Food & Menu
At Stonyhurst St Mary's Hall we understand the importance of a balanced diet and good nutrition for the health and wellbeing of our pupils. The carefully planned, daily menu ensures there is an option to suit all palates. Hot and cold options, a variety of vegetables, a full salad bar at lunchtime, desserts and a selection of fresh fruit are offered to pupils, staff and visitors, including a vegetarian alternative. The weekly menu is posted beside the refectory. We also cater for pupils and staff with allergies or food intolerances. The provision of healthy and nutritious food extends to packed meals where healthier options replace high fat, high salt and/or high sugar items. Juice and water are available at mealtimes.
The extensive daily menu is not restricted to traditional English food but includes other cuisine, such as Mexican, Indian, Chinese and Italian. In order to reflect our multi-national pupil body, themed days are incorporated into the menus to coincide with national holidays.
In keeping with its ethos, Stonyhurst has achieved official Fair Trade status (one of the few schools in the country to do so), sourcing as much as possible from Fair Trade produce.
