Looking forward to welcoming you back

We're pleased to announce that the college has reopened with a new cohort of old and new learners. Training sessions are underway and we're looking forward to welcoming you back through the doors.

Changes for 2020-21

To ensure we adhere to curriculum, we have opted to hold a "Bistro style" service on Monday's and Wednesday's to suit level 2 learners with Restaurant service resuming on Thursday's and Friday's with level 3's. Menu's and prices will vary depending on service style.

Please keep an eye on this web page for further updates and sample menus.

COVID-19 compliance

We have implemented an array of hygiene measures to comply with the government guidance on COVID-19. Please follow the signage and information upon entry to the Restaurant.

Booking is essential during these times so if you would like to visit the restaurant, please make a reservation. To comply with track and trace protocol, Kings restaurant will hold your name and number for a 21 day period.

This is a challenging time for all of us and we do appreciate your patience while we adapt to these new measures.

Thank you to those that completed our survey, all suggestions have been taken into consideration.
