“Great quality and value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

Now called Gate 63, we had our office Christmas lunch here last Friday. It was fab - first class food and service at a great price. As a vegetarian, it can sometimes feel like the veg option is an after thought, but not here. And, to top it all off, hand made chocs to die for!

“Great quality food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

I was very impressed at the incredibly high standard of food quality and presentation that the students presented. They should be very proud of the work that they do.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

This a great place if you want to have a short stay meal for lunch with it's range of fixed menu choices and these change from time to time and the table layout was very well presented. I had the pleasure of being served by the most professional students within the professional cookery department both in front of house and the chefs. My experience when I had my lunch there, I was attended to straight away with a smile and a warm welcome and showed to my seat, where i was then given time to check the menu and place my order. During the wait, I had the joy of having one of the non-alcoholic cocktails - this tasted great! Shortly after, I was served with my meal which I ordered. The presentation looked as good as if it were from the top restaurants. Taste was very nice. Could easily have had more of it, it was that good.

Was really good food with a set menu. We arrived and were sat right away, served with a smile and nothing was to much bother for the staff. Very impressed. Thanks
