My top student meals

If you’re thinking about going to uni, probably one of the biggest worries on your mind is cooking for yourself. Below, with the help of my friends, I have compiled some suggestions for what you can eat next year!

It’s also best to be aware that we have quite a few places to shop from in Ormskirk. Aldi and Morrison’s are the two biggest supermarkets, located about a 15 minute walk from halls. However, you can also get a delivery from Tesco, who now do a specific delivery for Edge Hill students one day a week; they come on to campus. You can also get an Asda delivery, if you’re willing to pick it up from the main gate. If you have a car, you’re in an even better position, as you can drive to the nearest Asda, if you prefer.

Don’t forget the little shops either! Places like Home Bargains, Poundland and B&M do also sell cheap food, although it’s perhaps better to get your tins and packets from these places.

  • Pasta and mayo
  • Super Noodles¬†(Cheapest in Home Bargains)

      • Little Italy
      • Brewsterz
  • Restaurants
    • Shake Shack does really nice breakfast dishes, and can be found on JustEat
    • Morrison’s breakfast is particularly good after a night out
    • Cobble is good for lunch or afternoon tea
    • Love to Eat is fast becoming my favourite little coffee shop, although I have also eaten breakfast here, which was yummy!

Remember, you don’t have to completely rule out the more expensive foods; it is important to treat yourself every now and again!
