Raise the Disco – raised a lot!

We had an absolute blast with our friends at Second step a couple of week’s ago.
Raise the disco was a night organised by Izzy from Second Step and The Canteen. A disco night where all donations on the door went to the charity. If you came you know that it was good vibes all night long and we had plenty of people shaking their thang on the dance floor.

The money raised has gone towards starting a brand new fund for Second Step service users. Sylvia’s Fund will be available to any current Second Step service user who wishes to apply for help to allow them to improve their well being. The fund can be used to buy something as simple as a paint brush or pay for a day’s course in music therapy or creative writing.

Find out more about Second Step and the great work they do in the city here and thanks to everyone who came and made this possible.

Here’s some photo’s from the night and keep a look out for the next one!

Burns Night

Happy new year to all our Canteen customers!

Our first event of 2017 is just around the corner and we are celebrating Burns night at in style.

Throughout the day we will have dishes on the menu that celebrate Scottish culinary traditions (Haggis will be a feature!)  and a wide range of lip smackingly good whiskey behind the bar, perfect for a post work tipple.

Once the sun is down we’ll have a very special musical guest taking to the stage to celebrate in raucous style.

Keep an eye out for more announcements as you won’t want to miss this one.

Jungle – New Years Eve at The Canteen

Jungle is AND WILL BE massive!

The Canteen is preparing itself for one MASSIVE New Years Eve from the guys who brought you Asbo Disco and BrisFest comes Jungle:


Calling all creatures great and small

Over the great plains and across the mighty gorge exists a tropical paradise untouched by the outside world. A perfect balance of nature exists here where rich diversity flourishes and natural resources are plentiful. All of the animals live here in perfect harmony. Word is being passed from parrot to python, bat to bear, leopard to lemur and cricket to crocodile; that message is universal – together we shall celebrate the New Year.

Expect themed decor, Jungle dress code and a wild atmosphere.

Our beast of a lineup will be announced on 1st December

Way down deep in the middle of the Jungle where they creep to the smooth beats – let the bass rumble.

The Severn Project Crowd Funder

We have been buying top quality produce from the Severn project for nearly 7 years. They can always be relied upon to provide fantastic service with the personal touch as well as really high quality ingredients that help keep The Canteen sustainable and seasonal.


The Severn Project is constantly evolving and developing and they need your help to put down some roots of certainty in Holt (Wiltshire). Moving to the new site would mean that they can expand their range to include vegetables and would be able to grow around 15 tons per year of parsley, coriander, mint, dill, edible flowers and peashoots to keep up with customer demand.

If you are interested in local food production at scale this crowdfunder should interest you. They are an organisation that invite the community to integrate with the whole business of food production from field to plate, helping to stimulate the local economy through both sales and employment.

To back this project follow this link and help make market gardening viable and visible.

Lush lunches at The Canteen

Not got much time at lunch?

As well as our daily lunch time offerings of delectable dishes, we are now selling a range of sandwiches that follow our usual ethos of sustainability, with different fillings including vegetarian and vegan options cooked up daily by head chef, Christabel Courtauld.


Pork Belly, sauerkraut and mustard

Our sandwiches are priced between £3-£4 and are made using our own bread from the The Old Market Assembly Bakery.  Why not treat yourself to some take away cake for dessert? Or if you have a little more time get yourself the ultimate lunch time combination of soup and a sandwich.
