On the 26th May we went to The Dining Room based within the main campus at West Cheshire College in Ellesmere Port and we weren’t disappointed!
There was a selection of freshly baked breads to start with (that were apparently rather lovely & very moreish) whilst waiting for our starters. There were several options to choose from and all were very well received. My salmon pate was easily one of the best I have had and despite being faced with my dietary requirements, the chefs were able to accommodate me with no fuss & the wait staff made sure I was looked after at all times.
When the main courses came out, again we weren’t disappointed, every plate was presented absolutely beautifully & tasted better than they looked. I had the salmon & prawn risotto, which was a delight and perfectly cooked, and the other offerings clearly went down well if the comments are anything to go by!
The piece de resistance, however, was dessert. The chefs prepared a showcase of desserts that was fantastic….. this started with a strawberry & cream shot, flambéed pineapple ( prepared in front of us and was rather spectacular!) and was followed by huge slates with a selection of desserts that included Operas, lemon merengue, toffee profiteroles, mint flavoured tempered chocolate shards, fresh fruit, sable biscuits and merengue churros with chocolate sauce. As I was unable to partake in these beautiful offerings, I was presented with a separate plate with fresh mixed fruits, berry parfait & the biggest merengue I had ever seen!!! All of this was happily received and greatly enjoyed.
The service was brilliant, bar none, and given that this is all serviced by students, I couldn’t find fault at all and topped by very reasonable prices this is definitely one to put on the return list!
