St Georges Restaurant

St Georges Training Restaurant is your local choice serving up old-world classics to innovative gastronomy with an affordable menu changing seasonally to ensure the freshest produce.

In addition to the regular a la carte services, the restaurant hosts several special events throughout the year including our ever-popular high teas, our famed Masterchef dinners, and the fun-filled Cocktail evening.

Please see our calendar of events for details.

Our fully licensed restaurant boasts a wide collection of beers, spirits, and wines. Every service features a specialty mocktail and cocktail created by the students.

The restaurant provides a valuable opportunity for our hospitality students (both kitchen and front of house) to develop their skills and knowledge under live service conditions to paying customers.
