People who work at Red Gate don't go hungry. Our onsite canteen, the SQL Servery, dishes up hot breakfasts and lunch for everyone every day. And it's all free. Here's what's on offer.

Breakfast (8.30am – 9.30am)

Lunch (12pm – 2pm)


We have a wide selection of breakfast cereals, juices, smoothies, yoghurts and fresh fruit which are all available all day long. We have fantastic coffee machines and almost 40 types of tea. There's also a vending machine for chocolate, crisps and fizzy drinks (the only food or drink that isn't free). There's usually plenty of birthday cake too.

Where does our food come from?

Our caterers source as much local produce as they possibly can. Our bread comes from a traditional Cambridgeshire baker and we source all our fresh fruit, vegetables and dairy products locally. Our meat comes from an East Anglian butcher who uses only locally farmed animals. All of the chicken on our menus is free range.

Special diets

If you have any special dietary requirements or allergies then Chris our chef will be more than happy to talk to you about the ingredients in his dishes or to make you something special.

Is there really such thing as a free lunch?

Yes! We have a large canteen space with long tables and lunchtimes are a buzz of activity. By eating together like this we all get to know each other a bit better and so we work better together too.
