17 Places Every Loughborough Student Needs To Eat and Drink In 2017
Loughborough – it’s a tiny little town with a surprising amount of great places to eat and drink. Here are 17 places you MUST go if you’re still in the bubble this year:
1. John Cooper’s Bar
John Cooper’s Bar helped us significantly with the mourning of JCs with its student-friendly priced menu and loads of stuff to choose from. Plus the bar stocks lots of fancy ciders, beer and everything else you’d need.
2. The Paget Arms
The classic port-of-call for all the Student Triangle dwellers. Plus it’s cosy, has regular open-mic nights and, best of all, allows dogs!
3. PETER Pizzeria
You simply aren’t a Loughborough student if you’ve never had a PETER’s pizza – and it’s probably the most well decorated restaurant in town. Oh, and they serve your receipt in a toy dinosaur, if that wasn’t enough to convince you to go.
4. The Griffin
After its makeover, new menu and the central location, The Griffin is a great meeting point for some food and/or casual drinks.
5. Wild Lime
After the heartbreak of losing Brooklyn Bar Mondays, Wild Lime has kindly replaced it with amazing drinks deals and an excuse to go out on the first day of the week again/watch the footy with a pint during the day.
Hands-down the cheapest place for Jägerbombs in town.
Who can resist an XO Thursdays? Or the half price grub on Mondays? And the 2-4-1 cocktails? Not me.
FINALLY Lough students can get a Cheeky Nando’s. 🙌
9. Bella Italia
Italian food + swanky new décor = 👌
10. Pizza Express
There’s no pizza shortage in Loughborough, but we definitely aren’t complaining.
11. The Phantom
If you want somewhere with great food deals that’s also ideal for Echo’s pres, this is the place.
12. Thai Grand
Nothing satisfies a Thai craving more than a classic Thai Grand dinner.
Today me and M have been together 4 years 💖 To celebrate we had our first evening away from Willow, going out for a meal whilst Willow had a couple of hours with her Nana. We went to a local restaurant, Thai Grand in Loughborough, and boy were we impressed 😍 I would even go so far as to say its the best food I've ever had in Loughborough 👌 (and yes, I was a bag of nerves away from Willow, as whenever I have been away from her M has been with her 🙈 Thankfully she behaved and slept two hours we were gone, which felt like a lifetime!)
Think you’ve died and gone to heaven? You’re probably in Dolcino.
What other place can you name that lets you take a pizza into the movies with you AND that has a mad student discount?!
15. The Kelso
Probably one of the classiest places to go for a drink in Loughborough with unique cocktails and a swanky rooftop bar.
16. The Orange Tree
The Kelso’s next door neighbour is also a more up-market place to for food and drinks.
17. Brown’s Lane
And finally, Brown’s is a much fancier place you might want to strategically go to when your parents next visit.
