Scene1 Restaurant & Commercial Kitchens

Whether you're looking for a meal for two or catering for a party of up to forty people, Scene1 is the perfect meal out!

With a changing menu every single week, there's always something new to taste and enjoy at Scene1.

Scene1's food is all freshly prepared by students at the college studying professional cookery. We hold our students to the same high standards you'd expect at any restaurant, and all of our food is always at that same high standard too.

On top of that, Scene1 has a fully licensed bar with a drinks menu featuring wine from around the world, as well a selection of beers and spirits.
