Freshly sourced produce, a wide variety of different cuisines and a barista coffee bar only at The Alchemist’s Restaurant

You may have noticed that we love food at NatMatSci – from afternoon teas, to cultural food from festivals around the globe, to the NatMatSci Bake Off so this year, we were delighted to open The Alchemist’s Restaurant, our new dining hall with onsite catering at the residence.

The Alchemist’s Restaurant has been a huge success since opening; providing breakfast, lunch and dinner for our boarding students and lunch for our day students. With 26 different nationalities represented in our college community this year, we are happy that we can provide a fantastic variety of dishes and specific diets, to suit even the most discerning ‘foodie’.

A variety of balanced healthy options.

Located on the ground floor of our new residence, the dining hall provides a large communal area to relax in, a barista coffee bar for some lattes and cappuccinos and of course in true NatMatSci style, our STEM inspired murals by UK based illustrator Melita Berg, check out some of the fantastic work she has done for Vans, BBC, Dior etc.
