Join the mailing list & receive the menu booklet every Sept/Oct (new term). Book Early! for Xmas lunch or dinner. Don't Miss! If you appreciate good food. Check the website. The Wharncliffe Restaurant & hard working students are well deserving of all the local support. It's near the Civic Theatre with car parks on Percy St & Wharncliffe St. on-street parking on Percy St. Don't miss the restaurant being open all day from Mon 13 Jan 2014 to 30/31st Jan 2014 (trial period) for breakfasts, all day menu, just a coffee or early bird menu. All freshly made & local suppliers used. 5*****

We went to the Wharncliffe for a 6 course meal and was extremely impressed. The standard of food was exceptional and the service by the students was superb. The venue isn't flashy but it didn't effect us having a great evening. I also value the fact that students are learning essential skills on the job and they paid great attention to making sure we were happy with the service. If you go make sure you tip, the students deserve it.

I have been here quite a few times now. The food is second to none. This is a training restaurant attached to Rotherham college. I went there with work colleagues not expecting much to be fair. I was ridiculously impressed by this place. The decor is not the most modern but is lovely and clean and there is a nice intimate atmosphere to it. Even though these students are learning the service is great. Yea occasionally they do get bits of the silver service for instance, the wine glass on the wrong side. However they are always smiling and enthusiastic.
The food was tasty, plentiful and beautifully presented. Three courses and a warm mince pie for later on all for 12.95 absolute bargain. Will be going back.

This is fine dining on a budget. This restaurant is attached to the teaching college and it is the most fantastic value for money that I know of. The food is superb every time. Menus are changed on a regular basis and the students provide silver service. Where else can you get all this for for three courses at £8.50. I cannot praise this venue enough.
