Royal Holloway Campus

Friday, February 11th, 2011

Royal Holloway campus offers a range of fantastic outlets serving a wide selection of foods and drinks. Here’s a few of them:

Founders – for freshly prepared hot meals (Open for Breakfast 8:00-10:00am, Lunch 12:00pm-2:00pm and Dinner 5:30pm-7.30pm).
Café Jules – for a wide selection of baguettes, cakes and coffees ( Open 8:30am-5:30pm).
The Hub – a wide selection of hot meals including authentic stir-fries and burgers and salad bar (Open Monday to Friday 7:30am-9-30pm).

(You can see all the other food and drink outlets on the RHUL website – there’s loads more!)

My ideal meal would be a trip to the fantastic Hub – now I am not usually the biggest fan of oriental cuisine, but the chicken noodle soup is something to die for, or at least drive 300 miles for. Comprising of a sizzling breast of chicken, enriched with all the flavours of Eastern cookery, carved up in front of you and served in a light, delicate Miso noodle soup, perfectly complemented with a bit of tongue tingling chilli sauce.

I must say, I have had this dish once or twice while feeling a bit under the weather and each time it seems to have had some fantastic restorative effect. For a refreshing, palate cleansing and healthy treat, why not head down to the newly opened “Imagine” for a tub of green tea frozen yoghurt.

If you are taking a break from study, why not head on down to the Store On Campus. Not only do they stock a huge range of sandwiches, snacks and crisps, but also a fantastic selection of wines and beers.

Any student would give their right arm to have some of the outlets available to students at Royal Holloway, so get out their and use them!

Kat on Kampus

Sheffield University has some wonderful places to eat out at on campus. I had a great day sampling some of the wonderful food (and drink!) across campus. I have to say out of all the places we went, the international food court was the absolute winner hands down, what a fantastic initiative! I had a chicken fajita which was enormous and kept me going throughout the shoot and also a portion of nachos smothered in sour cream, guacamole and salsa! Never knew student food could be so good!

I would recommend the University arms to any one wanting that first pint after a long day in the library, the atmosphere is brilliant and the staff very friendly (not to mention their huge range of beers and ciders)

When it comes to style, there is nowhere quite like the edge café and some of the pizza’s and pastries being knocked out of the kitchen looked fantastic!

Just want to say a big thanks to all the staff who made my day soooo tasty and would encourage anyone reading this to get out and try for yourself!
