    Hello,

    I didn't go catered however I know a few people who do and they find that £63 is definitely enough!
    The food is a mix and changes everyday! I eat their quite a bit and they serve most things from lasagne, stir fry, you can make your own baguettes, their are salads, chips, burgers, pasta, pizza, Pie etc! They also normally do a selection of cake, cookies, jelly and fresh fruit for desert!
    As long as you don't mind eating between specific hours it's not too bad at all!

    Both Windsor and Dunsden are pretty close to catering places, and both actually have a good social life! Windsor is closer to park bar which is where most people socialise in the evenings however it also depends on your flatmates!

    Have a look online, the pictures are quite accurate! Their is also a chance you might not get your first choice of accommodation so don't worry about halls too much!
