Food – ”We have been visiting The Open Kitchen restaurant for over four years now. The décor and food has certainly kept with the times producing lovely first class ‘modern’ food, at a fraction of the price you would expect to pay in a top class restaurant. we have had lunch meals, evening speciality and fine dining meals and we have never been disappointed! I would definitely recommend and will definitely return.”

Went for the Valentine evening set dinner – ”Julie and the students at the College did an excellent special meal. The food was very well presented and everything was cooked to perfection. The students who were waiters were very professional and very pleasant. The menu choice was also delicious and catered for all tastes. Clara had a discreet safe area to lie down next to me. This is always very helpful”.
