Eating Out

Loughborough University has its fare share of places to eat on a budget. The Gallery Cafe is open from 09:00 to 15:00 during the weekdays and makes money by selling the artwork on display rather than making a profit from food. The Linford Restaurant offers a choice of five main meals each day, but the choice is limited when it comes to Halal, Kosher or vegetarian meals. There are other cafeterias on campus, but again choice is limited.

Further afield international students can get a cut-price curry at Koh-i-Noor Balti, which is a 100 per cent Halal restaurant and take-away situated near the train station. For Chinese meals under £5 visit Mr Chan’s on Bedford Square. Yum Yum Thai Restaurant on High Street is recommended by other students as well as Mario’s which runs cut-price pizza and burger meal deals from Swan Street. Forest Gate serves an English carvery for £5 and is close to campus on Forest Road, while Cactus Cafe advertises inexpensive Mexican meals. Despite the size of the town, international students who look far enough will find Loughborough is full of flavours from all over the world.
