    We were shown to our table by a friendly polite young man. We had a hiccup when drinks arrived, my friend had ordered a rose wine and was given a white, she didn`t want to cause a fuss, so accepted it, as our server seemed to be having trouble with writing out the order, I was a little disappointed with the tomato tart, it was really flavorsome, however the pastry was tough. Also on the mains, the salmon was a little dry. However my lemon sponge was excellent. Such a shame the littke niggles as we dine here regularly and all of the food is normally fabulous. All of he students were friendly, polite and helpful, especially Keaton, who adjusted our wobbly table.

    We were greeted by a very professional young lady and shown to our table. The table students, were, again, professional if a little shy. Everything was done as expected. The food was delicious , well presented and served. It was all we have come to expect from UCB restsurant. I come fairly often and will continue to do so. Well done everyone

    Excellent meal, as always. I was a little surprised that a cloth/serviette was not used on the neck of the bottle, when pouring the wine.

    Wow, what a place to eat at, brilliant! A definite place to go to, such good value, lovely food, exceedingly friendly staff, a credit to the college and Birmingham. Well done team, we had a lovely dinner. A slight hiccup on the main course being delivered a little late, profuse apologies received, things do go wrong when dining anywhere and it was well handled. Thank you to the reviewer who shared needing to enter the college to get into the restaurant, without this think we would have struggled to locate it. A huge thank you to all who cooked and looked after us, it was a fine dinner.
