We are a fine dining training restaurant situated on the grounds of St Katherine's Secondary School in Bristol. All our food is prepared, cooked and served by students from the age of 14, studying hospitality. We believe we are the only restaurant of this type in the country. We are open for dinner each Thursday evening during term time. We offer a 3 course, 3 choice menu for £12 per person. We have a fully licensed bar and a well priced wine list. We also take private parties and larger functions. There is ample car parking on site. Bookings can be made by phoning the school or through our website.
