AA College Restaurant of the Year

Launched in 2016 in partnership between People 1st and AA Hotel Services, the AA College Restaurant of the Year award recognises the hard work of chef lecturers and student brigades that run college restaurants.

Part of the AA’s annual Hospitality Awards, the award gives colleges an unprecedented opportunity to be part of one of the industry’s most prestigious events and put their restaurants well and truly on the map!

The award is only open to People 1st accredited colleges that have also been awarded an AA College Rosette.

2017 Award

Entries for the 2017 People-1st sponsored AA College Restaurant of the Year award are now closed.

Successful applicants will be invited to send two learners and a lecturer to a ‘judging day’ at a prestigious London hotel in June where they will have the opportunity to ‘sell their college restaurant’ to the judges as well as experience life behind the scenes of a busy London hotel.  

Following this, the judges will identify a shortlist of three college restaurants for the award.

The winner of the AA College Restaurant of the Year 2017 will be announced at the annual AA Hospitality Awards in London on 25 September.
