Manningtree Mess Hall
Welcome to the Manningtree Mess Hall page.
We are open for breakfast from 8am to 8.30am, when you can purchase pancakes, crumpets, cereal, fresh fruit and hot drinks, along with a selection of items from our cold cabinet. So whether you want to pop in for breakfast or pick up a snack/drink for the day ahead, we would love to see you!
At break times we serve bacon and sausage baguettes, pizzas, hash browns, a selection of paninis, breakfast pastries and drinks (see break time menu below). We also serve a full English breakfast on Mondays for just £1.99. At lunchtimes we serve our main meal (see below), plus a great selection of hot food in our ‘grab and go’ cabinets. Cold food, including homemade cakes, pasta salads and sandwiches are also available on a daily basis.
Our ‘Hot Meal Deal’ costs £2.30 and includes our 'Dish of the Day' and any 70p item from the cold cabinet. Our ‘Cold Meal Deal’ includes any small roll and two 70p items.
Wednesday is “Roast day” – with our meats being sourced from Coleman Butchers in Boxted. All of the fresh fruit that we use in our fruit pots is sourced locally from Anglia Produce. As a school, we endeavour to follow a healthy food route and always encourage our students to try something new.
The ‘Snack Shack’ in our covered area outside is very popular. The 'shack' serves a variety of hot and cold food, crisps and popcorn and during the summer months, ice creams and lollies.
As a school, we are aware that some of our students may suffer with food allergies and you will see that our main meal menus summarise relevant allergy advice and are available for you to download below. All other items sold have allergy information displayed on their labels or the details are listed on boards for the students to see. Our catering staff are aware of the allergens in all of our products, so we encourage students to ask if they are at all unsure.
We strive to ensure that the food and drink we sell complies with school nutritional guidelines and is also in line with the food standard policy for schools.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact the school canteen.
We look forward to seeing you very soon.
