    Hello,

    I was wondering how's the food like at NTU? Are there a lot of restaurants close to the school open late? What about the food on campus? Are those open late, affordable and good? I want to do as little cooking as possible and won't have enough time to prepare meals all the time, not that I cannot.

    Hi Coolsbreeze,

    Can I ask - which campus will you be studying on? As each campus has a different number/variety of food outlets in and around that campus.

    We have a fantastic food outlets (called Taste) on all of our sites. I'll leave you a link to the page below with the menus for each campus, times they are open for and what type of food they sell:

    Campus catering

    Personally, I have used these taste cafe's quite a bit in the past during lunchtime (I personally recommend Taste Bonington if you are on the city site as they have very nice homemade soup and pastries in there). and they all have a good variety and are quite cheap.

    We also have our SU restaurants (the Point at Clifton and the Landing on City site) that serves hot food, which is really nice and really cheap (which is good if you are on a budget.) They are also open until early evening for food as well. I'll leave a PDF of the menu below:

    The Landing/The Point menu

    I hope this has helped a bit, but if you want to know more about the restaurants in the city centre of Nottingham, just let me know .

    Thanks,

    Ellen

    Hi Coolsbreeze,

    Yes there is quite a few good food places, just off of the campus. There are two pubs that serve food & drink throughout the day just outside our Newton Building called the Horn in Hand and Spanky Van Dykes, which have some good deals on and sell relatively cheap food:

    Spanky Van Dykes (food served until 10 pm)

    Horn in Hand (I couldn't find how long they serve food until, but I believe it is late)

    There is also a Wetherspoon called The Gooseberry Bush next to the student accommodation which is very popular with the students:

    The Gooseberry Bush

    We also have loads of places to eat in the city centre of Nottingham. Our city site is about 5 walk into the middle of the city centre, and there are places like Subway, Barburrito, McDonalds, KFC, Greggs etc. So plenty of cheap places to get snacks/lunch.

    I would also personally recommend a pizza place called Inferno. They do 'create your own' 11' pizza's for £7.95. It is a bit like Subway, where you can choose a sauce and as many cheeses, vegetables and meat as you would like. I'll link it below:

    Inferno Pizza

    I hope this helps, but if you have any more questions please just let me know.

    Thanks,

    Ellen

    Thank you for the detailed list. What large grocery stores, that sells everything, are located near NTU? I am an international student so I'm not familiar with all the big chain grocery stores in the UK.

    Hi Coolsbreeze,

    We have quite a few supermarkets in and around Nottingham. However, I think most biggest ones near the city site are the Tesco Metro in the Victoria Centre (which is the shopping centre in Nottingham) and the Aldi which is just on the other side of the Victoria centre. Both are no more than 5/10 minute walks max.

    Alternatively, if you wanted to do a big grocery shop and not have to carry it all back from the supermarket, some of the bigger supermarkets will deliver to your flat. Personally, I find this easier and you are more likely to get cheaper deals. The supermarkets I would recommend if you do decide this is something you would like to do would be Asda or Tesco.

    I hope this helps, and let me know if you have any more questions!

    Thanks,

    Ellen
