Let the photographs speak for themselves. Served by students who are learning the job. Very reasonably priced and plenty to eat. The restaurant manager oversees everything and makes sure you are fully satisfied. Would highly recommend.

This is a restaurant attached and staffed by a catering college. These guys are learning skills and a trade for life this means you are their guinea pig but don't be put off they are expertly directed by the college staff. The food is very well presented and presented at a very high standard for in reality a bargain price.
