With students living on a budget, a traditional McDonalds or Burger King is usually on the menu, but there is a variety of top cuisine on offer in Nottingham.
From Peachykeens to Red Hot there is a wide variety of food for students to try out but is it the cost that prevents a regular appearance to such places.
Emma Smyth, a 20-year-old fashion student at Nottingham Trent University said: “I must say I go out to restaurants every week and I cannot afford to do that anymore.
“But it’s almost impossible not to go out with good student deals on offer.”
One place with good student offers is Red Hot located just round the back of the Cornerhouse next to Tamatanga.
Red Hot currently offer 20% of all food and drink from Monday to Thursday for student card holders.
Charlie Truman, manager of Red Hot said: “As we are so close to the university we get more passing trade especially with our student offers.
“We offer better student deals than Peachy Keens as they only offer 10% and we see them as our rivals in terms of restaurant buffets.”
Red Hot not only offer deals for the restaurant in Nottingham but across the brand too, with franchises in Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, Milton Keynes and Leicester this means the whole student nation can receive such fabulous deals.
She added: “We promote all our offers through social media, on our website and also through the Cornerhouse.
“Should anyone ask us anything on Facebook we aim to respond to their query.”
However it’s not only restaurants that get the student’s bellies grumbling, with special deals at pubs such as ‘two for Tuesday’ at Spanky Van Dykes it allows students to get even more value for their money.
Tom Ryan, a 19-year-old politics student at University of Nottingham said: “There is a wide variety of restaurants and pubs in Nottingham which cater for everyone’s needs.
“However my personal favourite has to be the offer at Spankys, I can get myself two burgers at a more than affordable price.”
Going out doesn’t interest everybody though due to the cost of eating at a restaurant despite the deals on offer.
Roland Tomlinson, 22-year-old mathematics student at Nottingham Trent University said: “I’m not really bothered about going out to eat.
“I prefer to stay in and cook for myself despite the student deals on offer.”
