Clare College Cambridge

Welcome to Clare Catering


The Clare College Catering Department provides meals for Fellows, students and members of staff. A self-service lunch and dinner is served in the Buttery during term-time.

Served dinners ('Formal Hall') are also provided Monday to Thursday for undergraduates and their guests, and on Friday for postgraduates, in term-time. The Department also provides special catering to the Master and Fellows, and hosts high profile Functions, Conferences and Private Catering.

Our staff are our most important asset and we continue to invest in their development and training needs. In particular, the Catering Department is manned by staff from diverse backgrounds, creating a harmonious and positive blend in the delivery of its services.
