The restaurant is staffed by catering students who use it, under guidance, to gain experience. The quality of the food is exceptional! Original, excellent cuisine any master chef would be proud of. Service is very, very good, friendly and welcome. A wonderful gem hidden away in a college, not to be missed (and patronage helps the students). We will be back!

Me, my husband and my husband's parents attended the italian themed night. The staff/students were very attentive and polite towards us the food was very tasty and the whole night was very cheap, 5 courses for £18.00 pp. would recommend the lounge Bistro to any one.
