    don't know really. but I've been to The Clifton, the one mentioned in the Goldney book. It's really nice and the food is amazing. and I've been to some place in the triangle, can't remember it's name though. :\

    My friend at Bristol said Goldney is really near the Corrie Tap (or sth?) and that it's an absolutely AMAZING student pub where everyone knows everyone! Sounds good!

    ps u best also b not too posh


    Why can't people understand that one goes to university to broaden one's horizons, to mix with new types of people. (Yes, ironic use of 'one' :rolleyes: )

    Whether somebody's supposedly 'posh' (or not as the case may be) is irrelevant - you just have to see everybody as your prospective new best friend, confidante and/or roommate. Otherwise, you run the risk of alienating the people around you, or worst case scenario, yourself.

    All us soon-to-be Bristolians are lovely, irrespective of upbringing and educational background


    Note: I'd advise against using text-speak on TSR - some people find it hugely offensive and are likely to be insistent... :p:

    I applied for Wills first choice, and Badock second. They were the only two that had space for my harp and promised me a car parking space. Fingers crossed for Wills though - it's sooo purdy, plus I rather fancy doing bat impressions down the corridoors in a black formal gown

    Badock have offered me their disabled suite as well, as it's the only room they have that's suitable for a 6 foot tall concert harp! Worried that it could be a little isolated though

    Haven't heard anything yet though, so hoping something comes in the post for me tomorrow

    Re the posh argument - it really pi**es me off as well, just hate it when people say 'I hate posh people,' equally when people say 'I hate common people.' I mean, ffs... We're all human (most of us, anyway :p: )Rant over :p:
