  1. What are the meals like i basic training i know people say shite but what shite are u getting
  2. Sorry they're not Michelin Star meals for ya

  3. I've been told recently they are quite good, although not too hot if you use room service.
    On Monday for dinner they give you brown stew,
    And on Tuesday again for a treat,
    You get stew so often the lads all thank Christ,
    There's only seven days in the week.
    They call it brown stew,or stew a-la brown,
    There's all fancy names for the stuff,
    It would be far more honest to say that brown stew,
    Was stew that was Bloody browned off.

    Boys have you any complaints? :D :wink:
  4. It's pussers hard tack, weevils are extra.
  5. Windmill pie, if it's going round you'll get some

    Weightwaters have booked for a summer course. So its best you hit Micky D's and KFC before you put tom sauce to napkin.
  7. im not expecting michellin star quality, i just wondered what food is available and how many sittings, as my diet at the minute consits of 6 meals a day mainly lean protein dishes chicken and alot of fish and i want to be able to adapt my diet to one more like what ill be eating i phase 1.

    so can ayone post a decent answer then ???
  8. You'll probably only have to put up with it for a few days. The payd at Raleigh is good, remember there are naval chefs at Raleigh as well as on this forum, they do a good job considering what they have to work with, a little more tact will serve you well...
  9. what food do they have to work with
  10. What on earth are you gibbering about?

    Food food, that's what food.
  11. You eat it or don't
  12. The new entries aren't on PAYD smeeg. They have to be force fed 'proper' meals during Phase I and have the old food charges against their pay.

    Agree though - in my opinion PAYD is good value.
  13. no shit ay, but what is the food they serve up ?????

    please no stupid answers im just looking for an extra insight into when i start at raleigh ive heard enough of the poor banter and wit on here
  14. From my experiences of working in messes they're capable of working nothing short of miracles with very little on offer. Also learnt the valuable lesson of how to make potato wine, lovely stuff :/

    If what I have been told....

    "All specialist diets are catered for, wherever possible however whilst vegan, halal, kosher and vegetarian diets are faily widespread there is no categoric guarantee it can always be provided. The issue for vegans is taking-on a sufficiently balanced calorific intake during the more arduous elements of basic training and on operations."

    ...is true, then you have nothing to worry about. I'm pretty sure they're quite deft at making sure people are fed enough of the good stuff.

    You could always write to them in advance of you arrival with your dietary requirements. I'm sure they won't tag you a fussy bastard and spit in your meal, but the RN struggles to embrace anyone who does'nt like cheesy hamy's.
  16. What? You don't get pay as you dine until after phase1... Unfortunately, you'll be putting up with terrible food for 9 weeks.

    The food is high carb stuff, designed to sustain you through long hours. There are 3 sittings a day.
  17. Two choices then put up with it or don't join as it's the same poor banter and wit in the mob.
  18. God's lunch!
  19. Listen you stroppy little shit, you get what's on the menu. It varies but is a generally well-balanced diet.

    What do you want, a print out of the menu for the next six months?

    Eat it or starve.
  20. I had cheesy hammy eggies 3 times at Raleigh. Mucho disappointed in the lack of them.

    where's my O2 tag gone?
