What am amazing concept, will definitely be back. I had the scallops to start and it’s up there with one of the best starters I’ve ever had. Beef shin for main, absolutely delicious, fell apart, whole dish seasoned very well. My dessert was a peanut butter parfait and I’m so glad I went for that option. Everyone should be super proud.

Good effort from the lads. A few rough edges, but that’s to be expected.One star off a perfect 5, as the food was a tad overseasoned to my taste (the roasted tomato soup sweetness overpowered the subtler flavours, paprika? and the chips with the burger were well cooked but floppy and were unnecessarily oversalted, as we have salt on the table to add our own).Having been to the Escoffier Room at Westminster College in London we know just how good an experience catering college dining can be. We’ll try and get back again on our next visit to the area to try their evening service.
