About
Winner of the TripAdvisor award for Excellence for the fourth year in a row. Our ethos is remarkably simple; we want to give food-lovers the opportunity to sample locally-sourced, seasonal and high-quality produce, which is prepared, cooked and served by the College of West Anglia’s budding young chefs. Guests are treated to a completely unique dining experience within an ambient and spacious setting, all at a remarkably low price. A three-course lunchtime menu starts at just £8, while the three-course evening menu ranges from £12-£18, with plenty of vegetarian options available. The restaurant also boasts a fully-licensed bar.
