History of success
Northbrook has been teaching hospitality and catering for many years and countless students have gone on to enjoy careers as chefs, restaurant owners and catering managers. In 2010, a recent graduate won the Young Chef of the Year prize at the Sussex Food and Drink Awards. The department also had the pleasure of providing the catering for Her Majesty the Queen and her entourage during a visit to Worthing.
Ideal training environment
The Hospitality and Catering department is centred around our on-campus restaurant and adjoining bistro. Both venues are open to the public, providing real work training environments for our students. Teaching staff have extensive experience in the industry, with expertise ranging from working in Michelin star kitchens to managing bars and restaurants in the West End. In addition, all students receive training in food hygiene.
The Arundel Restaurant
The Arundel Restaurant serves lunches and dinners, ranging from buffet to full silver service and flambé. There is a fully licensed bar attached to the restaurant where you will often find Level 3 students serving a wide range of cocktails. The restaurant is well known for its fine cuisine and hospitality, priced extremely reasonably, so reservations are essential. Go to restaurant webpage...
