comment Is “outside food” acceptable in formal English?
I like "Guests cannot bring their own food" or perhaps "Guests shall not bring their own food!"

@tchrist: I meant parlance I'd use with business associates or on a printed sign, rather than on an SMS between close friends.

@Mitch: The first definition of adjectives on oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/outside is the meaning I'm familiar with i.e. things pertaining to the outside e.g. outside lights. I suppose definition 2 (Not belonging to or coming from within a particular group, hence "outside contractors") is closest to that the meaning in question though "outside food" still sounds odd.
