This was our stand out meal of the year. The menu is really well planned and the flavours in the dishes are exceptional. If you find it difficult to choose from the menu don't worry - it doesn't matter what you pick as it is ALL superb. Some examples: STARTERS: Scallops + drake pudding; ham hock tortellini; pesto pana cotta... More

I have eaten here before and last night I was not disappointed. The quality and choice of menu was excellent. The cost can never be argued with as it is good value for money. The changes made to the environment are successful and it has a pleasant feel which adds to the eating experience. This is a training environment and... More

My husband and I had a lovely Ruby Wedding anniversary meal at the Cloisters. The young staff were very professional, extremely attentive and welcoming, and the menu was impressive. The food itself was great and made the evening a memorable one.

I have been lucky enough to visit this restaurant of many occasions. At no time have I been disappointed by the quality of food, the standard of service or value for money. The dishes served would not be out of place in top restaurants and I thoroughly recommend a visit.

Just eaten at Cloisters for the first time in a couple of years, but it was our fourth visit. The food was amazing in variety and flavour. Hot dishes were piping hot; cold desserts refreshing and tasty. A good variety of fish and fowl and an excellent selection of vegetables. Service from arrival to departure was friendly and efficient. It... More

The food was very well presented and beautifully cooked. Only comment was that the crab & chilli sauce should have been served in a more accessible dish as it was delicious but very difficult to get out. Excellent value for money.

Lunched here today for the second time. Excellent quality food, beautifully presented. 3 courses for £10.50, what value!! The service is second to none, everyone is very welcoming. Everything is prepared, cooked and served by the students. A nice touch is that after the courses the students, who have prepared the food, visit each table to hear the customers' reaction... More

We ate lunch at Cloisters today and were really impressed. We had 3 course meal which was beautifully cooked and presented and well served all under the watchful eye of a supervisor. Most impressed that 11yr old "fussy" daughter tried everything on her plate even eating the samphire under her cornish fishcake in bisque sauce and my 9 year old... More

We keep going back, the food is truly excellent and such good value. The restaurant is run by the students under supervision. These youngsters are the Nathan Outlaw's of the future. Cannot be too highly praised.

Description
This is a training restaurant within the college campus which has been for many years unknown to many people. Delivering lunches in their silver service restaurant from £10.50 and a 4 course fine dining dinner from £22. Definitely great value for money if you are on a budget.
