Listening to students is what we do and we’ve made some great changes to your bar, Mooch.

We asked you what you liked about the Students’ Union bar, Mooch, and what we could do better and you told us!

Take at look at the new menu here.

Based on your feedback we’ve made some awesome changes and here they are:

Great Prices

The majority of students said they would pay £5 or £6 for a main meal, the average spend came out at £5.49. You’ll see the refreshed menu reflects or beats this - the majority of meals cost between £4 and £5. Only the sharing platters and the brand new Mooch Big Burger cost more.

Light Bites

4 out of 5 students said they wanted to see more light bites on the menu so we’ve added a new concept of tapas style ordering where the more dishes you order, the cheaper they become.  You’ve got your old favourite sides plus a few new options for you to order for yourself or to share with friends.


Almost 90% of students said they would be interested in specials, promos and meal deals.  We’ve taken this on board and we’ve put together a set of deals for the whole week including: half price pizza all day on Tuesdays; nachos and a 3 pint pitcher on Wednesday; and a full breakfast with tea for under £3 on Saturdays. 

Keep a look out on Facebook, Twitter and the SU website for regular voucher offers and news on upcoming specials.

Healthy Food

You said you wanted more, healthier alternatives and less chip-based meals so you’ve got more salads, a healthy platter on the sharing menu, and the introduction of fishcakes and more pasta-based meals - things which were popular feedback suggestions.

Pub Grub

You said you wanted typical and traditional pub grub so we’ve kept some of the old favourites and across the whole menu we’ve incorporated some of your specific suggestions like BLTs.  Curry was also a common request – so now you’ve got a curry served with rice and naan, which will change across the week to give you variety.

We hope you like the new look and menu and we’ll look forward to seeing you again and again.  Thank you to all the students who gave honest and constructive feedback, it really has made the difference. For those of you who were part of the prize draw, we’ll be in touch soon if you have won and to tell you how to claim your goodies.

Keep your eye out for more deals and amazing offers.
