Re: [edlug] Feedback on a possible venue...

Having been in halls last year I can elaborate on the food.

Microwaved (cheese)burger
microwaved pizza
Microwaved hotdog


Tasty if you like that sort of thing, and room service of any sort is not to be sniffed at, but a definite leap backwards from The Standing Order.

Not the most friendly of venues, and not the most attractive of halls. Bit like being in a large barn-dance without any possible fun.

The Junction on East Preston Street does food, although their menu has retreated a little recently, as well as all the associated drinks. So do the Scream pubs, Tron and Crags, both of which are used to large groups, especially the Crags. The Crags will provide free sandwiches to large groups if preorganised and comes with parking, although can be noisy and a little smokey, but not that bad, and the Tron has areas that could easily be separated for us.

The number of pubs offering good cheap food is fairly limited though.
