On arrival we found the atmosphere amd waiting staff very welcoming. They seated us quickly and ensured we had fresh water and took our drinks order straight away. As one of us has food allergies, they promptly brought over a guide so we knew what...allergens were in each meal (very thoughtful and appreciated as information such as this is not always readily available when we go out to other restaurants for a meal). The caesar salad was the best I've eaten by far! Cannot fault it at all. It was tweaked slightly as i am not a fan of anchovies and the chicken was cooked to perfection! The chocolate and caramel brownie with chocolate soil and ice cream was delicious and was gluten free too! Only wish we hadnt got so full as couldnt finish it all. Honestly had a lovely experience, was reasonably priced and will definitely being going back.More

Absolutely amazing food. The standard is exemplary. None of us could fault, anything that we ate portion sizes plentiful and the standard of cooking was outstanding.

I organised an evening meal at the Restaurant for some of the members of Bury St Edmunds Ramblers. We had exclusive use of the restaurant and 48 of us attended the evening. The food was fantastic, the service absolutely excellent and the atmosphere great. Everyone...commented on the quality of the food and how friendly, efficient and attentive the servers were. We were delighted that we were able to support this college run restaurant. Well done team.More

We came here while visiting family and were very pleased with all the vegetarian options and specially the tapas which were very good and the right announcement. They have a nice technooogy in which you can order online from your table which made it very...easy to order. The place is nicely decorated and has tons of charmMore

Equivalent food to nearby 5* establishments. Considering the students had only started a couple of weeks earlier, quite stunning.

I have been to Edmunds with friends several times in the last few months and every time it is brilliant. All the staff are so lovely and we have got to know some of the students and have seen their skills, confidence and careers progress....The food is always amazing and they will do whatever they can to ensure the dining experience is perfect. We mainly go for the weekly (in term time) Themed Evenings, although they do also open for snacks and lunches. They aren't open every day, so do check before you visit. We have recently been to Indian, Christmas Dinner and Tastes of East Anglia Themed Evenings. All have been excellent and we are looking forward to our next visit, which is a Steak Night in February. The restaurant is very popular and gets fully booked quickly, even though they provide 100 covers. I recommend that you join their mailing list now and then when you get invited to the preview night in September, go along and book as many visits as you fancy there and then, otherwise, you may not get in later. I absolute recommend you try Edmunds. You won't be disappointed.More

We visited Edmunds on Wednesday evening in a party of 38 and enjoyed a really good meal. Well presented and served, deliciously “different”. We thoroughly recommend a visit. Excellent, especially so, as everything is prepared, cooked and served by the students. Friday buffet is excellent...quality and value too.More

Visited this week for lunch and I am so glad I did. Food was delicious - I had a buttermilk chicken wrap with fennel slaw and it was amazing. Service was great, very attentive. The waiting staff and chefs are all students and they were...brilliant! A great local restaurant, at a very reasonable price and a great way to support the students at the college! 10/10 from me!More

I have just had the pleasure of eating at Edmunds. It was excellent. The food was beautifully presented, prepared and cooked. It is definitely worth a visit. I attended with a group of ladies (19 of us on all) and the service went like clockwork....Would definitely go back again. In fact planning a visit with my husband soon.More

Eating in a restaurant attached to a catering college is an intriguing prospect. So, too, was their once-a-week themed night which promised a platter of Thai dishes on the night we visited. The first thing to say is that everyone was extremely friendly, which translated...to service that was a little unpolished. The second thing to point out is that the dining room is large, a little canteen-like, although with well-separated tables, and packed to the rafters with customers evidently eager to experience a cut-price dinner. The menu included both standard and vegan options, although I suspect we, as vegetarians, were in the minority. The starter of corn and chilli fritters were served quickly but there wasn't a trace of chilli to be tasted. One of the waiters attending our table admitted that he'd been responsible for making the fritters and seemed remarkably blase about his omission. It then took 45 minutes for a platter of four dishes to be served. The vegetable green curry had some depth of flavour, but there was a hint of nam pla (fish sauce) in the background, which clearly is neither vegetarian nor vegan. Nam pla was even more evident in the pad thai noodles, which was almost cold and, quite simply, dreadful. Satay tofu skewers were much more successful and vegetable spring rolls were passable, although the pastry was thick and chewy. The desserts had no resemblance to anything Thai and someone had turned a singular custard into plural ones. Overall, the meal was a curate's egg and we thought more effort should have been made in creating the dishes in the first place and ensuring that service could cope with the number of covers. As a training experience, Edmunds need to do more to help their students learn from their mistakes.More

There is a large car park - it is attached to the college so I don't know if there are any restrictions in place during term time/school hours. Certainly a 7pm, there has never been any issue parking.
