Feed the Mind: Harwell Campus workers to get food offering as new food quarter opens


Harwell Campus, the home of scientists and technologies with brains the size of the universe, is launching a new food and drink sector, constructed entirely of funky converted shipping containers.

The first of its kind in Oxfordshire, the concept has been christened DiSH, and will offer a mix of independent cafes, bars and eateries which are usually found in big city locations like Oxford or London but are now heading to this unique destination.

Because of course our amazing scientists and technologies need food for ground breaking thought.

Open to everyone, the outlets will include Indian food, locally sourced coffee, pastries and cocktails, salads, burgers and vegan food.

Stuart Grant, Chief Executive of Harwell Campus said: “We’re delighted to be able to improve the facilities and amenities on the campus, not only for the people who work at Harwell but for Oxfordshire residents and visitors too. We want DiSH to be a meeting point where people can get together, have a good catch up and enjoy amazing food and drink.”

Thibault Bouquet de Jolinière, Development Director, DiSH added: “We’re so excited to be unveiling DiSH and welcoming guests to everything it will have to offer. This has been such an inspiring project to work on, bringing the best of street food into the rather unconventional setting that are – shipping containers! We cannot wait to introduce you to our array of six food vendors, bringing flavours, vibrance, and a great atmosphere to the amazing place that is Harwell Campus. So much more is to come too… So make sure you’re there first! You won’t want to miss it.”
