I like the Mexican food.

Do you like the varieties of food on offer?

Yes, but I haven't had much of it yet.

Do you think the food prices are fair for what you are getting?

I thought it was going to be expensive, but I still underestimated how expensive it would be. For example, my Mexican meal cost £8.00 and I think £5.00 would have been fair for what I got.

What is the most unusual food you have tried at Latitude so far?

The Mexican, but I haven't tried much so I'm sure there is lots more.

On average, have you found the people on the food stalls friendly and co-operative?

Yes, I have.

What is your favourite food at Latitude so far?

I enjoyed the falafal most.

Do you like the varieties of foods on offer?

It's much better this year as there is gluten free food and vegetarian options. But I think there should be more fruit and vegetables on offer.

Do you think the food prices are fair for what you are getting?

The food is fair but water is very over priced at £2.20 a bottle on most stalls.

What is the most unusual food you have tried at Latitude so far?

The gluten free burger was very nice.

On average, have you found the people on food stalls friendly and co-operative?

Yes, I have.

Trent, 34, London

What is your favourite food at Latitude so far?

I've only had mini spring rolls but they were lovely.

Do you like the variety of foods on offer?

Yes but I'd like to see more curries around rather than so many fish and chips places.

Do you think the food prices are fair?

It is quite expensive and I think there should be discounts on family meals.

What is the most unusual food you have tried at Latitude so far?

I've seen all the different sorts of burgers and I think they're the most unusual. But obviously the most unusual I have tried were the spring rolls.

On average, have you found the people on food stalls friendly and co-operative?

Yes, they have been.
