City View Restaurant - The fun, the food and the fine dining.
With 2017 now behind us, City View Restaurant look back on their busy, event-packed year full of not only busy lunches and fine dining evenings, but charity nights, fund-raisers and themed dining evenings, too.
Staff and students site-wide are impressed with the consistent effort put in by the restaurant; their customers also seem to agree...
One visitor said:
"Fantastic service and great value for money. The students run the restaurant in such a very professional manner and the food is of a ‘London restaurant’ quality without the London prices. Definitely a hidden gem and worth a visit at lunch time or Thursday evening visit."
Another customer also commented:
"What a lovely night!! Great food, student waiters were fantastic. We met the student chiefs and their teachers!! Really inspiring knowing that young people can produce great food such as this."
Not only do our customers love our on-site restaurant, but our students love to learn there, too. Our teachers also love to impart their knowledge onto the students, helping them develop personally and professionally into the next generation of chefs.
