Hospitality & Catering students serve a staggering 1,200 Christmas meals in Buckley's restaurant

When Hospitality & Catering students hang up their chef whites and aprons for the festive break, they will have served a staggering 1,200 Christmas dinners over a three-week period.

Whether it was potato and leek soup, salmon or pork starters, lasagne, haddock, lamb or turkey with all the trimmings, Christmas pudding or cheesecake, every meal was made from scratch and served by Warrington Collegiate’s talented students.

Reviews so far have included: “An excellent Christmas meal for a group of 24 of us. The food was delicious and looked really professional."

“Top class food and service, fine dining at its best, can’t recommend it enough.”

Andy MacLeod, Curriculum Leader for Hospitality & Catering, said: “The students have performed fabulously well. For a lot of them, it was their first experience of a busy service and they coped tremendously well. It will stand them in good stead for the upcoming new year and moving forward into employment.”
