The three course meal was excellent value and drinks were well priced. The service was a little slow however, and two of the four starters were 'off' by the time we ordered.

This is in St Austell and part of the students learning. Wonderful experience. The young students do wonderful work and everything is beautifully laid out on plate and table. Very cheap . Worth a dozen visits.

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.
