Hospitality and Catering students at North Shropshire College’s (NSC) Oswestry Campus have been training hard in the College’s very own training restaurant, Scholars. Scholars Restaurant is open to the public for lunch on Tuesday and Wednesday from 10am during College term-time and is open for bookings on Monday evening between 6pm and 6.30pm. All menus are created by the students and form part of their studies and vocational assessment. Students from Level 1, 2 and 3 staff each role within the restaurant, including; Chef, Waiter and Barista.
Recently, students have been using seasonal ingredients to create new dishes for the menu. Toni Mooney and Bradley Mosley have created a pasta dish using roasted courgette, mushroom, bacon and garlic bound in a cheese liaison.
Tutor Dan Tompson comments, ‘We encourage our students to be creative with ingredients particularly in relation to the current season. Our students are responsible for developing menus that are popular with guests both at lunch time and in the evening and utilise feedback to enhance dishes and repeat those that work well in the future.’
The Restaurant frequently caters for groups and parties inside the restaurant, for more information or to book, please call Scholars directly on 01691 688053 or main switchboard on 688000.
