CH&FS – The Centre for Hospitality and Food Studies

Located in our Colchester campus, CI Restaurants 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. The restaurants are open to the public during term time.

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.
