12 Places Every University of Stirling Student Needs To Eat At In 2017
So many yummy options 😍😍😍
1. The Kilted Kangaroo
Hailed as “Scotland’s favourite Australian Themed Bar & Grill House”, The Kilted Kangaroo has always been a hit with students. It is worth visiting to try out their nachos, which may just be, in my opinion, the best in Stirling.
2. The Boozy Cow
The Boozy Cow may have only come to Stirling in September, but it’s already got plenty of people talking about it. With towering burgers, loaded hot dogs and cake-topped milkshakes, their food is the ultimate hangover cure. The graffiti-covered walls and neon signs also give the place a great atmosphere.
3. Jam Jar
It’s a little on the pricey side, but you could always convince your parents to take you to this restaurant in nearby Bridge of Allan when they come to visit. It has a homey feel and is the perfect place to go for a spot of lunch. If you’re feeling brave you could try their Nutella pizza, which is as good as it sounds.
4. The Ground House
The Ground House is an intimate little cafe in the heart of the city – perfect for a spot of people watching after a long day of being on your feet. As well as serving yummy paninis, sandwiches and iced coffees, they also showcase some of the best local talent by hosting regular live music sessions. What could be better than relaxing after a long week of lectures by listening to great music with equally great coffee?
This cafe is the place to go in Stirling when you want an amazing breakfast. It may be small, but it is always packed full and definitely worth the the short wait for a table. They have a huge menu with various gluten free items, so there is guaranteed to be something on there for everyone – including french toast with fresh fruit and yoghurt and avocado toast with chilli mayonnaise. Is your mouth watering yet?
6. Gabe’s Diner
Gabe’s Diner may look slightly underwhelming from the outside, but don’t judge a book by its cover. They’re open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and serve everything from Thai beef and fillet steak sandwiches to a variety of homebakes. So next time you’re thinking about going to nearby Frankie & Benny’s or Nando’s, try out this place instead and I can guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
7. Monterey Jack’s
Monterey Jack’s has made a name for itself for being one of the best places to go for a burger in Stirling, and when you try one for yourself you’ll see why. Their cocktails, served in a milk bottle, are also only £4 – so they’re both delicious and student budget-friendly!
8. The Burgh Coffeehouse
One of Stirling’s many coffee shops, The Burgh Coffeehouse is conveniently located just outside of The Thistles shopping centre and serves an impressive selection of sandwiches, wraps and paninis. It is also canine-friendly if you are out walking your dog and fancy stopping for a morning coffee.
9. The Bluebell Tearoom
As well as being very Instagram-worthy, this place serves the best afternoon tea in Stirling. They offer a huge range of loose-leaf teas and they even come with a timer to help you make the perfect cup of tea. They also serve soup, sandwiches, toasties and loads of cakes guaranteed to satisfy your sweet tooth.
10. The Fat Cyclist
The Fat Cyclist is a cafe with quirky decor and food to match. With lots of comfy sofas and a wide range of smoothies and milkshakes, it’s an ideal place to sit and relax after a busy day.
11. Green Gates
Green Gates has earned its place as one of the best Indian restaurants in central Scotland. It is set apart from others in the area by its authentic decor and food and, although it is always busy, the food is definitely worth the wait.
12. And finally, Flip N’ Shake
This place does exactly what its name suggests: it’s all about ice-cream, pancakes and milkshakes. It’s located next to the cinema for that perfect post-movie treat.
