to staff, students and the general public.

Every time you dine at Hart Kitchens, you’re contributing towards the future of our catering and hospitality students who gain valuable work experience by working in the restaurant as trainee chefs and waiting staff.

Hart Kitchens gives our students the opportunity to practice their skills by laying out tables, hosting, preparing food, cooking, serving, stock management, event planning and customer service. 

Hart Deli is a new way for us to continue to offer the same great food at Hart Kitchens, but allowing us to respect the current climate we are all in.

All our food is made using the finest ingredients, using local suppliers and often locally sourced. We hope you can enjoy a takeaway option from the deli.

We’re very excited to be safely re-opening on the 17th May. We are now taking bookings for lunchtime visits from this date onward*, make your booking today by completing the form at the bottom of the page.

We’ve made many safety updates to the restaurant to help protect you and our brilliant students at this time.

We endeavour to operate under Government guidelines. Click here to see more information about the changes we’ve made to protect you against COVID -19.

*The re-opening date (17th April 2021) is a proposed date from The Government’s in the roadmap and is dependent upon certain criteria being met (therefore bookings may be subject to change).
