The Ram is the Students’ Guild’s main bar on campus. With a traditional feel, this watering hole offers a wide range of very reasonably priced beverages. It’s a hive of summer activity, with its beer garden home to events such as the Summer Festival. It’s the perfect place to relax after your lectures, or the stress of exams later in the year. The Ram also plays host to ‘Ram Jam’, a regular music event where you literally can turn up and play, as well as theme nights, quizzes, and pool table.

The Lemon Grove during the day, is a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in which you can meet up with friends and chill out. Fitted with several plasma screens, it’s also the best place to catch the latest sporting action and popular daytime TV. In addition to quizzes and the weekly Open Mic night, the Lemon Grove also puts on poker afternoons. It’s also home to the Lemmy club night, as well as concerts.
