Although we were unable to hold the event due to Covid – 19 this would have been the third time the Drapers Company had come to Origins due entirely to the fact that on the previous two occasions we had an excellent time , lovely food , great service and a warm welcome from all the staff and students. We hope to return in October if the situation permits .

It was great, loved it. I can be quite a fuzzy eater so being limited to a taster menu encourages me to try so many different dishes that I might not always choose, all of which turned out great, kitchen catered well for a pescatarian as well. Fab service. Thanks and see you again.

I didn't know what to expect with Irish night but the food presented was an absolute delight. I liked the choice of pearl barley and whilst stout ice cream with apple and oats didn't sound promising the actual combination was fabulous. Overall an excellent homage to the country

This has got to be one of the best restaurants in the area. Food was excellently prepared and served with unusual themes-full of surprises. Where we can we try to meet friends there once a month as value for money is second to none. Apart from this it is great to see students getting the expertise for their future careers. Well done staff and students alike.

The food was all well cooked and beautifully presented and the youngsters serving were very polite and eager to please. Will definitely come again, a very relaxed lunch in a bright airy restaurant, perfect.

The entire menu was excellent but the stand out items were: Fish cake Little blue coconut cubes (reminded me of the exquisite passionfruit jellies from the Moroccan night) Vegetable curry which was, happily, appropriately very spicy

Cannot fault this restaurant. It's a training restaurant but you would never have thought it from the standard of food - most definitely recommend.

Very small point but if you are training need to realise that Gin and tonic, tonic should be served separately. Also, Hendricks gin should be served with cucumber not lime. Otherwise fabulous.

It’s a lovely idea to help the trainees. It lacked a little atmosphere. The setting I mean. The way the Big tables were left empty. I think the lady running it was fabulous and the girl that fronted the table and poured the Prosecco has a great future. Other than that. Too many bodies. Makes you feel overwhelmed. Food was nice. But could be improved. Thank you for the experience.
