It was our first time on 19th November to experience this gastronomic delight. From being greeted by the students to the end of our meal the service was exceptional, the food outstanding surpassing top rated restaurants! The students and staff are so dedicated to their delivery of service and we felt privileged to have secured a booking! Thanks to everyone

The Beechwood Restaurant offers very reasonably priced fresh food cooked and served by the students. They could give many top class restaurants a run for their money, well done students and staff. Excellent.

Not only is the food delicious, varied as well as affordable but the students are so helpful, courteous and... More

My partner & I have eaten at the Beechwood several times – for lunches as well as evening meals. It has been an absolute pleasure each time – exquisite subtle food flavours and fabulous combinations, always beautifully presented. The prices are unbelieveably reasonable for the quality of food, presentation and service. There is always a warm welcome from the front... More

I have eaten at many colleges across the UK and this has to be high in the rankings. The food today was absolutely fantastic.

Credit also to the Students behind the scenes for presentation and efficiency. The quality... More
