Eating Options for Friday 6th July

As people arrive at all sorts of times on the Friday we do not provide any food that night.  Here is some information that might help you, whether you are a newcomer or an old hand.

The Italian restaurant and chip shop at the foot of the hill is closed for its summer break. So what are the alternatives?

The William Wallace, the pub at the foot of the hill, is currently looking for a chef and so it is hard to say if they will be serving food or not. I wil try and update this nearer the time, if possible.

However there is a new place just to the right on the main road as you leave the university main entrance. This is The Meadowpark Pub and Kitchen. Aileen and I had a lunch there last week and it was very nice. They serve food until 10pm on Fridays but advised that booking would be a good idea.

If you go straight through the roundabout at the foot of the hill and go along the 3rd road on the right, Easter Cornton Road, you will find The Birds and Bees, which some of our people have used in the past and found to be good. It’s about a 10-15 minute walk from Spittal Hill and is a gastropub pub serving steaks and a British pub menu.
