East Avenue Restaurant will be reopening on Thursday 20th May 2021.
To keep our college community and visitors as safe as possible, we have invested in additional Covid secure measures for diners at the East Avenue Restaurant.
Please park in the main car park which is accessed from Cherbourg Road. You will see a sign for East Avenue Restaurant on the board.
Please access the College via the rear entrance.
Upon arrival, you will be greeted by a member of staff or learner and given a lanyard which will allow you access to the restaurant.
If you apply for lateral flow test kit in advance from the government (https://www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests), you should undertake a test at home 48 hours prior to arrival and should show your negative result when you arrive.
Testing is also available onsite in our dedicated test centre where a friendly member of the Covid team will guide you through the process. The results are usually available in less than 5 minutes and you will then be escorted up to the restaurant and seated at your respective tables. Sometimes the result can take up to 30 minutes but this is rare.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact the East Avenue team who will be happy to talk to you about our Covid secure restaurant and lateral flow testing.
East Avenue restaurant is an oasis at Eastleigh College, offering modern British cuisine to members of the public at very reasonable prices. The restaurant is staffed by learners studying Hospitality and Catering at the College, and allows them to develop their skills and experience by offering a professional restaurant service.
Hospitality learners have the opportunity to practise their customer service skills, waiting tables and behind the licensed bar, while the catering learners create a wide range of dishes to an extremely high standard.
