Hope you are all enjoying the summer, the nice weather has finally made a reappearance which is always good news.
This week I’m going to talk about the places in Ormskirk where you can go to satisfy those sugar cravings or have a nice study-break cup of coffee.
Being able to go out for food and drink once in a while is always a good change, and there are plenty of places to choose from.
If coffee is your go-to drink then there’s good news. Ormskirk town centre has both a Starbucks and a Costa, so you’re guaranteed to be able to get your caffeine hit. Plus the Hub on campus has a coffee bar that serves Starbucks coffee, so you can always grab a cup before a lecture to help you power through the day.
There’s also a Mcdonalds within 15 minutes walk of the campus, so if you have a fast food craving you don’t have to go too far out of your way. Ormskirk also boasts a lot of local takeaways and even has a Domino’s if all you need is an amazingly tasty pizza.
Staffords Fish and Chips is a place I would highly recommend to anyone in Ormskirk, the staff are really friendly and you can choose to eat in or takeaway. It’s a really great fish and chip shop and the restaurant part is so cute (although a bit cosy!)
One of the great things about small towns is the number of quaint cafes you can find, Ormskirk is no exception. I would give some recommendations here, but I think it’s much better to go out and try the cafes yourself, I guarantee you will find one that you absolutely love and visit again and again throughout the year.
Having said that, Cobble is the number one place to visit in town, and I suggest you go there as soon as possible because you’ll want to return here over, and over, again. Cobble make the best milkshakes in Ormskirk, and probably have every flavour combination you can imagine (and even some you’ve never thought of.) Its food menu is pretty good too and its a great place to go when you want to impress visiting friends or family, for a celebration or if you just feel like indulging.
These are just a few of the places you can check out, but there is so much more Ormskirk has to offer.
The best thing to do is to explore the town centre and see what you can find. Ormskirk has a lot of hidden gems and there’s definitely something for everyone.
Now go whet your appetite!
