Over priced but good quality food, noisy, but clean with very good attentive staff. Could be a bit more competitive on price as its a captive audience.

Great setting but the restaurant decor is bland and featureless. Where is the character? Photos, paintings?
During the week the catering is by students from City College, 2 courses £9.50. The food quality is variable: Blade of Beef overcooked, Salmon raw inside, both dishes luke warm. Presentation: uninspired. Service from students: abysmal. No eye contact, no awareness, no knowledge of the product but then these are trainees so that's no surprise. They'll get better, but will they? During our visit there was no evidence that anyone was in charge just groups of students chatting. No one to show you to your table, menus handed out but not collected, the waiter didn't know the difference between draught and bottled beer. When the salmon turned out to be not cooked a replacement was offered but the tutors would have been unaware of this as they were nowhere to be seen.
This is a sad indictment of the education on offer here. The students are being badly let down. They would learn far more working in a real restaurant for one day than they will in a term here.
Restaurant standards in the future depend on how staff are trained now and on this evidence taxpayers money is being wasted. It would be better used subsidising apprenticeships.
I would have left this feedback at the restaurant but no forms were available.
