Lakeside Coffee Shop

The Lakeside Restaurant is now closed for easter and will reopen on the 17th of April.

Serving barista-style, triple-certified coffee, the Lakeside Coffee Shop offers the perfect environment for students, staff and visitors to relax and enjoy first-class food and drink. At the Lakeside Coffee Shop we care about the planet so we try to use bio-degradable products wherever possible with the help of our supplier Vegware. From our branded coffee cups and lids to our knives, forks and spoons, everything is compostable.
