    Why do some places charge staff more? Seems a bit odd, if they are the same portion sizes?

    Staff get charged VAT, students don't.

    That's extra. A spoonful and a half of Colseslaw was 43p!

    Our menu looks ace on paper too, but this is the the reality. The canteen staff are ace though and do sort me out where they can and they are well understaffed.

    Our canteen has the option of good stuff but it has the usual chips and burgers too. The trouble is, the kids don't want the good stuff and always go for the chips and burgers. When the chips and burgers are withdrawn they don't buy food from the canteen. The catering manager here hates that she has to serve crap but she's damned if she does and she's damned if she doesn't.

    This was todays lunch. Stir Fry. I had to add the potatoes as an extra for obvious reasons. Please note: My hand is actually resting on the plate for scale. It's not brought forward to make my din dins looks small!
