Located in our Colchester campus, CH&FS (The Centre for Hospitality and Food Studies) offers guests the opportunity to dine in either of our two restaurants – the Balkerne Restaurant and the Colne Bistro. Every customer that walks through our doors is directly contributing towards the success of the next generation of hospitality staff – both chefs and front of house.
Award Winning Restaurants
Officially opened by its patron, Gary Rhodes, in October 2002, our multi-million pound purpose-built Centre for Hospitality and Food Studies provides excellent facilities and training for hospitality students and aims to give them a realistic sense of what it is like to work in the hospitality industry.
The Balkerne Restaurant and Colne Bistro are now closed for the summer and will re-open in September (week commencing 16th). We are unable to take any reservations until we return, as opening days/times will not be confirmed until then. We thank you for your continued support and look forward to seeing you all next term.
