Please stock Irn Bru. Are the waiters actually observed while they work? do they get any direct feedback and guidance while they work? We feel they are uncomfortable around us, reluctant to provide a proper service because they are unsure of what to do. The food has been consistently well prepared and presented.

All the food was skilfully prepared and beautifully presented, the menu had enough variety. Service was friendly and attentive without being in your face. The only error noted was that we weren't offered butter with the bread while other tables were, but it didn't detract from the experience. Thank you so much to the students and staff for working hard and making it possible for us to enjoy such a wonderful meal.

The food was excellent but would have been good to have 2 different main rather that both curries. There was also no dessert today. Atmosphere was nice with some light music in the background so that our conversation remained private. Service was great and the boy serving us was chatty and friendly. Very good value for money at only £5

Meal was excellent. The students did very well. The choice was good and a personalised menu for dietary requirements was an additional touch. Would recommend

We booked a table for six. Four of us had been there before and have come back on multiple occasions because the service, food and atmosphere is always great. This visit did not disappoint. From start to finish, service was impeccable. The food was fantastic. We will be back!

The food is fabulous but you would expect the service to be less than perfect as they are trainees. Walking from the college into the restaurant is not the best introduction to it but once inside it feels more like a restaurant.

Food was excellent, service could be a little better as got the impression that students were looking around for things to do but when trying to get their attention they couldn't see us? Plates were left too long on the table after finishing eating. Staff were pleasant and tried to accommodate a late guest but we had to wait some time before his meal came after we had nearly finished. Overall very nice time and will come again

We always have a lovely evening at the Apprentice Restaurant.. Last Thursday was particularly good in every way. Special mention for the excellent service and for the way the kitchen coped when there was a gas problem. The practice last month when the fire alarm went off and Vikki showed everyone ‘exactly How to cope in a crisis” must have been a lesson well learnt. Thank you all for these delightful evenings that we all look forward to so much.

Lovely lunch, only criticisms were arriving at 1230 and waiting till 130 to get our mains even though there were tables that came in after us and weren't waiting as long as we did. I did bring it up and the waitress was really apologetic. Also my potatoes were solid and uncooked for my main. I wouldn't let this stop me from coming again :)

We had such a lovely time here. The service was excellent and the meal was amazing and we were all total stuffed after it. We found it very relaxing and the attention to detail was brilliant. You can see the students are putting a lot of hard work into this and they deserve all the credit for it. I have been to a lot of restaurants which have been more expensive but this experience was a lot better compared to a lot of restaurants up town. It is amazing value for what you pay but I would have paid more also for the experience. I thought it was great when all the students were asking how they had done and they received 110% feedback from us and we will be coming back and ill spread the work. Keep up the great work and if you have not been just go.

The soup and the dessert were very good. The Thai green curry would have been better with less meat, more vegetables and more sauce with more spices and perhaps some coconut milk.
