Located on the ground floor of our Rochdale Campus we are accessible from St Mary's Gate for pedestrians and offer free on-site parking with a disabled car park at the back of the College for customers driving - please click here for a map.

The restaurant is open during term time serving lunch and evening gourmet meals as well as hosting theme nights on specific Wednesdays throughout the year. We also serve Afternoon Tea every Thursday afternoon from 3pm to 5pm if you want to try something a little different!

The experience our students gain from working in a premier a la carte restaurant is second to none, giving them the skills to work in top restaurants the world over.

The trainee students cover everything from kitchen and food preparation and Michelin styled plating right through to experience as a sommelier.

The restaurant has a modern contemporary feel and can seat up to 70 diners with a separate bar area if you want to call in just for drinks. Our team is made up of students who are studying and training for qualifications, and this is great experience for them, but they deliver an excellent level of service and are supervised in the kitchen by our head chef, Sam Everett.

We use the freshest ingredients from local suppliers and our menus do change from time to time to match the seasons and available ingredients. We have sample menus for you to see some of the meals we prepare but you can contact us closer to your visit to find out what is likely to be available. Some meals must be ordered in advance but more details of this are available on our menus page.

The Riverside Restaurant is also available for private bookings, including parties and functions, on Saturdays by request. Please contact us for more information.

With the help of our head chef and students, we are extremely proud of the reputation our restaurant has developed, click here to read the reviews.
