    We love the concept of students setting out on their respective culinary journeys cooking and serving your food and drink. The supervision is always discreet and supportive. Food has always been first class and well presented, we enjoy UCB experience.

    Visited the c of f many times in the past with both large groups or individually. Always the food is of excellent quality with good service. Very interesting to talk with the students to find out how they are enjoying their experience and what they aspire to. Probably the best value in Birmingham for a quality restaurant. Looking forward to visiting more in the future.

    Food was exceptional, as was the service. A chance to eat food cooked by the stars of the future for a modestly priced sum.

    Second visit to the Birmingham College of food and it gets better every time. Our waiters Ellis and Amelia were amazing, attentive and knowledgeable without being intrusive. This really is a hidden gem and I can't recommend it highly enough. Three courses for £35 is amazing value and the Halfpenny Green wine is a must. We will definitely be returning and if you want a top quality night of excellent food, service and ambience then look no further.

    This is the second time I have been to the college restaurant the first was just myself and my partner we enjoyed it so much that I recommend it to some friends. Yesterday there was 8, we all had a 3 course lunch every one said that the food was excellent we also had four bottles of locally produced wine which also was excellent and extremely good value. Highly recommended will certainly be going back again.
