Because it has catered residence status, full kitchen facilities are not provided in the accommodation areas at Badock Hall. Each floor has a small room suitable for the preparation of light snacks and drinks. This is the pantry or tea room.
These areas are not intended to be used as full kitchens and therefore are equipped with a larder fridge, microwave, a toaster and kettle. Students are asked not to bring other items of electrical cooking equipment to the Hall apart from their own kettle, which should be used only in the pantry. The pantry is designed for snack preparation only and not for the preparation of full meals.
The Hall catering team provide a breakfast each day and a hot meal every weekday evening, also brunch on Saturday and Bank Holiday Monday. During term time a full roast meal is on offer every Sunday lunchtime.
Lunches are not provided at Badock Hall during the working week, however close at hand is the Source Cafe at Hiatt Baker Hall where reasonably prices snacks and sandwiches may be purchased. At the foot of Stoke Hill, a short walk from Badock Hall, is a rank of small shops that will provide most needs for those who wish to purchase snacks and drinks. We encourage our residents to support these local traders.
If bulk shopping is required the major supermarket chains have outlets about 1 mile from the Hall both on Whiteladies Road, in Henleaze and Westbury on Trym. The larger supermarkets are approximately a 20 minute walk away.
The student pantry facility comes into its own on Saturday and Sunday evenings for those who wish to prepare a light meal.
No catering is provided in Hall during vacation periods, unless ordered and paid for in advance of the start of the vacation period.
All residents are required to show their Badock identity card when coming to collect a meal. Anyone without a card is considered a visitor and will be charged £4 for each meal.
If an identity card is lost, a replacement may be obtained from the Hall Office at a cost of £5 per card.
