The college restaurant certainly produces some excellent cooks judging by the food/meals they produce. Always a pleasure to eat here and try their work. The staff and pupils are always helpful and obliging. Parking on site Prices reasonable. Nice to know the tax payers money is being well spent.

First time dining on one of the fine dining nights after seeing the ad on Facebook. Well sort the price as it's great value for money. Not only are you helping some young people learn about working in the restaurant trade, but the food is superb!

My husband and I went for lunch today and each had the 3 course meal, all 6 dishes were absolutely superb, presentation, choice and taste - STUNNING, the only thing wrong was we didn't take the camera so missed capturing a visual feast. Our hat's off to the chefs, the waiting staff and the whole team.

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... 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.
