Affordable food and drink on campus

Great Food at Leeds (GFaL) is delighted to be offering a range of quality food and drink options for the University community at affordable prices.

Building on the existing low cost food options already available in our outlets, we are adding even more affordable meals to ensure there’s a diverse range of inexpensive choices for you. All of the meal options below are available for £3 or less* from either the Refectory or across GFaL operated cafes on campus.

What’s new?

Start your day right with an Early Bird Breakfast Special. Available weekdays from the Refectory, 8am – 9am, and Café Seven, 8:30am – 9:30am.

  • Breakfast sandwich £1.25 – Choose from bacon, sausage, vegetarian sausage or egg
  • Breakfast sandwich and a regular hot drink £2.50 – Choose your favourite breakfast sandwich and a hot drink from the self-service hot drinks station

Our Daily Lunch Specials for £2.95 in the Refectory are available on weekdays from 12 – 2pm. These will include a meat-based and vegan meal option on a daily changing menu rotation.

Nothing says ‘comfort’ like a bowl of homemade stew! Our Homemade Stew of the Day for £2.95 is coming soon to our cafés on campus! Served with a wedge of bread for dunking, this is a winter warmer you won’t want to miss.

Customer favourites

In addition to our new specials, we already offer affordable menu favourites in the Refectory and across our cafés. Get the Chicken Value Box for £2.50, with either a southern fried chicken fillet strip or plant-based chicken fillet and rice or skinny fries.

If you prefer pizza, we’ve got you covered! Grab a pizza slice for £2.10 or a slice and regular soft drink for £2.95.

Our Homemade Soup of the Day for £2.65 is served with artisan bread for dipping and is available from the Refectory and now also our cafés on campus. Our favourite is butternut squash and sweet potato, but you’ll soon discover yours!

You can find the Refectory and many of our cafes on the Too Good To Go app, place an order and rescue a Magic Bag before closing time. Food offerings range from sandwiches to hot daily specials. You don’t know what you are going to get, but the bag of food costs 50% (or more!) less than the retail price.
