Our restaurant is open to the public for lunch and evening service during term time. This is where our talented catering students have the opportunity to show off what they have learned and to demonstrate their creative flair in the kitchen. All the dishes are prepared by students under the careful supervision of our professional chef-lecturers and technicians. The hospitality and catering team has built an excellent reputation through the achievements of its students in competitions such as World Skills, the Electrolux Student Chef of the Year and the Northamptonshire Food and Drink Awards. Our alumni have gone on to work at prestigious London hotels such as the Dorchester, Savoy and Claridges, as well as local high-quality establishments including Whittlebury Hall, Kilworth House and Fawsley Hall. Feedback from customers of The Lane usually includes high praise and we rely on it to adapt and improve our service. If you've dined at The Lane recently, we'd like to hear from you! Why not join us for lunch or dinner at our fabulous restaurant?
