This is probably obvious but is it possible to eat some of your meals at colleges like Merton and Lincoln which are supposed to have great food? (Provided you pay of course.)
wow oh man who's the daddy now
yeh, when i stay on for interviews next year, well, i wonder how many halls one can do in two weeks... need to find a partner in crime tho...
I just ate at Lincoln. Every single night. And I liked it. Yeah.
The meals at Wadham were ok, breakfasts and lunch's were v. good. As for evening meal it was tasty enough, though there wasn't enough of it. Quantity not quality, that's what I always say!
There was one night where I had this gorgous chocolate cake at Wadham, it was delicious. Food at St. Peters was ok.
the lincoln chocolate cakes were so so gooood
*thinks longingly of cake*
Teddy Hall had pretty shocking food, but its OK, my best mate got into Lincoln, so I'll be over at his all the time!
All this goes to show you should have applied to Lincoln. The two different types of chocolate cake were both fantastic, the peach melba was delicious, the eves pudding again was mouth watering. The main courses were great, too.
And on top of all that, you'd have all the cool lincoln people to hang out with!
Lincoln food isn't all that great! Basically, we have exactly the same food for first hall and formal hall (which is every night)....so.....our normal hall is 3courses and is way better than most normal halls at other colleges - it's not greasy fried food and is supposedly the healthiest of all the colleges. However, our formal hall is therefore very poor compared to most other colleges that put on special food for formal!
Regarding eating at other colleges, it's only possible if you have a friend who invites you or you get invited on a crew date. My little summary of halls I've been too:
Lincoln - like I said above. Normal hall good (guests can come), formal hall poor compared to others
Hertford - Good formal hall
Univ - Again good formal hall, although they say a grace at the end as well as beginning!
Queen's - I've only been to an MCR Guest Night, and the food was fairly good, but I didn't enjoy it as much as some others
BNC - Poor for formal hall. Very odd combination of food - breadcrumb coated chicken kiev with pasta!!! Again, has similar system to Lincoln I believe
New - Only ate their during interviews....food seemed generally quite fried. Can't comment on Formal hall
Mansfield - best formal hall I've been to (been twice and both occaisions lovely). Strange atmosphere though - small and quite bright hall, doesn't have same atmosphere as others, but food is very good!
I think that's the only colleges I've eaten at, but I may have lost count! lol
