Wholesome and Sustainable

Duets catering offers a range of products based on raw seasonal materials. All local meat and poultry suppliers meet animal welfare standards. Only free-range eggs are used. To keep road miles to a minimum wherever possible, Duets uses local suppliers.

Fairtrade and Rainforest Alliance teas and coffee are served and free chilled drinking water is available throughout the College. Duets does not knowingly use any genetically modified foods.

Duets provides a wide range of fresh, seasonal, homemade foods for you to make a healthy choice.

Allergies and Special Diets

We can provide vegan, coeliac, halal and lacto-free foods. Please speak to the Duets catering staff who will be happy to help where possible.

Nut Allergy

Although a lot of our products do not contain nuts, we do use nuts in the production of other items so there may be trace elements in all our products.

Please abide by the College Charter while using the catering outlets.

Please carry your student ID as you may be asked to produce it on request.

We do not provide accommodation for you to consume food and drink NOT purchased in Duets.
