Uni Life

Eating (and Drinking) Your Way Through Newcastle

Looking to treat yourself to a nice meal or drink that isn’t going to cost you a pretty penny? Charlotte Lloyd gives us the rundown on some of the best deals around town.

As students, we all know the importance of seeking out the best deals on what nights and where. It has taken me far too long to become accustomed to it and to really take advantage of this in all its glory. However, the two years I’ve spent living on campus has taught me the importance of having a few deals up your sleeve when the thought of cooking is just too much to bear.

So, with that in mind, I have composed a list of all the places you, as a uni student, should be aware of for every night of the week.
