Cafés & Restaurants

BCA has three refreshment facilities across the campus for students, staff and visitors to purchase food, drinks and snacks during college hours.


Situated in the courtyard most central to the campus you will find the Courtyard Cafeteria, the main canteen, supplying the largest variety of hot food of the three eateries for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Just a stone’s throw from the Courtyard Cafeteria, is Cheeki’s Café a favourite for those looking to grab food on the go, and arguably serves the best hot beverages on campus.

Finally, there is the North Café, situated at the furthest north end of the campus. North Café is the largest of the three, boasting impressive IT facilities and the opportunity to have a game of pool or two during breaks.

All three offer a wide range of food options such as wraps and sandwiches, and the Courtyard Cafeteria offers hot food ranging from cooked breakfasts to a selection of daily specials; always including a vegetarian option.

Even when the cafe’s and canteen have stopped serving food for the day, well stocked vending machines ensure that whatever the time, there is always access to something to eat.
