Food at Forum
If your accommodation is indoors and catered, then your meals are provided. At midday, collect a packed lunch from your dining room and take it wherever you want.
Top tip: If you’re limited in your cooking ability, pair up, ask your neighbours. They’ll be friendly!
Where can I buy food?
If you're planning to cook throughout the week, check out our simple self-catering guide and menu plan for Forum.
There are also food van options onsite every day offering quick and easy meals (lunchtime and evening), so take a night off from cooking over the camping stove and enjoy some tasty wood-fired pizza, piadina or fish and chips! Check out the full menu here. Please note: fish & chips is cash-only.
There are food outlets within a gentle stroll in Weston Rhyn (Wong Wong Fish & Chips/Chinese, The Lodge Indian or Weston Rhyn Stores). You can hop in a car and find supermarkets (Co-op in Chirk, Stan’s Superstore in St Martins, Morrison’s and Sainsbury’s in Oswestry, or Tesco and Asda in Wrexham), pubs (The Poacher’s Pocket has good deals), cafés (Moreton Park Garden Centre has nice cakes), and even McDonald’s on the A5 towards Wrexham. There’s a BP service station by the traffic island on the A5 turning to Quinta.
There is a freezer available to refreeze ice-packs for cool bags or ice boxes. Look for the signs.
Top tip: Forum does not have a cash machine on-site, so bring appropriate funds for food, visits to the Forum Bookshop and an offering for international student ministry on Thursday evening.
