Catering Services

Catering is provided at three sites on the Heriot's campus - the School Refectory, the Tuck Shop and the GMC Café.

The Refectory provides lunch for pupils from P3 upwards, although pupils of all years are welcome to eat their own lunches in the Refectory.

The food in the Refectory is varied made using fresh local produce; it adheres to the Chinese Menu in the RefectorySchool's Healthy Eating principles with the emphasis on providing a balanced diet that helps, rather than hinders, the learning process.

Senior School pupils may use the Refectory at break to purchase hot and cold rolls, sandwiches, baguettes, fresh fruit, muffins and other snacks.

At lunchtime, when Junior and Senior pupils use the Refectory, a full menu of hot and cold food is provided with two daily specials, one of which is vegetarian. Homemade soup, fresh fruit salad, and baked potatoes are always available along with a daily choice of pizza and pasta. FruitPupils may eat in the Refectory or ‘grab and go' from the Deli area.

It is open from 7.30am until 1.30pm offering staff and pupils freshly made speciality drinks and breakfast items; at lunchtime it features a build your own roll or wrap opportunity along with a speciality salad, meal soup and a hot snack.
