The unique partnership with Hospitality House, set up by the Hospitality Guild, adds to this impressive portfolio of facilities by providing training and facilities to current students, local employers and residents. The gleaming stainless steel kitchen, the mobile cooking pods that configure and reconfigure, the café, reception area, EPOS system and the fully stocked bar and cellar create a real-world experience for learners. Live streaming and video recording mean instant and analysable feedback.

The College also provides the opportunity to work with incredibly talented and high profile chefs. Recent students have done work placements with Marcus Verbene from Roast restaurants, Vivek Singh of Cinnamon Club and Harrods. Hospitality House is the backdrop for a wide array of classes, from using kitchen knives to bread making and how to make the perfect canapés, soups and sauces. For culinary enthusiasts of all levels, Hospitality House is an incredible place to learn both the skills of the sector and to experience the energy and passion that go into top class service.
