Every Thursday from 2pm, learners and staff will come together to serve delicious treats and desserts all for the small fee of £4 per head.

The skills learned in class by the professional cookery students matched with the enthusiasm in the table service by the supported education learners makes for a very enjoyable experience.

 There is a wide range of baked goods, hot and cold desserts and sweet items on offer which appeals to any sweet tooth.

 The group have enjoyed decorating the restaurant with an old-fashioned look and are really enjoying interacting with the public.

 “This is a unique way of showcasing the talents that the students pick up in class and a way of building their confidence.”  Said hospitality lecturer Lesley Hodgens.

 “The café will give the public the chance to try our handmade goods, chat and enjoy the busy tearoom atmosphere.”
