“How it should be done”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

I recently went to The Red Carpet Restaurant with friends and I really enjoyed it.

In many restaurants, you see staff flying around, desperate to please their line managers to maximise the turnover of customers in an evening; not at the Red Carpet though, the students who prepared and served our courses were focused entirely on getting things right for every customer, which they did.

We were served by Charlotte, one of the many calm, methodical and professional members of a team of young people running the place, overseen at all times by a management team of College teachers which demonstrated to the diners that the Restaurant quality control was maintained at all times.

Not only was the service excellent, but the food was too, everyone really enjoyed it.

In short, top marks and a refreshing change to the norm!

“Fantastic food! Great service!”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Myself and my wife visited the Red Carpet last Thursday evening for Italian Theme! It was a fantastic experience the students made us feel so welcome and the food was very authentic to Italian cuisine I have tasted in the past! We will definitely be returning soon to support the students and sample more fantastic food!
