North Lindsey College have been working with Caterlink as our catering provider for the past few years. Caterlink are the nationwide education specialist in catering and pride themselves on having a fresh food approach to their outlets. Working in partnership with the College an ‘upgrade’ of the catering facilities has been started.

A Starbucks coffee lounge was introduced to the main diner area. Our existing Costa Coffee outlet was moved across campus to its new home in the Maurice Taylor building. The College shop gained a ‘make while you wait’ deli bar and the whole of the diner area was refreshed with new décor, new furniture and flooring.

Start Your Day The Right Way with a FREE Breakfast offer for Students. Available from 8.15am - 9am in the diner, a limited selection of breakfast options are available for the first 100 students who show their student ID card each day.

The new deli bar is an addition to the ever-popular College shop. Select your bread, choose your filling from the selection freshly prepared each day, then top up with salad - a great value lunchtime offer to eat in or take away. The shop is usually buzzing with staff and students either choosing a pre-prepared sandwich, grabbing a hot drink or debating which homemade cake to buy. Great money saving Meal Deals and loyalty cards are valid to use here too!

Whether it's an Iced Caramel Latte or a warming Hot Chocolate you're after, this is THE place to be seen.
With the smell of freshly ground coffee and the temptation of a homemade cake on offer, why not sit back & relax in Starbucks while your lunchtime baguette is being freshly made by our expert staff at The Deli.

The Deli also stocks a variety of cold drinks, crisps & confectionery. Homemade pre packed sandwiches, pasta pots and dessert pots are also available.

Another taste of the High Street here at NLC, where our Costa Trained staff can make you your choice of drink, so whether it's an extra shot espresso or a Hazelnut Cappuccino, just let our barista know. Alongside the extensive Costa Drinks menu, this outlet also stocks a range of homemade sandwiches, paninis, cakes, pasta pots, with a small crisps & confectionery range. A limited hot food selection is also on offer here with Jackets & Homemade Soup available.

This outlet can get very busy at peak times, with every drink handcrafted for each customer..... some things really are worth the wait.

Vending Services

Caterlink operates the vending services across campus. We have both Hot & Cold drinks vendors within the diner area which operate all year round.

For those students who qualify for FSM's (Free Student Meals), these details are uploaded onto your Student ID card and the till system within the catering outlets automatically deducts the cost of your meal choice from your daily allowance. This allows you to spread the cost of your allowance throughout the day. In addition to this you are able to add funds to your card via the Way to Pay portal, accessed through Moodle or the college website. You will need your own log in details and a credit or debit card to do this. Log in details are provided by the college. As a catering service we will always accept cash, however, this card top up system allows you to purchase goods even if you've forgotten your purse/wallet. There is no cash machine on campus, however, by the end of this academic year we will be able to accept debit card payments at 2 outlets on site.
