Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great food and fabulous service from Evie. Slight delay with the mains, as the kitchen weren't happy with the initial plate. Evie kept us informed and ensured we were happy. Would, and do, highly recommend.

Attended the Best of British Night. Booking was easy online and confirmation was received quickly. Food was amazing and so enjoyable. Enjoyed every course. Service was so professional, enough space in between courses and not rushed. Lovely atmosphere. Have booked for 2 more visits and...can’t wait.More

We had a lovely three course dinner and experience for lunch at Bcot. We were served by Dre who's service was friendly and attentive. The starters were exceptional and the honeycomb pieces in my dessert was amazing. Charlie at the bar was also helpful and...polite.More

This is our second time at the BCoT restaurant for the French themed night and once again we were not disappointed. The food was exquisite! It was like being in France. We loved every item on the menu, especially the egg and soldat which was...just amazing and the astonishing chocolate desert which made me think of one of the most prestigious restaurants in France. The staff and students are so lovely and always happy to help. We can’t wait to return to try the Japanese and the Spanish nights!More

Excellent Food for the French Themed Night. Been to BCoT a few times and always love it. It's a great way for students to learn Gastronomy and for us to enjoy fine dining. First time coming to a Themed Night and it was excellent. The...food was amazing and the team was friendly and attentive.More

1 via mobile Pending review Wonderful value for money Absolutely brilliant food and great value for money. The food was tasty, beautifully presented, and well cooked. Whilst the service wasn't what you would get at a professional restaurant, you have to remember that these are...teenagers, so as such it was great. Our server was Andreas and he was attentive and friendly and helpful. The only thing I would say could be improved, and it's really minor, is that the servers could tell you what you are getting for the courses that you don't order (amuse bouche, sorbet, petit fours). It would be a nice touch, and very helpful, to know what you are being served rather than it just being given to you. I did ask what flavour the sorbet was but Andreas didn't know. Luckily it was quite easy to figure out that it was raspberry. That was the only thing I can think of that could be improved on in future: just explain the courses we haven't ordered, please. We will definitely be back :)More
