Civic House Kitchen is a public canteen for Speirs Locks.

It’s open over lunchtimes, serving a single dish cooked on the day.

A simple format allows the chefs to put time and effort into the food but still keep the price low.

Lunch costs £5 and refillable teas and coffees are £1.50. Check our daily dish on our Instagram OR just drop in.

All the food served is vegan (without meat, fish, eggs or dairy.)




We prepare a new dish each morning and serve it that day.

Previous examples include:
Tahini ramen
Leek dumplings with tomato and lentil sauce, yoghurt and herbs
String hoppers with coconut chutney and jackfruit curry
Dried lime noodle soup with tahini

Filo parcels with spinach and sumac
Stuffed vegetable rotis

Running alongside our lunch service we offer a variety of food events, cooking workshops and parties.

Our events include:

  • practical skills workshops exploring ingredients, recipes, processes and skills
  • preparing collaborative, collective dinners
  • Workshops that explore innovative techniques in urban food production and how to produce and consume local, seasonal produce
  • Host a related programme of talks, film screening and discussions about local food growing
