AA College Rosette: Highly Commended (Foxholes Restaurant)

Runshaw is a large sixth form college in central Lancashire, offering both, A level and vocational qualifications. 

We have an award-winning training restaurant called Foxholes, which has been established for over 30 years. Our ethos has always been that we take pride in quality and service.

The AA inspectors have commented on the passion of our students, regardless of their level, applauded our great team ethos, praised our cuisine and presentation.

We would not be the success we are today if we did not create a warm, friendly atmosphere where students feel part of the team, sharing our goals, ultimately leading to employment at some of the best establishments in the world.
