1st floor Park Side cafe, ideal informal meeting space

University staff will be pleased to hear that Residential and Commercial Services (RACS) have recently extended the seating area in the 1st floor Park Side café, Charles Wilson. Offering a range of hot and cold drinks and selection of cakes, the 1st floor café offers an ideal informal meeting space for staff wanting to escape the busy campus.

This is subject to large private bookings of the entire Park Side restaurant.

The Park Side restaurant service is available throughout the year, with the option of booking for large or small private events and served lunches. With a delicious 3 week rotational menu and spectacular views of Victoria Park, the restaurant is perfect for entertaining internal and external guests.
