A buzzing café feel with fantastically fresh and healthy food and freshly brewed coffee makes this a popular haunt with staff, students and visitors... open later for 2020, food and drinks from Zest can also be enjoyed in the adjoining Orangery study area.

There is a large café area with a good sized outside seating area which makes eating in or takeaway equally popular. Homemade cakes and pastries make Zest particularly popular for afternoon tea and treats!
