Highs and lows of the Italian Night The Academy training catering college in Haverfordwest had an excellent night of Italian cuisine. Radicchio salad with mushrooms and gorgonzola dressing, Gnocchi with black pepper and goat’s cheese sauce. Roast rack of pork with thyme risotto, veal with asparagus, and a Linguine dish. All followed by hazelnut chocolate and coffee bavarois gateau and... More

Knowing that the restaurant is run by students, I had allowed extra time for a lunchtime meeting thinking that the service would be slow....I was very much mistaken. We were seated straight away. Drinks were offered and brought to the table, the menu was varied with a range of options to suit all palettes and the service was impeccable. We... More

We have been going to the restaurant over many years.Produce is always of excellent quality and meals are produced under the supervision of the College tutors and sometimes local guest Chefs. It is good to support these catering students who are experiencing at first hand, serving food to paying customers. It can be an excellent evening meal eaten in comfortable... More

The training restaurant offers a fine dining experience. It develops future chefs and front house professionals in the Catering College. Thursday evenings present an opportunity for the students to present a meal under the guidance of their tutors and sometimes guest chefs from established restaurants in West Wales. Lunches are also available Monday to Friday. We have visited on many... More

Delicious fine dining experience for a fraction of the cost of a mainstream restaurant. The food is always well presented, fresh and served with care at the table by the students. Obviously this is a learning environment, so things can be a little slower than you may be used too, but it will always be worth it! I haven't eaten... More

The Academy Restaurant at Pembrokeshire College is a tremendous place to eat. Sittings are at 6.00pm in the evenings, and the meals are prepared and presented by students under supervision. The quality of both would be hard to beat. The food is extremely well prepared and attractively presented, whilst the waiting staff are extremely attentive and careful. Everything is done... More

We regularly have lunch in the Academy restaurant and have to say that this is the best value meal in the area, with a varied cuisine that would compare favourably with London restaurants. For around £8 each, we have 3 course meal with coffee after. Brilliant value. The Academy is run by students, but the service is good and quick.... More

This restaurant, situated within Pembrokeshire College, is excellent. The students cook and serve - under supervision - and the standard of both is top class. There is only one sitting - around 6.30pm, but the meals are not rushed. You will not find better value anywhere, and you will be impressed by the quality of the service - silver service... More
