As a student, you’re likely to be on a tight budget. But that doesn’t mean you get to have no treats in life! Eating out is a really nice way to socialise, especially if you or some of your friends/flatmates don’t drink so don’t want to go to pubs, clubs and bars. Low-end restaurants are often a much more budget friendly way to go out to eat as a student, but it doesn’t mean compromising on taste and service: so we’ve pulled together a list of some of the best budget restaurants in Gloucester!
If you want classic pub grub in a warm and welcoming traditional British pub, then you can’t go far wrong – every single review of this place mentions how lovely the staff are, how tasty the food is and how fun the patrons are. It’s located on London Road, around a 20 minute walk away from our Blackfriars Residence, and it won’t cost you too much to get a decent dinner here.
For no-frills food around 15 minutes away from Blackfriars (on foot), head to this little cafe located at Eastgate Market. They do breakfast as well as a range of sandwiches, burgers, jacket potatoes and so on – typical British cafe food, but cooked really well and for a fair price. You can’t get much better than that!
Located on Southgate Street, My Treats is roughly a 15 minute walk from Blackfriars. If there’s one phrase everyone uses to sum this place up, it’s good value for money. And as a student, this is exactly what you want! The food is also delicious and the service is good, so it’s a great all rounder when it comes to the best budget restaurants in Gloucester.
This is a family-run Thai restaurant located just near Gloucester Cathedral – making it a 20 minute walk from our Blackfriars Residence. It is often hailed as one of the best budget restaurants in Gloucester, and it is also 100% gluten free! This is great if you or any of your flatmates struggle to find somewhere to eat that fits with your dietary requirements. From nibbles to curries to scrumptious sides with veggie and vegan options too, this place is a fantastic all-rounder and won’t break the bank either.
