What's on offer at The City of Liverpool College

Some of the best food I've had and at an incredible price. 3 courses and half a bottle of (good quality, not house) wine for £27.50 per head. These trainee chefs really know what their doing. The college does a fantastic job in training up chefs who go onto to work in some of the best restaurants in the region country. The front of house staff are let loose early in their training which provides an endearing (occasionally entertaining!) waiter/waitress experience
