Scholars Hospitality

Here at UCLan we pride ourselves on providing a high quality professional and friendly catering service and have a wealth of skills and experience to deliver the broadest range of delicious products from a simple sandwich to a prestige event for over 500 people.

Scholars is the hospitality section of the University’s Catering Service and we provide the catering for all corporate and University events ranging from a small and intimate buffet, celebration event to full silver served dinner.

Preston and the surrounding areas have some of the finest growers and producers of food products in the UK; our aim is to support local producers by utilising the ever-increasing range of local produce. Our team of professional chefs produce excellent home-made dishes using, when possible Fairtrade and locally grown produce, giving a wide choice and value for money.

All our tea, coffee and sugar served is Fairtrade and we have a selection of Fairtrade wines available from Scholars Restaurant and Bar. We welcome and regularly seek feedback from all of our customers so we may continuously improve our standard of service.
