taste restaurant

We have taken the difficult decision to close our taste restaurant at Leicester College from Monday 16 March 2020 until further notice. 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 has been offering fine-dining experiences at accessible prices for many years in Leicester. The restaurant (which has an AA College Rosette Award) is fully catered and staffed by our food and hospitality learners – always under the watchful eye of our industry-experienced lecturing staff, of course. Our talented up-and-coming chefs promise to serve you gourmet delights (with impeccable service) whether you come for lunch or for dinner. The restaurant is also fully licensed. taste has received some wonderful reviews, which you can read on the Trip Advisor website.
