OXFORD Brookes University's restaurant has announced its student-led events which start on Tuesday, February 5.

As part of their final year, its catering students use hands-on experience by applying management concepts and theories within the working environment of the Restaurant. They’ll be expected to pull together everything they have learned over their four years of study to deliver a successful event.


The first, Endangered Flavours of the Rainforest, is being held on Tuesday, February 5, followed by The Delta Trail Blues on Thursday 7, right through to The Botanist’s Journal on Thursday, April 4.

Brookes Restaurant is a unique facility where students can learn about successful business operations, develop their product knowledge, and feed their passion for food and wine, while catering for its clientele


  • You’ve probably heard about the new penchant for nude dining currently sweeping Oxford? So why not throw away your inhibitions (and clothes) and join Native Feasts for a one-night-only naked feast. Yes that is right. Food-in-the-nude at Tap Social on Tuesday Feb 5.

Naturist group Dine Naked Oxford, members of British Naturism, are looking to host their first event. Dine Naked Oxford provides naked dining experiences in and around Oxford, in a safe environment to promote healthy body image.


Arrive for a pint or a flight of Tap Social’s beers at the bar with a four course dinner taking place on the brewery’s mezzanine. Feel free to stick around for drinks afterwards; the bar will be open until 10.30pm.

The brewery will be completely closed to the public and there will be a mix of seasoned naturists and have-a-go first timers, creating an informal, comfortable atmosphere within which to enjoy a Michelin-quality dinner from Native’s chef Chris Godfrey (currently undecided if he is stripping off or not), in the nude, in a brewery. Dinner is £25 per person. nakedoxford.wixsite.com
