Food & Drink, On Campus

11th March 2020

The Sphinx Election Week Burger Special!

Students’ favourite eatery on campus, The Sphinx, are celebrating Election week in the best possible way; with election inspired named burgers!

The Sphinx, The Guild and student officers have implemented a collaborative way for students to get involved in election week whilst celebrating the important changes student officers have made and continue to do so on campus.

Student who are unsure of who to vote for can enjoy a bite to eat or drinks at the Sphinx whilst reading candidate manifestos and those who have voted can enjoy a rewarding meal.

The burger special is available until Friday 13th March (this is also when the voting for Student Officer ends!).

The specials include a meat and vegetarian/ vegan option.

This burger combo includes a double beef burger AND a spicy chicken burger along with a hash brown, onion rings, lettuce and salsa all packed in a brioche bun.

Vegetarian/ Vegan Option: Fossil Free (£8.50)
