The three course meal was excellent value and drinks were well priced. The service was a little slow however, and two of the four starters were 'off' by the time we ordered.

This is in St Austell and part of the students learning. Wonderful experience. The young students do wonderful work and everything is beautifully laid out on plate and table. Very cheap . Worth a dozen visits.

Thank you for your feedback David, however we do try to cater for all dietary requirements hence the reason why we ask if there are any when customers book with us to give us time to provide something for these needs and not spring it on us on the day.

This was our stand out meal of the year. The menu is really well planned and the flavours in the dishes are exceptional. If you find it difficult to choose from the menu don't worry - it doesn't matter what you pick as it is ALL superb. Some examples: STARTERS: Scallops + drake pudding; ham hock tortellini; pesto pana cotta... More

I have eaten here before and last night I was not disappointed. The quality and choice of menu was excellent. The cost can never be argued with as it is good value for money.

This is a training restaurant within the college campus which has been for many years unknown to many people. Delivering lunches in their silver service restaurant from £10.50 and a 4 course fine dining dinner from £22. Definitely great value for money if you are on a budget.
