Amazing...again!

This was our second visit to Cloisters and we were as 'wowed' by the quality of food and service as we were the first time! The students work so hard and the food is just to die for!! Presentation is fantastic and the variety of food on the menu makes it so hard to decide what to have! Thanks to... read more

Went in for lunch last week and was very impressed! Food was presented like any Michelin star restaurant and the belly pork was amazing! We even got to see the chiefs that had cooked each course! Cannot believe they can produce such high quality food at such a low cost to customers.

This training restaurant at Cornwall College St Austell is a perfect venue for lunch. The restaurant has a beautiful view overlooking St Austell Bay, and our lunch today was worthy of a Michelin rating. The student chefs are to be congratulated for serving such high quality cuisine; the students training in front of house duties were most attentive. My husband... More

The students and their tutor were all so friendly, the food was absolutely lovely and the service was very good indeed. Really reasonably priced, I will certainly recommend Cloisters and will certainly return.

Three courses for £8.50, all wine £8 a bottle and cocktails for £3 - but this does not feel like a low budget compromise! The students aim to provide excellence in food and service, and although some of the menu items had sold out when we got there at 1pm the food we had was very impressive.

The Cornwall College has trainee restaurant where all the young future chefs learn their skills, baking, cooking to laying the tables. This is a wonderful experience. Really reasonably priced. You go once you want to go again and again. It is organised to perfection and these young people take their tasks very seriously indeed. Try it and you will not... More

The food which was prepared by catering students at the college was amazing. Extremely well presented, very tasty, good size portions and all for a reasonable price.

We went there last night in a party of 6 - first time for myself and my husband, the rest of the party were regulars. It was a real treat - the food was very good indeed and all very good value for money. I applaud the students - brilliant job! We are booking to go back late in January!... More
