Serving exquisite, varied and locally sourced menus throughout the week.
Nestled within our City Campus overlooking the Sheffield skyline, The Sheffield College has a little culinary secret we would like to share with you – The Silver Plate Restaurant.
Run by our fantastic Catering and Hospitality students under the supervision of our expert staff (three of whom are Master Chefs of Great Britain), the department has recently been awarded a much coveted Hospitality Guild gold accreditation, with Patisserie and Food & Beverage Service also being recognised as Centres for Excellence. In addition, The Silver Plate Restaurant has been awarded the prestigious AA College Rosette Highly Commended award – one of only 16 colleges nationally to hold such an accolade.
Serving exquisite, varied, and locally sourced food throughout the week, the award winning Silver Plate Restaurant allows students to showcase their talent as we host tasting menus, lunch and evening meals, and our sought after themed nights to the public.
The Silver Plate has links with a range of top industry chefs, including Rupert Rowley (Head Chef of Michelin starred restaurant Fischer’s at Baslow) and Tom Lawson of double AA Rosette restaurant, Rafters. These chefs regularly provide our students with guest lectures and support them to provide our customers with the highest quality food and service.
It's not just our teaching staff who are outstanding in their field! In 2017 three students were awarded UK Young Restaurant Team of the Year for their incredible hard work producing and serving a three-course, Italian inspired menu.
Our lunch and dinner menus are based on seasonal, fresh produce and change regularly, so you're always in store for something delicious and new.
