Hi, I'm a current chadsian.
I personally don't have any problem regarding meal times since you have all the time you want to go and eat, the only problem might be only on formals since dinner finishes early. On normal days this is the meal times:
Breakfast: 8.00 – 10.00 am
Lunch: 11.45 – 1.30pm
Dinner: 5.30 – 7.30pm
during formals, early tea finishes at 6.30
You can always ask for a late dinner or a packed lunch if you fear you can't make it.
Food, in general, is alright, you always have 2 meat/fish options and at least a vegetarian. Personally, I don't really like the food mainly because I'm not used to it since I'm Italian, but all my British friends say it's good.
Unfortunately, kitchens vary massively from building to building, some are really big and spacious others are quite small. but I think all buildings have at least a hob, a stove and a fridge
This year some people live in a self-catered accommodation but I fear next year they want all freshers to live in catered accommodations
