Welcome to BOFFINS!

Here we are passionate about local, seasonal and fresh products.

We consider our environmental footprint by eliminating mileage on produce, limiting food waste in the production of the menu and supporting smaller farmers and producers over large scale enterprises and mass production.

Our chefs are in regular contact with our local farmers and suppliers and source food directly from farm gates where possible.

Menus can change daily, based on supply and are ever evolving. Here you will experience the best produce available served with daily baked bread and artisan butter.


Not sure what to select from the menu?

We offer a  “FEED ME” experience where you can leave it up to the chef to serve you a selection of 2 small and 2 large dishes as well an individual dessert in a sharing style format.


Boffins,  a casual contemporary dining destination at University House.


Looking to book a group?

Don’t worry about the hassle to choose the dishes and ensuring that everyone is getting something they may like. Talk to our team about our “Feed me” menu and we will look after you.

Our Chef will happily assist in selecting the menu favourites for you and work around the possible dietaries of the group. The Feed me option will ensure that there is plenty of food on the table.

Contact our Boffins team for further information on group bookings above 8 guests or on how to book our brand new 16 seats private dining room.
