Cheap Fine Dining at Your Local College

Written by Karen Bryan

I’d been intending to try out the Gallery Restaurant at the Stirling Campus of Forth Valley College. The purpose of the college restaurant is to provide real life training for hospitality students.

You need to book a table at the Gallery Restaurant, either by phone or by completing an online booking request. During term time the restaurant serves lunch Mondays to Fridays from 12.00 to 13.30 and dinner on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 17.00 to 18.30. Lunch costs £7.50 for two courses, £10 for three courses. Dinner costs £10 for two courses, £12.50 for three courses. I booked a table for lunch.

The restaurant has lovely views over the River Forth towards the Ochil Hills and the Wallace Monument.

My Cheese Souffle starter was delicious..

My main course was Pork Lion, served with Mashed Potato and Veg. The meat was tender and lean.

I had the Banana Bread and Butter Pudding for dessert, which was served with Ice Cream. It was quite nice and light compared to some bread and butter puddings.

I will be returning to the Gallery Restaurant at the Forth Valley College Stirling Campus. The food was really tasty and great value for money.

Why don’t you check out if your local college has a restaurant offering fine dining at low prices?
