I was lucky enough to be there recently on the last night this term for a wonderful Italian themed taster menu. I have been there regularly over many years and it has always been good but the standard of food in the past year has been exceptional and we have loved the taster nights, such a great idea. The students obviously change from year to year so I assume the improvement in the standard of food is due to their current tutors. It has been a great pleasure to see the development in the the students waiting on, from being rather diffident in the Autumn to being much more confident and proficient at our last visit. You obviously have a great team of tutors so we look forwards to resuming our regular visits after the summer break and hope you continue with the themed nights as well as the fantastic Christmas & Dydd Gŵyl Dewi (St David's day) menus.

We have been coming to Friars training Restaurant for many years, and last night had the best food ever. I would like to congratulate Sarah who runs the kitchen and Louise who is in charge of front of house on the fantastic job that they do. The food has always been good, but this year has been exceptional. We especially enjoy the themed nights, where we enjoy the taster menu. Keep up the good work and look forward to seeing you next year with the new trainees. It's also fantastic to see the students develop and mature over their 2 year training.

This week I have had a facial, a flotation massage and a hot stones massage. The students were very proffesional, thorough and so well prepared.
I love having these pampering sessions.

Lovely Christmas lunch at Friars today. Filling vegetable soup, traditional turkey and a light chocolate bavarois for dessert. Students were confident and professional considering this is a training restaurant. Lovely to see it full! If you get a chance to visit, do so. Its well worth it!
