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.

We booked for a thursday night, and there was only one other table filled. Beautiful surroundings, fantastic relaxed atmosphere (I hate loud, brash places) The food was amazing, and the waitress had started her course late and only been doing it just THREE weeks....you wouldn't have guessed at all, such was her attention to detail and customer care.
