I had two Christmas lunches during the period they were being offered at Cloisters picking different food to have on each visit. The food was all exceptionally well cooked and the service was excellent.

A group of friends went to the Christmas evening meal and it was absolutely first class from the moment w walked through the door. A lot of the local establishments with supposedly professional staff could learn a lot from Cloisters. well done all of you.

Words are not sufficient to describe not only the food, but the excellent service. Am reluctant to say too much as I don't want too many people to visit !!! Would like to remain my secret. Can't wait to return.

This is a training restaurant within the college campus which has been for many years unknown to many people. Delivering lunches in their silver service restaurant from £10.50 and a 4 course fine dining dinner from £22. Definitely great value for money if you are on a budget.
