About Scholars Training Restaurant
The restaurant is the training restaurant for students studying Cookery, Hospitality and Events at the college. It offers a contemporary, relaxed dining experience.The menu changes regularly and reflects local Scottish produce, cooked well with thoughtful presentation. The students and staff have won many accolades both in the UK and abroad for the skills they are developing. Well worth a visit!
Friendly staff and amazing food for fabulous prices! I can't emphasise enough how good this restaurant is!
Great to hear, thanks
Food excellent for starter and main course. Ordered gin & tonic but no gin available. We were not offered Sorbet. Had to ask. The sweet we ordered was not available. Apple tart. We were not told this and waiters took back the sweet we did not ask for. Our waitress Amanda thought supervisor had apologised and explained. Under circumstances thought we be offered complimentary coffee. We were given quiz sheets on table but that was the last we heard about it. The food we had was gorgeous and well presented. Perhaps a learning curve.
Thanks for the comments about our training restaurant, and of the students assessment
It was a friendly atmosphere.
Was really impressed by the standard of service helpful friendly staff food was excellent as was the presentation and price wise I nearly fell off my chair with surprise would recommend to anyone nothing short of first class 😊😊😊 🍴
delighted to hear you enjoyed the visit
This is our third Theme dinner and as usual food very good. Drinks service much improved . Kerry our waitress was very efficient and had a good personality.The theme was reflected very well in the food and the touches on table and music. A very good evening enjoyed by all our party.
Glad you enjoyed the visit to the restaurant
My second visit to the new Scholars restaurant, and once again, delighted with my lunch. Two small criticisms from an experienced caterer, (1), the waitress was unsure of what came with the main course, but at least she returned from the kitchen with the answer! (2), once again, as with my previous visit, when asked for a teaspoon to eat my dessert, the waiter brought it in his wee hot hand, not on a plate. This is one of my pet hates !! All cutlery brought to the table in front of customers has to be brought on a plate/server, this is basic waiting skills, but appears to be lacking ! Still, delighted with my visit, and will be back next month.
thanks for the comments about our training restaurant, glad to hear you will be back
Great Meal and good attentive service
appreciate the kind words
Enjoyed the projection of "Still Game" too.
Five stars isn't enough for value for money
Thanks James, very kind
This was our 4th visit and everything is getting better and better. Food is beautifully presented and the service is efficient and friendly.
Great to see you back dining with us! Thanks
First visit to the restaurant and we will most definitely return. The staff were all very friendly and attentive. The food was outstanding. Beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. One of the best meals I have had and at a fraction of the price I would expect to pay. Excellent!! Please pass on our compliments to the staff.
Thanks for the feedback, will pass on the compliments
Excellent time for lunch
As an ex student myself I was keen to see what all the fuss was about. It super exceeded our expectations. Simply excellent food, lovely surroundings and nice service. Thank you

Wonderful food and service.
Thanks for the feedback
First time here. food was excellent and good value for money.Would recommend and will certainly be back
see you soon!
Food is fab, 3 delicious courses for £9 must be the best value in town. Service still a little rough round the edges, a tad slow at times, but not unexpected so in no way detracts from the fab food experience!
Thanks, will pass on
The presentation and taste were both excellent. The students were all polite & helpful. They worked as a total team-very impressive. We will be back and expect the same very high standard!!! One student was year 1 and did well. We liked the chefs coming out to talk to us.
thanks for the kind comments
Served warm prosecco and warm white wine, waitress held water glasses by the rim when filling, there was a double booking in our name-the waitress argued with us and actually brought over bookings sheet to show us-took third conversation about it for her to say there was an error. Amuse bouche-tofu consistency was not pleasant, tuna was great. Starter-calamari cooked perfectly, good size portion and very nice. Sea bass was cooked very well, crispy sling and moist flesh, rest of dish was good-a little dry, it would have benefitted from a drizzle of soy/chilli/ginger dressing. Tart had split with texture of eggy lemon, watermelon was not compressed and meringue was raw. Coconut mousse was nice. All dishes very well presented, good timing for courses. Very nice time overall!
Sorry to hear about the temp of the drinks, we will address that, glad the night was nice overall
The students were very attentive, friendly and knowledgable and the food was exceptional. Well done to all.
Unbelivable value for money first time been there will definately be back staff were great and really friendly great food
See you soon, thanks
