Coronavirus Update

Eastleigh College has moved to online learning, as such campuses are closed to the vast majority of learners. The College remains open (including over the Easter holiday period) for 16-18 learners of key workers, and those learners with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). However, for both categories, learners are asked to stay at home where it is safe to do so. Consistent with public health advice, learners and staff are asked to follow public health guidance and the steps outlined via the 'read more' button.

Hospitality & Catering students announce Christmas menu

Hospitality and Catering students at Eastleigh College are excited to announce the launch of their Christmas Menu at the in-house Red Carpet restaurant. For the past term students have been learning the knowledge and practising the skills required to serve delicious festive food.

The Christmas Menu runs from Tuesday 3rd December until Thursday 19th December. A three course lunch and four course dinner is offered on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and is very reasonably priced at £13.50 and £19.50 respectively. All the food is cooked and served by the students under supervision from professional chefs. The mouth-watering menu includes chestnut, roasted butternut squash and Bramley apple soup; braised lamb shank with vegetables and a rosemary and cranberry jus and savoury cheesecake with Christmas chutney.

Megan Scott-Munden, Level 3 Professional Catering student, said "I'm excited about working in a busy kitchen; it will be good experience for the industry".

The Red Carpet restaurant provides an ideal environment for the students to develop their skills by offering a professional restaurant service to the public. They have the opportunity to practice their customer service skills, wait tables and work behind the licensed bar, whilst the catering students create a wide range of dishes to an extremely high standard.  

Spaces are filling fast so book your Christmas table now on telephone 023 8091 1053.
