Local college celebrate three years of restaurant success

For three years, Roots Restaurant at Accrington and Rossendale College has been providing guests with fine dining food for a fraction of the price.

Established in August 2015, the restaurant was opened as a means to give students ‘real life’ experience working in the hospitality and catering industry during their learning. The food is sourced and prepared by catering students at the college with the assistance of their tutor then served to guests by hospitality students.

Roots Restaurant boasts a 5* overall review on both Facebook and Group On, as well as a 4* overall on Trip Advisor, with guests commenting that it is a ‘hidden gem’ in Accrington. One visitor shared how “the standard of food and presentation is quite outstanding.”

Charlotte Scheffmann, Assistant Principal at Accrington and Rossendale College, commented: “It’s a fantastic opportunity for the students to be able to work in a real-life environment throughout their studies. Nothing prepares them better for work than actually working their desired job in the lead up to obtaining employment. We are incredibly proud of the restaurant and how successful it has become over the last few years, it is absolutely testament to the students and all of their hard work and dedication. Over the last 6 months they have also been busy with lots of outside catering requests which is excellent. If anyone is interested, please do get in touch!”
