College restaurant ready to re-open

FOOD fans can get a three-course meal at a discount rate when Wiltshire College’s student-run restaurant returns next month.
The Wessex Restaurant, at the campus on Southampton Road, is due to open for service on Thursday, November 3.

Budding chefs and hospitality professionals at the restaurant are gearing up for their first service from a professional kitchen.
The Wessex is operated by students under the guidance of highly-trained professionals.
It runs a weekly lunch service from 11.45am to 1pm each Thursday, offering a freshly-prepared three-course meal for £12.
Several bookings are already in place for the first service, said Steve Lloyd, deputy head of department for hospitality at the college.
He said: “We are delighted to be opening the Wessex Restaurant at our Salisbury campus for the first time in the new academic year.

“We know that the restaurant is extremely popular with local residents and we look forward to welcoming our customers back in the coming weeks.
“Being able to cook and serve food to order for paying customers is a key aspect of students’ development and will best prepare them to start their careers in the industry.
“All of our menu items are, where possible, locally sourced and made from fresh ingredients, including produce from the college’s Lackham campus.”
