Technique Training Restaurant is a successful initiative established by the Food Design Institute, training our future chefs, hotel managers and restaurant staff under the guidance of industry professionals. We support the use of produce from local suppliers and campus gardens and our staff and students are committed to using sustainable practices. We also host a wide range of themed events throughout the year.

Lunch - from 11.45am, with the last seating at 12.45pm

Lunch service runs Thursdays and Fridays over 20 selected weeks during term time. Dinner service runs Wednesday to Friday from October 18 to 27. Technique Training Restaurant is fully-licensed.
