“It’s so enjoyable to chat with the enthusiastic trainees” at this catering college dining room in a quiet corner of Westminster, staffed by the students. Not only that, but “the set lunch menu is a steal” for “witty and beautifully presented food” delivered by “well-meaning if haphazard” servers.
This training-ground for young chefs – part of a catering college in a tranquil and leafy corner of Westminster – is worth a try: you get “large portions” and “excellent value for money”. “Serving staff can be erratic, but they’re learning!”
Despite the elegant Westminster location, “low prices reflect that this is a training ground” for one of London’s main catering colleges; by nature “it’s a bit hit and miss”, but typically “you get great food that’s good value”, and the servers are “charming, and eager for comments and criticism”.
“The students got through it, and so did we!” – the elegant dining room of this Westminster college can offer “delicious” food “even though it’s cooked and served by catering students”; you have to accept “a few hairy moments”, but “who knows, these may be great chefs of the future!”
The Vincent Rooms, Westminster Kingsway College Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Went as a foursome to the Escoffier Room for a birthday lunch and we all had the tasting menu, with a few vegetarian substitutions, plus the matching wines - £55 per head, all in. What a truly wonderful culinary experience - no-one could beat this for value."
