One thing I think is really important to have is the opening and closing times of places around the campus. Some do display it around their area but I’ve found these aren’t always accurate and they are subject to change. So I did some research and asking around today and got some information about the wonderful places to grab food or drink at Edge Hill – more specifically (because there are so many) we’re going to look at The Hub today!
The Hub is found right in the center of the campus, attached to the back of the main building. It can get fairly busy at times as it holds some popular places to eat and drink.
McColl’s is the local express shop for the campus. They also cook and serve hot food in the mornings like sausage/bacon barms, hot dogs, slices of pizzas.
Mon – Sun: 7.30am – 11pm
Starbucks is the reason The Hub is quite busy in the mornings. Who doesn’t love a Starbucks? The ladies there are really friendly too and if you bring your own cup you can get money off your drink!
Mon – Fri: 7.30am – 6.30pm
Sat – Sun: 1pm – 5pm
(However, on Applicant Visit Days – they are open from 8am!)
Grab and Go is a lovely little sandwich parlour where you can grab a pre-packaged sandwich, drink and snack for a £2.95 meal deal. Or you can opt for a freshly made ‘subway-like’ sandwich, which is also included in the meal deal and these start at £1.40 (on their own) – which is amazing! They also have paninis, pies, salad boxes, confectionery, drinks and sometimes pizza in the afternoon!
Mon – Fri: 10am – 5pm
Closed at weekends
Sages is a hot food canteen with some lovely meal choices. It’s open in the morning for breakfast but also serve lunch and dinner. I’ll insert a little menu from this week but be aware that this changes!
Mon – Fri: 7.30am – 2.30pm then 5pm – 9pm
Sat – Sun: 10.30am – 1pm then 5pm – 9pm
My favourite thing during the week The Hub holds little pop up market vendors with various street food, sweet treats and other little bits and bobs. There’s always something going on in The Hub and I love that about it!
Wow. Is anyone else hungry? I am.
I hope this helps to show how many amazing places there are to eat and drink at Edge Hill – and that’s only The Hub! There’s many more around campus and we’ll get to that soon ☺️ – thanks for reading! Please feel free to comment if you have any questions.
