Great food and staff

This is a restaurant where potential chefs and restaurant staff are trained in a "live" supervised environment. The food, service and ambiance are excellent. I have eaten here on many occasions and never been disappointed.

I have been to Colours about 40 times over many years and I have never been disappointed. The food is outstanding and always tastes absolutely delicious. The staff are extremely friendly and even though you are served by students, they are so professional and courteous. I have been to restaurants where the staff have been far from friendly - not...

What a wonderful Sunday lunch I had with friends yesterday .From the minute we arrived we were treated like valued guests As it is a training experience for the staff they seem to care that they get things right. A lot of other complacent eateries could learn a thing or two from their expertise. The menu was varied and the... More

Meat was sliced quite thIck, although tasty, sharper knives would have been an advantage. The restaurant is quite bright, clean and a comfortable temperature.

The food here is good, however nothing that is outstanding. All the dishes are same style and taste. Buttered veg and new pots, a little unadventureus. Time for a menu and service style change.

One of many restaurants that have been set up by catering colleges that serve very good food at very reasonable prices. Staffed by the students (under supervision) they show up many more established restaurants (and chefs) with the standard of food and service. This is no gastro pub pretension rather a classic fine diningesque menu, well prepared and presented. The... More

25 members of our Diners Club had an amazing meal here last week. Considering the staff had to prepare and serve so many people without pre ordering, not one person in our group had any complaint whatsoever. The food was excellent. It was beautifully presented, hot and delicious. The staff were so polite and attentitive. If we were their tutors... More

The principle joy of this place is the good natured but often inept service provided by the students who wait on. This was splendidly demonstrated when my request for a large glass of chardonnay was met serviced with a large glass containing the standard measure of wine. But as large glasses go it was a fine specimen. The remainder of... More

Went last night; first time for a while. They have now carpeted the floor and added blinds which make the acoustics much better. It used to be very tinny and echoie. Food is very good and interesting. Being critical, the beef was a bit tough and the veg on the cool side. Overall, good food and good service. We paid... More
