I booked a table for four and we were not disappointed. Service was good, food was good and the experience was also good. I spend a lot of time in London or abroad, and the place had a very first class feel about it, the waitresses have obviously been trained to a very high standard and the chefs know what... More

We have been many times to Colours in its old, and current, venue. As you would expect from a "training" facility the restaurant is very well laid out with modern decor and the staff are all very well turned out and polite. The food is superb and a little slice of fine dining at affordable prices is a refreshing change.... More

The staff are mostly students which is fair enough and it's enjoyable to help them learn by being good customers and helping them to relax into their roles. The food is good on the whole but my pork had a very oily coating indeed and a fellow diner's bruschetta was burned black, but still served up. However if the staff... More

Starters were quite small, but tasty. Both had steak for main - delicious! Waiting staff were very attentive. Overall, very good value for money and we both left feeling stuffed! Looking forward to going again!

We've come to colours on many occasions and have never been let down by the food, service and surroundings. A lovely place to eat and relax and although it's a college training restaurant it has always given me better service than some top hotels.

Colours is the restaurant attached to St Helens College which provides training for chefs and waiting staff. As such, the food is of very good quality - both at lunchtime, the evening and weekends - while a silver service is provided. The prices are very competitive, indeed taking the range and quality of food available I believe it would be... More

We had been here 5 years previous and had been disappointing, this time it was great. We had a mixed fish main meal that was really tasty, the steak was nicely done to our taste. The welcome was warm although the restaurant was not busy even with it being a Friday night.

Last went 5 days ago and it was as good as ever really excellent food at good prices. It was a thrusday evening so it was something like £15 for 2 courses which you would... More

Great food, great service, and lovely restaurant. We went on a Saturday evening and couldn't ask for more. Top notch food and great value. Highly recommended.

Visited on a Friday evening 2 adults 2 children. There was no set children's menu but they were very accommodating and allowed the children to chose from the main menu with a child's portion. Food was outstanding every bit of it. Service was excellent and wine equally as good. Value was incredible too. Great dining experience.
