At Stonyhurst, all staff and students eat together at breakfast, lunch and dinner in our modern Refectory. This is another time for your child to practise his or her improving English.

We understand the importance of a balanced diet and good nutrition for the health and well-being of our students.  Our food is freshly prepared by Stonyhurst’s excellent catering team and our carefully planned, daily menus provide options that everyone will like.

There is always a selection of hot and cold dishes, a variety of vegetables, soup and a full salad bar at lunchtime, tempting desserts and a selection of fresh fruit. We also cater for students with allergies, food intolerance and special diets so please do let us know if your child has any special dietary requirements.
