The Cider Orchard Restaurant

Please note that the Restaurant is closed from end of May to mid September (College holidays).

This delightful corner of the Hereford campus is the perfect retreat for a delicious lunch or dinner. All food is prepared and served by catering students, but the fabulous range of culinary delights by far exceeds what many people might expect from a training restaurant. A mouth watering range of seasonal dishes from fresh local produce are prepared and served to the highest standards, offering exceptional value for money. The clean white walls, contemporary licensed bar and smart plum upholstery set against crisp linen creates the perfect relaxed yet sophisticated atmosphere. 

The Lunch and Dinner Menus are changed on a monthly basis to reflect the seasons. All dishes are freshly prepared and cooked to order, using locally sourced ingredients.


Coffee and cakes are served from 10.30am - 12 noon with Lunch from noon until 2pm. Dinner is served on a Wednesday evening from 6.15pm - 9.30pm

The Cider Orchard Restaurant is open for lunch from 12pm - 2pm (Tuesday - Friday). Last orders for food: 1.00pm
