Conveniently located on the first floor of Sussex Coast College, next to Hastings train and bus station, Coast training restaurant is staffed by our Hospitality and Culinary art students with support from Vocational Skills Practitioner Rob Rowley, Restaurant Manager, Jakki Pransky and Head Chef, Stephen Horn. The students prepare, cook, present and serve delicious contemporary dishes in the restaurant, as part of their training, at an affordable price.

Throughout the year the students practice a variety of service styles and techniques including silver service and different types of table theatre. On Thursday evenings, we offer a

5 course dining experience, for £20.95 per person. Your evening begins with a complimentary cocktail or mocktail and canapés on arrival, 5 courses including a fish course and sorbet, and then to finish off your meal, a choice of tea or coffee. We also have specialty liqueur coffees available at an additional cost.
