About Taste Restaurant at Leicester College
We have taken the difficult decision to close our taste restaurant at Leicester College from Monday 16 March 2020 until further notice due to Covid 19. The safety of our staff, students and visitors is our highest priority and minimising visitors to the college is one way we can do this. We hope that you will continue to enjoy meals at the taste restaurant in the future and we will let you know when we are able to re-open.
Taste Restaurant is situated within Leicester College, Freemen’s Park Campus on Welford Road.
Our restaurant which has been highly commended by the AA is run by the Hospitality and Catering students who are committed to providing every customer with a unique dining experience. Our ethos is to ensure our customers receive the highest level of service whilst enjoying the quality of our food that has been cooked using locally sourced ingredients where possible.
Taste restaurant customers are able to follow our students on their journey into the catering industry and taste for themselves how their culinary and service develop throughout the year. As we are a training environment we offer real value for money.
We offer a range of menus that include afternoon tea, lunch and dinner together
A three course table d’hote meal in the evening is as little as £19.00 per person and a three course lunch from £11.00 per person.
The Taste team go above and beyond expectations to ensure you will want to come back time and time again.
Whether you are looking for a simple lunch, afternoon tea, an impressive meeting venue, private dining venue or an exciting table d’hote dinner, Taste restaurant can offer you a new experience in dining.

Our waiter, Michael was very laid back and while other service staff were rushed off their feet - he seemed to get others to help. The meal was excellent so congratulations to the team on an another superb Burns Night.

Absolutely wonderful experience, as always - great food and service - we come for Xmas lunch every year now and start looking forward to it in the summer! Thank you to the staff and students for all your hard work and talents.
We had a wonderful evening. The food was delicious. Nothing was too much trouble and students were so polite.
Another great Christmas Lunch at Taste. The food was really tasty and served quickly and on time. Our only small niggle was that the soup wasn't very warm. We'll certainly be booking again next year
