School Meals


Pabulum provide the catering services at The London Nautical School. Pabulum’s Vision is to be at the forefront of improving the next generation’s health and well-being, by shaping the food culture in education that inspires a passion and love of fresh food – without compromise.

Pabulum were awarded ‘Education Caterer of the Year’ at the Foodservice Cateys. This is regarded as the “Oscars” of the catering industry.

We feel so strongly about educating the younger generation on healthy eating by providing fresh and wholesome food, as it's through a balanced diet and healthy food choices that students can maintain higher classroom concentration levels.  94% of our food is freshly prepared in The London Nautical School kitchen and 75% of the food is British and locally sourced. 

At The London Nautical School we have a dedicated Pabulum team led by Dean Raggett, Catering Manager. Dean and his team provide fresh food through the provision of morning break and lunch service.

At morning break you can expect to see a range of wraps, filled baguettes and bloomer bread sandwiches accompanied by fresh fruit and homemade yoghurt. There is always a wide variety of options for lunch service including a variety of freshly prepared main meals and tasty vegetarian alternatives, with a range of hot and chilled grab and go products, and our extensive street food offer.

The menus are available on line at
