To all of our lovely customers…

It seems like we only just started to see you all again, and now we are back in Lockdown. We thank you for your continued support of our training restaurant and please feel confident in knowing that your safety and well-being is of the utmost importance to us, and we continue to follow all regulations to make your return to COAST as safe and as enjoyable as possible.

Even though future bookings are uncertain at the moment, with hope in our hearts, we are still taking bookings for Christmas.

As the students are still in College and learning and practising their skills, we have plans over the next 4 weeks for a takeaway service of frozen meals to stock your freezers as well as going into production of baked goods, delicious chutneys, preserves, pates and Christmas cakes for purchase. More details to come, so please watch this space, or contact us with any questions on: 030 300 38456
