When starting to explore the city it can be hard to know where to begin. The LCR has a lot going for it but as Freshers Week draws to an end the time has come to start exploring all Norwich has to offer. So as a seasoned Norwich drinker I have decided to offer up some help. Remember those Goosebumps books you read as a child? The ones which allow you to decide the plot, depending on what page you choose to turn to? This guide is kind of like that. Imagine you’re on a night out, at each step you will be asked a question about what you want to do and the kind of night you would like to have? From chilling in a bar to clubbing, no matter what your budget I should have you covered! So off you go on your drunken journey, have a drink on me. Continue reading The Guide to a Norwich Night out

I love to make these homemade pies. It’s a very simple recipe which produces multiple meals and can be altered with your choice of either a white or gravy sauce. You can also freeze the pies for a convenient meal that can be bunged in the oven at a later date.

Why does everything have mushrooms in it?
These questions probably occur to all people on a meatless diet at some point in their lives but, luckily, Norwich is a great place for those of us more restricted students and they won’t break the bank!
