Staff took our party to our table and asked if we required a drink at the table or we could go to the bar area. As I am a diabetic one member of the staff enquired which one of us it was and I informed it was me. They brought us our drinks before they took our orders for starters... More

The Signature Restaurant is where the catering students of Bolton College put into practice what they are learning in the lecture rooms and a great job they are doing to - they are a credit to their teachers/lecturers. We were a large party of eleven ladies which many restaurants would have found daunting to serve but these 1st year students... More

Went today for the first time, what a beautifully presented and cooked food. When you think these could be first year students the quality of service and food was as good as a Michelin restaurant. They where a credit to the college and themselves

This is a restaurant staffed by catering students who prepare and serve all the meals. But you wouldn't know that by the quality of food and service. Just had a Christmas dinner yesterday which was amazing 3 courses and mince pies and coffee for only £18. They also have a bistro on Thursdays and Fridays, no need to book for... More

A great place to go for good food. Remember that you are part of the lesson and without you the students wouldn't know how to interact with 'live' customers.

Thank you for your review. It is good to hear the learners were professional and you enjoyed the food especially as we are only in the first term and some learners have never spoken to customers before. We look forward to welcoming you to Signature Restaurant again soon. More

Attended the Bolton College Training restaurant for a superbly prepared and served by the students 4 course dinner in very comfortable surroundings. The students delivered a good service under the direction/supervision of a senior Chef de Range, but always under the scrutiny of the course tutors. It was excellent value for money and invaluable practice for the young students.

great place to eat, novel idea as you are served by students, but for the price it can't be beaten. great if you go regularly as we do, you can see the improvement in the individual students
