Leicester College is OPEN as normal on Wednesday 1 February.

Taste Restaurant


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. Should Covid-19 government guidelines still be in place when we re-open, we will update you on our procedures.
